The controversy that occurred in the match against Deportivo Alaves continues to be echoed. This is about Robert Lewandowski’s gesture, or rather the lack thereof, towards Lamine Yamal, who wanted to high five him. The Spaniard spoke on this matter.
A mini “scandal” involving Robert Lewandowski broke out in the Spanish media. First, journalists noticed that the 35-year-old did not shake hands with Xavi after the match against Real Sociedad. When asked about this situation by Polsat Sport, the FC Barcelona striker replied: – I don’t know exactly what it is about. I was going down and shook the coach’s hand normally. I must have missed something, he said. In turn, during the match against Deportivo Alaves, he did not shake Lamine Yamal’s hand after one of the actions that were supposed to irritate him.
Robert Lewandowski reacts to the controversy
The Pole already explained a few days ago that it was a coincidence and the relationship between them was normal. – There is nothing to comment on here. It was a total accident. I talked to Yamal many times and gave him advice. This was true even during this meeting. There is no subtext or meaning there, he admitted.
– You have to keep a distance from this, and the Spanish media… live with such situations. Sometimes things like to be exaggerated or interpreted in their own way – added the captain of the Polish national team.
Lamine Yamal also commented on the controversial issue
Lamine Yamal also spoke on this matter. After winning the match against Cyprus 3-1, the young Spaniard was asked about the situation involving Robert Lewandowski. – He has already explained it, such things happen on the pitch, he is just a teammate and there is no problem – he said, quoted by “Marc”.
FC Barcelona’s sporting director, Deco, also commented on this topic. The former footballer, who commented on this incident on “RAC1″, was quoted by Fabrizio Romano on his Twitter. “I am sure there is no dispute between Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal. He is the first to defend it,” he revealed.
