Bayern Munich striker Roberto Lewandowski has revealed that he had an Inter shirt and was a keen follower of Italian football when he was younger.
Speaking to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, the 33-year-old explained that while he did not specifically root for the Nerazzurri over other Italian sides they were the team whose shirt he sometimes wore.
Lewandowski has established himself as one of the top strikers of his generation, having helped Bayern to multiple Bundesliga titles and the Champions League as well as winning the league and reaching the Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund.
The Pole is on track to finish yet another season as the top scorer in the German top flight as he shows few signs of slowing down.
One thing that Lewandowski has not yet done in his career is play in Italy, as he has spent the majority of his playing career in Germany, though he has revealed that he has long been a fan of Serie A.
“I followed Italian football a lot because in Serie A there are top teams like Inter, Milan, Juventus, and Roma,” the striker explained.
He went on that “I had an Inter shirt, but I didn’t cheer for any particular team. I liked watching the league for the world-class players who were in it and for the exceptional atmosphere in the stadiums.”
