The Polish striker was presented this Wednesday in Miami and will be available to play against Real Madrid
"I really want to win titles and conquer things with this great club. I will work hard on the pitch, it is incredible to be here », assured Robert Lewandowski at his debut as a Barça player. The Polish winger was presented in Miami with great expectation and will be available to make his debut as a Blaugrana in the Las Vegas Classic that Xavi's men will play against Real Madrid this Saturday.
Smile from ear to ear, as if it were a youth who goes up to play the preseason with the first team. This is how Lewandowski came on stage in Miami, with the new shirt of the culé club, to be presented as a Barça player. The joy of the Pole was only surpassed by the radiant sun of the east coast of the United States and by the happiness of a euphoric Joan Laporta with his new reinforcement.
“It has not been easy and we are very proud that you wanted to play with us. We need you, you are a star and we have great expectations. We want to make an increasingly competitive team and we are progressing very well, we put Barcelona back in the world“, Said the maximum president of the culé.
It was the high point of a 'low cost' presentation. Lewandowski posed in front of a 'photocall' with the club's sponsors and with a shirt without a number, waiting for the future of Memphis Depay, who currently wears number 9, to be resolved. The man from Warsaw was satisfied after the first days of making contact with the rest of his classmates and he launched even with his first jokes.
"My name is Robert, I'm from Poland and I live in Barcelona," he said in perfect Spanish as soon as he arrived. It was his business card before making clear once again his ambition for the future of the new project. “There is a lot of quality in the team and a lot of potential. I am in a good club, although we have a lot of work to do. In football it's important to want to win and I think I'm in the best place to do it. I hope to be able to score a lot of goals, it's my challenge," he said.
ready for classic
Lewandowski finished his presentation act and got down to work to prepare his first match as a Blaugrana footballer. The former Bayern Munich player can now train with the rest of the group and could even have his first minutes against Real Madrid if Xavi deems it appropriate. It would be a dream debut, one more step for a Barça that continues to work in the market and that hopes to close additions in the defensive field in the coming days.
