"Barcelona is caught in a scandal with Russia". Lewandowski had to justify himself to Ukraine
Barcelona footballers Alejandro Balde and Sergi Roberto recorded a welcome video for fans from Russia, provoking a loud scandal. The clip was posted on Instagram by Okko Sport, which broadcasts La Liga matches in Russia.
"See you soon!" "You are also part of this great victory! I hope that together we will win many more titles!" the Blue and Gold said in the video, which was filmed at Barcelona's media day.
Representatives of Shakhtar Donetsk reacted to the video and made a special appeal to Robert Lewandowski on Twitter.
"Robert, do you think this situation is normal? As the captain of the Polish national team, a country that helps Ukraine so much, you must understand the scale of the tragedy and the absurdity of such an act," the 'miners' wrote on Twitter.
One of Barca's leaders was unpleasantly surprised by what happened.
"I learned about this recording after a while and was very surprised, to put it mildly. I asked the club about this situation and I know that it was not an official position, but a statement during a meeting with the media that have the rights to broadcast La Liga," - Interia Sport quoted Lewandowski as saying.
Pole added that in such situations, you often don't even know who you're talking to.
"Of course, this is not an excuse, because someone obviously did not take care of something and as a result, it turned out very badly. At the same time, as far as I know, the club intends to take some action in response to this situation," Robert summarized.
