After FC Barcelona´s heavy Champions League elimination last Wednesday, Robert Lewandowski has opened himself to La Vanguardia in an interview in which the Polish striker speaks on his decision to join Los Blaugranas, the unexpected Champions League elimination, and the evolution of the current Barcelona squad.
34-year-old Robert Lewandowski has been one of Europe´s deadliest strikers of the past decade. Barcelona´s new number nine has been at the top of his game since he joined Bayern Munich in 2014 from rivals Borussia Dortmund. Two hundred thirty-eight goals and 19 trophies later, the striker made a bold move to the Catalan capital this past summer for a reported fee of 50 million euros with add-ons.
Despite his age, Robert Lewandowski continues to do what he does best. 18 goals in 17 games for FC Barcelona with no signs of slowing down. The Polish International is happy in the beautiful city of Barcelona; despite downgrading to the UEFA Europa League this season, ¨Lewa¨ does not regret his decision to become a Culer.
"¨ I am at the club that I love and when you feel comfortable and happy everything is easier. I am playing for the club of my dreams and I am proud of that. ¨Lewandowski on his move to Barcelona"
Our leading man up top also spoke about our recent UEFA Champions League elimination and emphasized being patient and giving the club time to get back to where it was, in addition to his awareness of a potentially difficult first season at the club.
"¨ Barca should be in the Round of 16… In football sometimes we have to learn how to win and not how to play to win, and that is what happened to us. However, I think these situations will make us stronger. Before arriving to Barcelona, I was aware that my first season could be tougher than what others expected it to be. We are currently in a process of reconstruction that needs time, we have to be more patient. ¨Lewandowski on UCL exit and expecations on his first season for the club"
Despite recent UEFA Champions League disappointment, Lewandowksi remains happy at Barcelona and has shown signs of future commitment to the club in such complex financial times. His run of form this season says it all. Lewandowski is here to stay, and with more titles to challenge for this season, who says Lewandowski´s first season as a Culer cannot end on a high?
