It’s no secret to anyone when you see the image of Robert Lewandowski how happy he is to not only reach LaLiga, but to land at FC Barcelona. The Pole has already begun to show his talent in the friendlies played, despite not yet having scored a goal as a Barça player.
Robert Lewandowski fulfilled his dream of playing in the rented Spanish club, and what better way to wear the shirt of the Catalans under the orders of Xavi Hernández, a badge of the Catalan team. The Pole knows why he wanted to come to Barcelona, and the answer is simple. He welcomes the possibility of keeping a Ballon d’Or.
LaLiga has been that competition that generally receives in one of its players the award of the best footballer in the world. Lionel Messi, Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo have been awarded and by coincidence, the three worked in Spain, still with the Croatian in the ranks of Real Madrid. Lewandowski knows that this change of scene can give him the opportunity to keep that distinction.
When the option of joining FC Barcelona came, Robert Lewandowski did not think twice and started the novel with the Pole and the Catalan club for the former Bayern Munich. Before, it was Real Madrid who followed in his footsteps under the technical direction of an idol of Lewandowski like Zinedine Zidane.
And it is that the striker was honest in an interview with ESPN when they put him to decide between a former Real Madrid and a former Barcelona as the footballer with whom he wanted to play. His response was the following, ‘I choose Zidane. I could choose Herny, but maybe I’m going to need more assists and that’s why I choose Zidane’. It surprises without a doubt, being the culé rival.
Times have changed and without Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo at FC Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively, a new exciting story is coming between Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema. A new one with the desire to win everything, another one that over time has established itself in the best way in the Madrid team and that has been enchanting football lovers.
Thus, the Pole did not doubt that he always wanted to play in LaLiga, and also praised his colleague, Karim Benzema, ‘he is an incredible player as he showed in the last season of the Champions League. I don’t want to compare myself with him because for me it will be a new challenge, while he is many years old and already showed in the last year how good he is’. A Clásico that will paralyze the world again on October 16 at the Santiago Bernabéu.
