Lewandowski: I'm going to Bayern to win titles

The Polish striker is leaving Borussia Dortmund for the Allianz Arena this summer and is hoping his medal collection will grow in Bavaria

Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski says his move to Bayern Munich is motivated by his desire to win trophies.

The Polish striker is quitting Signal Iduna Park after a successful four year spell with Jurgen Klopp’s side which saw him win two Bundesliga titles and one DFB-Pokal.

However, the Bavarian club have won the league and cup for the last two seasons and Lewandowski is looking to expand his medal collection at the Allianz Arena.

“It is my goal to win and collect big titles,” he told Bild. “At Bayern, for sure the opportunity is bigger.”

Bayern beat BVB 2-0 in the Pokal final on Saturday and Lewandowski admitted that he was disappointed not to sign off with a title at Dortmund.

“After the game, it hurt a lot. I just wanted to leave Dortmund with a title. We won the Bundesliga twice, the cup once and reached the Champions League final.

“It was a beautiful time, I won’t forget it. But it was the right time to take the next step.”

Despite his exit, the 25-year-old is backing Dortmund to be successful in the future.

“I expect a lot [of them]. When a good player leaves, Dortmund were always able to buy new players. They will manage it again. You can count on Dortmund – I’m sure.”
