Hymns of praise for Lewandowski – “He makes the Camp Nou dream”
Spanish media celebrate Robert Lewandowski after scoring his first goal in his fourth game for FC Barcelona. However, the joy is somewhat clouded. It is still unclear whether the world footballer is eligible to play when the league starts.
Dthree games he had gone empty-handed. But now, as the Spanish newspaper El Mundo wrote, Robert Lewandowski’s curse has been broken. In the fourth game for FC Barcelona, the world player finally scored his first goal in the Catalans’ jersey. In the 6-0 win against the Mexicans from Pumas UNAM, the long-time Bayern pro opened the scoring before the end of the third minute of the game. After the goal, two assists and a very good performance on the Camp Nou debut, the Pole was showered with praise.
“He makes the Camp Nou dream,” wrote the specialist newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”. The spectators were repeatedly torn from their seats on Sunday evening, it said. Meanwhile, the competing newspaper “Sport” headlined a picture of the jubilant Lewandowski in large letters: “Spectacular”.
“Being able to play with Lewandowski is a luxury”
Barça’s king transfer was also honored as the best player in the match for the Joan Gamper Trophy after the final whistle. The soon to be 34-year-old professional hit it off brilliantly in front of the more than 83,000 enthusiastic spectators, especially with the young playmaker Pedri (19), the media found. The young Spain international explained: “Being able to play with Lewandowski is a luxury. It’s very easy to get along with a footballer like that.” Now they want to win a lot of titles.
The team with national goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen starts the Spanish league at home against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday evening. The only question is whether Lewandowski will then be allowed to play. The league has apparently refused the club to register the club’s additions, as reported by several media. The club is therefore apparently considering selling further rights to flush money into the coffers.
“I’m not worried about registration, I think everything is on track,” Lewandowski said succinctly at a press conference. Barça President Joan Laporta also gave hope in this regard. The club boss assured at a meeting with members of different Barcelona fan clubs that “all new signings can be registered”.
