In a recent interview with the Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’, the goalscorer of the FC Barcelona, Robert Lewandowskiwas able to elaborate on what he expects from this second half of the season, the challenges that lie ahead and, of course, the World Cup that he managed to win Lionel Messiidol of the Catalan club.
Lewandowski knows that from now on he cannot be out of tune. Although Barcelona (34 pts.) is first in the table, Real Madrid (32 pts.) is lurking, hot on its heels. Since his arrival in Barcelona, the Pole has been decisive for the scheme of play proposed by Xavi and has established himself as the ‘pichichi’ of LaLiga with 13 goals in 14 dates.
“We have a few weeks to prepare for the next game. I will have two more weeks, but the rest of the season will be very hard with a very long calendar. We start on December 31 and the last game will already be in June. We will have a lot of games but we have to be prepared for this kind of difficult road”, declared the 34-year-old striker.
In addition, the former Bayer Munich player was encouraged to name ‘La Pulga’ as the favorite to win the Ballon d’Or 2023. “Of course. There is perhaps one more player who plays for the same club but there is only one World Cup that decides who is going to win it this season and Leo is now in the first position for sure because of what he has achieved, which means everything to him”, he assured. .
In recent days it has been rumored about the return of ‘Leo’ to Barcelona; however, many consider that it is still a very distant possibility. When asked if he would like to play with the world champion, ‘Lewy’ confessed that “any striker would dream of playing alongside him”.
“We see that now he plays more like a ‘playmaker’, maybe he scores fewer goals and gives more passes to his teammates although he continues to score them. But compared to other times, he is now the footballer with whom any striker would dream of playing alongside him, ”said the goalscorer.
Let’s remember that during Argentina vs Poland, Lewandowski and Messi had a mishap on the pitch, however, they were caught having a pleasant conversation at the end of the game.
