Borussia Dortmund striker Lewandowski laments another Bundesliga defeat.
He is being courted by some of the best clubs in Europe, but it seems that Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is not a happy bunny.
Dortmund slipped 10 points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich as they suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, thanks to a goal from Heung Min Son.
It was Dortmund’s third defeat in four matches, and was compounded by injuries to Nuri Sahin and Sven Bender. Both players will now miss the crucial Champions League clash with Marseille in midweek, a game which Dortmund must win if they are to make the last 16.
And Lewandowski took the opportunity to have a good old moan. “We just didn’t play well,” he said. “Nobody said very much. We were all too disappointed. It’s a difficult situation for everybody, not just because of the defeat, but because of the injuries as well.
“Obviously we have big injury problems but we can’t be happy with out performance. It is not a pleasant situation to be in.
“We can’t bury our heads in the sand. We still have a vital Champions League match to come and we’re desperate to qualify.
“We have to get over the defeat to Bayer and focus on our job in Marseille.”
Lewandowski’s misery will have been compounded by the stunning form of Bayern Munich, who thrashed Werder Bremen 7-0 in the latest round of games to stretch their lead at the top.
The Pole is widely expected to join Bayern at the end of the season, although David Moyes’s Manchester United remain linked with a deal.
