Barcelona player Lewandowski is the star player of the new team in the club. Since his big-money transfer from Bayern Munich, the Polish striker has been prolific with his performances. In doing so, the striker has proved his doubters wrong that he can be the best even when not playing in Bundesliga.
Since joining FC Barcelona, Lewandowski has scored 18 goals in 17 competitions. However, his performances were insufficient to keep them in the Champions League. They were disqualified last week after Inter Milan defeated Viktoria Pilsen and Bayern Munich beat Barcelona 3-0.
Barcelona player appears for an exclusive interview
Last Saturday in the Mestalla, FC Barcelona defeated Valencia by a score line of 1-0 thanks to Lewandowski’s stoppage time back post goal. They cut the distance to leaders Real Madrid, who on Sunday lost to Girona.
The Poland captain appeared for a lengthy interview with La Vanguardia, during which he covered a wide range of subjects, including the factors that drove him to choose Barcelona, Xavi’s position, president Joan Laporta, and La Liga competition with Real Madrid.
His views on the win against Valencia;
“Winning at Mestalla was very important. Scoring in the 92nd minute is a huge step forward for the team. It helps us understand that if we fight to the end, we can win matches. The league is very long, but these matches are necessary to look forward and fight for the title until the end.”
Regarding his adjustment in Barcelona;
“It was straightforward to adapt from day one. My first communication with my new colleagues was excellent. I tried to communicate with them both on and off the field. It’s a group of players with huge potential but also great people.”
“I’m in the club I want, and everything is easier when you feel relaxed and happy.”
He also commented on the decision to leave Bayern and join Barcelona:
“I’m in the right place even though I know the first season won’t be easy. But it was a huge challenge for me. Sometimes, you have to get out of your comfort zone and take on new challenges in life. I am happy because I am experiencing new things as a footballer and human being.”
“I had a wish in my heart. When I was young, I watched Barcelona matches on TV and remembered how they played and the players they had. They were great names, and it stays in your head forever for a young man.”
The Polish striker also expressed the atmosphere in Camp Nou and the love from Cules;
“From the first moment, I felt the support of everyone. I went to America in pre-season, spent time with the coaches, my teammates, and the fans, and I felt unbelievable things. Even though we were outside, they shouted my name in the stands, and it means a lot to me.”
“As soon as I got on the field, I felt something magical. All the history surrounding Camp Nou was floating in the air. Even if you’re tired, the support from the stands gives you the energy to win matches. It’s unbelievable.”
“Even with my age and experience, which has allowed me to experience many things in the world of football, I feel new things and emotions at Camp Nou.”
