Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez saw Robert Lewandowski do many great things at Bayern Munich and was certainly sad to see the Polish star leave for Barcelona.
However, the Frenchman also understands why Lewandowski would like a new challenge.
“Of course we will miss him and his goals, but we can go on without him,” the 26-year-old defender told Sport1 in a recent interview. “He was here for eight years, so he wanted to do something different and get to know him. new culture. There is no bad blood there. Robert also said goodbye to us in a very positive way, expressing his thanks for the time we spent together. I wish him all the best for his new challenge in Barcelona.”
One of the players that Hernandez expects to help fill the void left by Lewandowski will be Sadio Mane.
“He impressed us a lot, and not just in training. He’s an incredibly humble and friendly guy who has blended in really well with us in a few days. Of course it helps that we speak French a lot in the dressing room,” Hernandez said.
