Robert Lewandowski’s much-anticipated move to Bayern Munich was confirmed this week, with the Polish striker set to leave Borussia Dortmund for their Bundesliga rivals at the end of the season.
The lethal marksman will move to the Allianz Arena on a free transfer, in what is a bitter blow for the Signal Iduna Park outfit.
Lewandowski will still represent Dortmund for the remainder of this season though, and as such it is believed that the eastern European goalgetter is worried about the backlash of the fans.
Bild report that Lewandowski has received hate messages through social media, with the newspaper suggesting that he may well take drastic steps to ensure his safety.
The German source state that the forward is considering hiring bodyguards in a bid to protect himself and his family, as disgruntled Dortmund supporters target him after his betrayal.
Most of the Premier League’s top sides were linked with a move for Lewandowski at one time or another, and the Pole may well wish he had opted to leave Germany as he gets a frosty reception for the rest of this season.
