Karl-Heinz Rumenigge bemused by Robert Lewandowski's comments

"I am sorry for what Lewandowski said. It's not the first time he talks bad about our club and I know his agent Barthel is behind his statements". Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski's interview, in which he pointed out that Bayern were spending $50 million on players while their competition was shelling out twice as much, probably didn't go down too well.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rumenigge has voiced his displeasure over the comments made by Robert Lewandowski about the club's transfer policy in recent years.

Carlo Ancelotti could leave Bayern Munich as soon as January according to the club's former player Mario Basler.

Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti says he sees no need for talks with Robert Lewandowski following an interview in which the Poland worldwide was critical of the club's transfer dealings.

Now the Bavarian giants want to atone with a convincing display against 2016/17 Belgian champions Anderlecht. "In worldwide football that has long since been more of an average [price] than a top price", he said.

However, Rummenigge said: "We've had a serious and successful philosophy for a long time and enjoyed great success with that".

Robert apparently let the Paris transfers irritate him.

"Football is pure capitalism, everyone wants to make money in this sector". I regret his statements. I don't think though, that a player would have that amount of power.

"We can do better than a year ago", admitted Ancelotti.

However, Rummenigge has taken exception to his remarks and slammed Lewandowski, whose agent said the player was "disappointed" over a perceived lack of support in his hunt for the golden boot last season. "Lewandowski can determine this himself by looking at his contract - he's signed until 2021 without a buyout clause".
