  • Robert Lewandowski’s ex-agent was detained by police in Poland on Tuesday
  • News comes following allegations that he blackmailed Bayern Munich striker
  • Cezary Kucharski claims Lewandowski owes him £18.1m from past business

Robert Lewandowski’s former agent in Poland was detained by police on Tuesday following allegations that he blackmailed the Bayern Munich striker for money.

Warsaw prosecutors’ office spokesman Marcin Sadus said they ordered the detention of Cezary Kucharski as part of their investigation into Lewandowski’s report of criminal threats made against him.

Sadus said searches were carried out at Kucharski’s home and offices.

Polish media reported last month that Kucharski demanded €20million (£18.1m) from Lewandowski for their past business cooperation, but the striker denies owing him money.

It is alleged that the money amounts to the share price of part of a joint company created in 2014 that was intended to manage the footballer’s future contracts. The company has since been closed. 

Kucharski, a former Poland national team player and a former lawmaker for the liberal opposition Civic Platform party, was Lewandowski’s manager in Poland for 10 years until 2018.

During his playing career, which ended in 2006, he played for Legia Warsaw across four different spells, Sporting Gijon and Swiss side FC Aarau.

An ex-striker, he also made 17 appearances for the national team, scoring three goals. 

Lewandowski, of course, has been slightly more prolific in front of goal, netting 63 goals in 114 games for Poland, while he is also the highest-scoring foreign player in Bundesliga history with an incredible 246 goals in 326 games for Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
