“If Bayern let Robert Lewandowski go, Victor would be a good alternative,” Rohr told Sports Bild.

“I think he would prevail in Munich. Since he already has experience in the Bundesliga and speaks a little German, his adjustment period is, of course, shorter than with other players from abroad,” Rohr added.”
