Barcelona Star Robert Lewandowski Allegedly Accuses Of Owing Polish Football Federation Money

“There is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski plays a central role in Poland’s national team setup. The 35-year-old has been the team’s key figure for several years, and this is likely to persist until he decides to retire from international football.”

Nonetheless, the bond between Lewandowski and the Polish Football Federation (PZPN) is somewhat strained. As indicated by Meczyki (via Diario AS), the Barcelona striker is said to have a debt with PZPN. It’s claimed that he initially agreed to cover the cost of a dinner during the World Cup but subsequently shifted the responsibility to the Federation.

However, Tomasz Zawislak – who is Lewandowski’s best friend – has categorically denied these accusations.

“I heard a rumour that the PZPN spreads such nonsense to attack Robert just before the most important qualifying match. What a coincidence. As is often the case with rumours, they often have little to do with the truth.

“The fact is that Robert paid for the dinner privately and never waited for or received any refund from the Polish Football Association.”

Barcelona will be worried about the situation affecting Lewandowski once he returns to the club after Poland’s next match. He has just started to hit form this season, and the last thing the Catalans want is for that to be affected.
