One of the agents for Robert Lewandowski has expressed the frustration of his client with what he viewed as a lack of support from coach Carlo Ancelotti and the team in his race to win the Torjagerkanone, the award given to the top scorer in the Bundesliga.

“Robert told me there was no support from the coach or an appeal to support him in the final game to become top scorer,” Lewandowski’s agent Maik Barthel told kicker via beIN Sports. “He really hoped that the team would support him proactively.”

Lewandowski was shut out in Bayern’s final game, a 4-1 victory over Freiburg, while Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was able to score twice on the same day in Dortmund’s 4-3 win over Werder Bremen to take his goal total to 31, surpassing Lewandowski by one goal and winning the award.

Earlier this month the Polish striker told ESPN that, “It does not hurt anymore, but it did at first,” when discussing losing his scoring crown. Lewandowski added, “I wasn’t completely satisfied with the way my team helped me. Immediately after the last game, I was angry and disappointed with my team. That was the feeling I had.”
