Marco Reus snubs hug from Robert Lewandowski

Published 9 Comments

Robert Lewandowski knew he would be letting a few people down when he left Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich in the summer. The Polish striker ran down his contract at the Westfalenhallen to join their biggest rivals, leaving fans more than gutted.

But while the fans would always fail to understand Lewandowski's decision, he seemed to hope that his former team-mates would give him a warm welcome as the two teams played each other in the Bundesliga for the first time time season. He was wrong.

Having helped Bayern Munich complete a comeback by scoring the equalising goal in a 2-1 win, Lewandowski went over to Marco Reus to consolidate him on a tough defeat. However, Reus was less than receptive to Lewandowski's pity.

Instead of reciprocating Lewandowski's love, he left the Pole hanging and quickly backed away as if nothing had ever happened. Luckily, TV cameras sensed the tone and gave everyone at home a nice little cringe to finish what had been an entertaining game.

Bayern obsession

Bayern Munich's habit of stealing Borussia Dortmund's players is a much loathed trait in Germany. While the Bavarians seem to have no trouble with winning the Bundesliga year after year, they still see it necessary to steal players from the only team capable of challenging them.

Ironically, they could be going back to Dortmund to steal a familiar face once again next summer.

Joining him at the Allianz?

Although Reus could regret his actions in the near future as it is well known that Bayern Munich will attempt to sign him when a £20 million clause in his contract activates next summer. While a number of clubs will be chasing the flying forward, joining former team-mates Lewandowski and Mario Gotze will be a tempting proposition.

However, it is clear to see that Reus is not open to the idea of Dortmund players joining their arch-rivals. It shouldn't matter to him too much; Reus is likely to have offers from half a dozen of Europe's biggest clubs should he decide to leave the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp.
