Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has spoken of his discomfort with the management of the Bundesliga club, who had promised him that he would be allowed to move to Bayern Munich this summer.
Dortmund blocked Lewandowski's Bayern move after the Bavarians captured the signature of their poster boy Mario Gotze, by paying the release-clause in his contract.
Last year's Champions League finalists are refusing to lose two of their best players in the same summer to their biggest domestic rival, even after successfully strengthening with the additions of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Abaumeyang amongst others this summer.
Lewandowski feels he was treated unfairly by the management and is hoping that the situation doesn't leave a mark on him.
He is quoted by ESPN: "This is a little bit strange, not so German. We (the players) are acting normally, but Borussia's management is not. I always give it my all. That they keep me is not fair."
The 24 year old also recall the German Super Cup match. He added: "The Super Cup against Bayern was only the beginning of the season. I don't know if the situation will fail to leave a mark on me.
"It's in my subconscious and there will come a time when I will be in a bad mood before the game."
Lewandowski is believed to be earning 1.8m euros a year, which is the contract he signed in the summer of 2010 when he left Lech Poznan for Signal Iduna Park. Talks of a new contract at Dortmund never reached the advanced stage for a deal to be agreed.
Dortmund also promised the 24-year-old Polish striker that he would be given 6m euros plus bonuses if he stayed and saw out his contract, but that pay rise didn't materialise.
Despite feeling at home with his teammates, Lewandowski said the management team is not making him feel comfortable, and so he feels cheated by the club.
