Lewandowski: Klopp is a bad teacher

Poland national team and Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski shared his thoughts on former coach Jurgen Klopp.

Roberta Lewandowski was signed by Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan in 2010. In four years in the Black-and-Yellows’ camp, Robert scored 74 goals in 131 matches, leading his team to the 2012/13 Champions League final. It was during this time that he worked under the current Liverpool coach and best manager of the year, Jurgen Klopp.

Now the Pole speaks positively of the German, because he taught him simple, but as practice has shown, necessary things in the position of the center forward. Lewandowski likened Klopp to an mean teacher, whose lessons do not go unnoticed,

“For me, he was not only like a second father. He was also like a "bad" teacher. "Bad" in the good sense of the word. Which teacher do you remember best? Not someone who simplified your life and did not expect anything from you, but someone who was strict with you, who put pressure on you and tried to get the best results from you. A teacher like that made you better, didn't he? Klopp was like that.

He was not satisfied with your C’s, he only needed excellent students. And he did not demand this from you for himself, but for your own sake,” Lewandowski said.

Robert won the FIFA Football Player of the Year award for a reason. The merit of Bayern's success in all tournaments throughout 2020 lies on his shoulders. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the 32-year-old scorer is among the top three most efficient players of the last decade.

Now Bayern are largely dependent on players in other positions. Kimmich plays a very important role in the success of the Munich team, and without him the club started having problems in the league. The problem for Bayern is that having created such a powerful machine, it is more difficult for Hansi Flick to rebuild it during the game, because this can only aggravate the situation. He did not spoil anything in the match with Borussia Mönchengladbach, which led to a 2:3 defeat. Therefore, Robert Lewandowski is the crown of the Reckordmeister's creation, who has collected all possible achievements, but without whom Bayern would not have succeeded.
