Champions Bayern Munich squandered a two-goal lead to end their season with a 2-2 draw at VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, but more worrying was the confirmation that leading striker Robert Lewandowski said he wanted to leave the club.

With the Pole in the starting eleven after informing the club of his desire to leave and not extend his contract which ends next year, Bayern were in control from the start.

Josip Stanisic headed them ahead in the 17th minute, setting a new league record with the club’s 48th away goal in a season.

Lewandowski doubled his lead in what could have been his last game for Bayern in the 40th minute with his 35th league goal of the season and was crowned the Bundesliga’s top scorer for the fifth consecutive season.

Jonas Wind cut back for the host at the stroke of halftime and Max Kruse came on just before the hour mark to equalize when Bayern ran out of ideas.

Bayern had secured their 10th consecutive league title weeks earlier.
