With two such prolific attacking players playing at one club, there will always be disagreement bound to arise between the two, and we have seen that happening in the past between Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski, as arguments on the pitch have been rather frequent in the past.
With their differing styles of play, the two did clash a bit to begin with, but with Lewandowski now having been at Bayern for 3 years, the forward has stated the duo’s relationship is now much better compared to what it was previously. The Polishman has stated that he now has a great feeling when he plays with Robben, having become used to Robben’s play style down to the finest detail:
“Things were a bit difficult between me and Robben at first. I had to get used to him, I have to be honest about that.
“Our styles of play were very different, things were just not completely right. But look at how things are now.
“We only need to look at each other one second to know what the other is going to do. That is an amazing feeling on the pitch. He knows what I want and the other way around.
“Arjen is a great player and a very nice guy.” Via kickoff.com
Nobody wants to hear about two players not getting on at a club, as team chemistry is so very important to success when it comes to interplay on the pitch. This news is therefore very encouraging, and it seems that Bayern family is stronger than ever.
