After escaping unscathed from a clumsy tackle against Werder Bremen on Saturday, Matthias Sammer has described Lewandowski as lucky.
Lewandowski was left crumbled on the pitch after colliding with Werder Bremen goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald in the 70th minute and wasn’t offered a penalty for the collision.
However, lewandowski was able to complete the game and Bayern won 1-0 thanks to Muller and in the process got a new Bundesliga record of nine wins to start a season.
Sammer wasn’t happy after the match.
He said: “It was a penalty. We have had tremendous luck that Robert Lewandowski is not injured.
“I’m now curious to see if there will be the same crying as there would have been if it was the other way around. It will interest me in the next few days.”
Lewandowski, though, agreeing that a foul should have been called, was more stoic.
He added: “It’s not easy for strikers in that situation. I think it was a clear penalty, but fortunately we still took three points. From tomorrow on we focus on the Champions League.”
