The next Bayern Munich player to make a significant contribution to help people affected by the coronavirus epidemic has stepped forward: Robert Lewandowski and his wife Anna Lewandowska have donated €1 million to provide relief.

They issued a call to action in a statement to Bild:

We are all aware of the difficult situation around us. Today we are all playing on one team. Let’s be strong in this fight. If we can help someone, let’s do it. This situation affects every one of us. That’s why we’re asking: follow instructions and listen to the people who know best. Show responsibility!

The couple added, “We think that we will soon return to our normal life. We are in this situation together and will tough it out together.”

Lewandowski posted their message in Polish and English on Instagram:

Lewandowski’s teammates Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich announced a new #WeKickCorona initiative and likewise donated €1 million of their own money to kickstart it.

The Lewandowskis are making the most of their time at home. Anna is due to give birth to their second child sometime in the near future.
