According to Bayern Munich’s striker Roberto Lewandowski his team is not doing enough to secure their own place in the elite of the world of football.

Bayern Munich’s attacker Robert Lewandowski doesn’t like the way his team is conducting business.

According to him, the German Bundesliga giants cannot compete in Europe unless they hire better players.

And today the team’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, has publicly rebuked his comments.

“He does not have to worry about my job or the job of (CEO) Karl-Heinz Rummenigge or (president) Uli Hoeness – and certainly not in public,” Salihamidzic told Goal.

“He does not have to – I think he understood that.”

“If we do not do that (invest in young players), it will be difficult for Bayern, we can not spend hundreds of millions every summer,” he added.

“That’s what we talk about again and again with coach Niko Kovac, and although we aim to win the championship and once again the Champions League, we need to invest in these young players on a regular basis.”

“This is immovable. As sports director, I am already filling the responsibilities of a sports director,” added Salihamidzic.

“Of course I want to keep going. I have a great responsibility, I can shape things, and of course, I have to endure a lot, but I can handle that, as I have shown.

“A lot has been achieved, I have seen a lot, learned a lot, particularly in the not so easy transfer period of 2019. In short, I have developed myself,” he concluded.
