Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann said Friday that he will not veto a possible sale of Robert Lewandowski, wanted by Barcelona, and assured that in general terms he is not the right person to impose vetoes on one or another decision.
"I'm not the right person to impose vetoes. An important maxim of my job as a coach is: don't make yourself too big," Nagelsmann said at the Bayern press conference.
The decisions, he added, are always made jointly by the president of the Board of Directors, Oliver Kahn, the sporting director, Hasan "Brazzo" Salihamidzic, and the coach. "There is always a communication between Oliver Kahn, Brazzo and myself to decide certain things. I will never speak publicly for or against something as if my word were the law. For that I do not have enough importance and that must continue to be the case" , said.
Nagelsmann said that he knows what Lewandowski is thinking, that he has permanent communication with him and not only because of the current situation, but he said that he was not going to reveal anything more about it as he did not about the content of his conversations with players. "I never talk about things that he discussed confidentially with the players. Anything you have to ask Robert," he added.
Lewandowski has a contract with Bayern until 2023 and it has emerged that he has no intention of renewing it. Although Bayern's public position so far is to rule out an advantage this summer, press reports have circulated according to which the club could change its attitude in the face of a offer of around 40 million and before the possibility of having a successor.
Lewandowski turns 34 in August and has been at Bayern since 2014.
