Bayern Munich Confident On Chasing Down Dortmund Without Robert Lewandowski Cover

Bayern Munich have sold off their only backup striker, Sandro Wagner to a Chinese Super League outfit this January but the Bundesliga are not the least bit concerned.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic assured the fans on how the Bavarians plan on dealing with an injury to Robert Lewandowski, should there ever be one. He said, “Sandro Wagner came up to us and asked for a release from his contract. He has a very attractive offer from China and we have met his request. We expressly thank Sandro for spending time with FC Bayern and wish him all the best and much success for his future in China.”

“Sandro asked [to leave] because he had an offer from China with an incredibly high salary. We discussed that with the coach and Niko Kovac thought that with Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry, in case of doubt, we have alternatives. But Robert Lewandowski has never been injured at Bayern Munich since 2014.”

Borussia Dortmund are 6 points ahead in the Bundesliga and Rummenigge accepted how challenging a comeback is without another attacking figure.

“Borussia Dortmund are playing a very good and very stable season,” he further added.

“Catching them up there again will be very difficult, but we will work to keep the tension at the top alive.”
