The Polish striker discusses a number of topics about Barça in an interview with the Spanish newspaper, Marca
Barça's striker, Robert Lewandowski, discusses a wide range of topics in an interview with the Spanish newspaper, Marca. Here are some quotes about from the prolific number 9 about his time at Barça so far:
The team's progress
"I think that even in the few months at Barça you can see the progress. Even at the beginning of next year we can start to show how we can perform better and in a few months we can grow as a team. For sure next season will be much better, with more stability". "If you lose stability in a game like the Champions League, at this level it's difficult to achieve more". "We lost so many players over the weeks and in important positions too". "If you have to play more than one or two games with the new players and the new system, it's not so easy. I know we learned a lot, it was huge experience for us, and I hope we can learn from this situation for the future".
Rebuilding the team
"I knew that in the first season when I came to Barcelona that we can't be thinking that we are going to win everything, we are going to win the Champions League. This team is still rebuilding and it needs time, this is the process. Of course, we should be playing in the next round after the group stage, but I think we've learned a lot, we gained a lot of experience because we have a lot of young players, and this meant we made a few mistakes. At this level, you have to always be ready, it doesn't matter how well you are playing, how many chances you have, you have to know how to win. It doesn't matter how well or badly you are playing, in the end, the three points are more important than the style or performance".
Playing with Messi?
"I don't know if you've seen how Messi can play passes for strikers. If you think about Leo Messi, it's brilliant to get this kind of pass, to get this connection between him and the striker, because he has great vision, he knows how to play the ball into the box behind the line, and he is one of the best, if not the best, at playing that way. I don't know what might happen, but playing as a striker with Leo Messi in the team is a dream for sure".
