Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has criticised Robert Lewandowski after the Poland striker questioned the club’s transfer policy.
Speaking after Bayern’s 2-0 Super Cup defeat to Dortmund last month, Lewandowski said that the Bundesliga champions needed more senior players who could help the squad immediately.
Salihamidzic, though, has defended Bayern’s transfer policy, saying young players such as 18-year-old Alphonso Davies and 20-year-old Michael Cuisance were vital to the club’s future.
He also warned Lewandowski for making such statements in public.
"He does not have to worry about my job or the job of (CEO) Karl-Heinz Rummenigge or (president) Uli Hoeness - and certainly not in public. He does not have to - I think he understood that", Salihamidzic told Kicker.
"If we do not do that (invest in young players), it will be difficult for Bayern, we can not spend hundreds of millions every summer.
“That's what we talk about again and again with coach Niko Kovac, and although we aim to win the championship and once again the Champions League, we need to invest in these young players on a regular basis.”
