Poland's Robert Lewandowski, who left Bayern Munich this summer to join Barcelona, accused the German club of lying about his departure from the club on Friday and said he felt the time was right for a new challenge.
"I feel I am in the right position, in the right place. What happened in the last few weeks before I left Barcelona was also political. The club tried to look for a fight to justify my sale because maybe it was difficult to explain to the fans," Lewandowski said in an interview with 'ESPN'. "And I have to accept this, even if there were a lot of lies, a lot of lies about me. They were false things, but in the end I know that the fans, even in this period, are still very supportive," he added.
