Lewandowski agents under fire for transfer conduct

The Polish striker's representatives have been heavily criticised for pushing the sale of the 24-year-old despite Borussia Dortmund's insistence he would be staying at the club
Members of the German Football Agent Association (DFVV) have hit out at Robert Lewandowski’s representatives for the manner in which they have dealt with the Borussia Dortmund striker's desire to leave the club.

Rumours of Lewandowski’s exit from the Westfalenstadion have been at the forefront of the transfer window following a series of impressive performances last season which culminated with the German side reaching the Champions League final in May.

The Poland international had been heavily linked with a move to Dortmund's rivals Bayern Munich until the club's CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, ruled out a move either domestically or abroad.

But Lewandowski's agents, Cezary Kucharski and Malik Barthel, have been criticised by DFVV chief Gregor Reiter for the manner in which they have tried to engineer a move away from Dortmund despite the club's stance that the 24-year-old is not for sale.

“For months they have been shouting Lewandowski’s name from the rooftop. This is not a manifestation of a serious business conduct,” Reiter said.

“Robert Lewandowski is under contract at Borussia Dortmund until June 30 2014. More than once Borussia Dortmund have made it clear that they are not willing to release the player before the end of his contract. End of discussion.”

Lewandowski scored 24 goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances last season, leading the club's scoring charts, and notched a further 10 times in the Champions League, including four goals in one game against Real Madrid.
