Striker not going anywhere, says Klopp.
Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has rubbished reports that star striker Robert Lewandowski will be leaving the club this summer, Sky Sports reports.
The 24-year-old has seen his stock rise considerably this season and has become one of the most sought after strikers in the world as he has been linked with moves to Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
However, despite the continued speculation and the player’s insistence that he doesn’t know what the future holds, his manager, Jurgen Klopp, believes that the Polish international will be going nowhere when the transfer window reopens.
“There is no topic of Lewandowski’s transfer right now,” Klopp told Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy.
“The rest of the team and I talk and think only about the final right now.
“My conclusion is that Robert is not leaving Borussia, and he will play here for the next season and I will be able to use him. That is why I don’t want to even think about to which club he may fit better.”
Klopp also heaped praise on full-back Lukasz Piszczek, who he felt had been Dortmund’s best player this season.
“All of my Polish players did their best and played a great part in our success, but the greatest and the best season was had by Lukasz Piszczek. I know only a few players that with his health problems could keep such high level.”
