Robert Lewandowski's head injury could be far worse than we feared

This, from Lewandowski's agent, does not sound like good news.

As you're well aware of by now, Robert Lewandowski suffered a head injury during Bayern Munich's penalty shootout loss to Borussia Dortmund in the semifinals of the DFB Pokal. Lewa caught an incidental forearm to the head by Dortmund's goalkeeper Mitch Langerak.

For some unknown reason, Lewandowski was allowed to go back into the game around the 120th minute. For the four remaining minutes of stoppage time, Lewandowski meandered around without contributing much. He was not involved in the penalty shootout.

Over on the initial injury post, commenter fleuret brought the following tweets to our attention. They are from Lewandowski's agent Cezary Kucharski.

This states that Lewa is on his way to the hospital and doesn't remember the final minute of the match. He then goes on to congratulate BVB, while suggesting that they needed help to get their victory.

The agent follows up after the testing and says that the results "aren't good" and that he can't write anymore about it.

Special thanks to Alicia Toler over at Dynamo Theory for help on the translations.

Fear for the worst and hope for the best. Head injuries are terrifying. Please be well, Robert.
