Watzke Understands Lewandowski fury

Borussia Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has expressed understanding for Robert Lewandowski's frustration at being denied a summer transfer to Bayern Munich

Lewandowski, who is expected to join the European champions when his contract expires in a year's time, said after the Supercup 4-2 win over Bayern that he was happy still to be a Dortmund player as he gets on well with his team-mates - but not so much with certain other members of the club.

Obviously he's referring to me.

But I have got to make decisions for the good of this club.

I can fully accept that Robert is a bit frustrated.

– Hans-Joachim Watzke, speaking to Bild newspaper
