Lewandowski's ex-agent arrested in Poland for extorting him

The former agent of the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, Cezary Kucharszky., was arrested in Poland for “punishable threats” to the forward of the Bayern Munich to try to force the payment of 20 million euros, reported the prosecution of Warsaw this Tuesday.

Threats to obtain payment make up the crime of extortion. Kucharsky's house has been searched by the police.

Lewandowski is being treated as a victim in the investigation and there is no summary against him.

“The monetary demands had no basis in the contractual relations between the two,” explained a spokesman for the prosecution.

According to the magazine “Der Spiegel”, Lewandowski had filed a complaint against Kucharski, which would have demanded a payment in exchange for not making public certain private information about the player.

Kucharski was one of Lewandowski's representatives between 2008 and 2018 and was key in his arrival at Borussia Dortmund, from where he later moved on to Bayern.

Before the complaint against him, according to the same publication, Kucharski had accused the player and his wife Anna Lewandowski of having used company money they had in common for private matters such as financing luxury travel.
