Robert Lewandowski has faced hundreds of defenders during his professional career. In an interview with “Kwartalnik Sportowy” he admitted who was the biggest brutal in the Bundesliga. He quickly got a reply from his former rival.
Many defenders did not have an easy life with Robert Lewandowski. The Polish opponents often resorted to fouls in order to stop the sniper. However, Lewy especially mentions one of them.
It’s about Carlos Zambrano. He is a former Peruvian international who is currently playing for Boca Juniors in Argentina. Before that, he spent a long time in Europe, competing with Lewandowski in 2012-2016.
– There was a player from Eintracht Frankfurt, his name was Zambrano. Guest from South America. He wasn’t focused on the ball at all, just to hurt me. It was visible on the pitch. Then I was irritated many times that the judge did not notice it – said Lewandowski.
The Pole got an instant response on social media. His words reached Zambrano, who spoke on the matter, communicating his position.
– Dear Robert Lewandowski, thank you for remembering me a little, and with such love. As you well know my friend, this is football. We always play hard and put our whole heart into every action. But never with malice he replied.
– I have respect for you as for a professional and great friend. It was an honor for me to be able to compete with you. I wish you nothing but success Zambrano emphasized.
