Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski urges his club to splash the cash on immediate game-changers rather than youth.
Speaking after Bayern’s 2-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the German Supercup, the Poland international rued the lack of game-changers among Bayern’s substitutes.
“Sure, the young players on the bench have potential, that’s true – but sometimes you need direct reinforcement from someone who can come in and help the team,” Lewandowski said.
Lewandowski had already called on Bayern to make more signings while the team was on its summer tour in the United States.
“My opinion remains the same, because today was precisely the right time where we could have looked and seen what could happen if we had such a professional player ready to come on,” the Polish striker said Saturday.
