Poland skipper and former Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, 33, recently joined Spanish giant FC Barcelona with a view to earn more experience and win bigger trophies.
After a lot of negotiations, the Blaugranas finally convinced the German giant to sign Lewa but the forward’s previous experience with Pep Guardiola indicates that he would fit in the Catalan squad easily.
How did Guardiola influence Robert Lewandowski during their Munich days?
As of today, RL9 is blessed to have played under famous managers like Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and many others which gave him a lot of experience on how to deal with professional managers.
Successful Spanish manager Pep Guardiola, 51, is currently managing Premier League side Manchester City but spent a lot of time as a player and manager in Barcelona, followed by Bayern Munich which gave Robert Lewandowski a greater chance to directly interact with the coach.
The Polish striker is also famous for his adaptability since his Dortmund days, and he never felt tired of working with new managers, which is a good sign for the Barcelona fans.
As Lewandowski is now exploring the USA with his new team, FC Barcelona, he is expected to play his first game in a Barcelona jersey in a short time against archrival Real Madrid in an official club friendly.
In an interview with Barca TV, the newly recruited striker happily said, “I want to give a lot of joy to the Barcelona fans. I want to make them as happy as they have been, or even happier, because they support the team whether it’s going well or not at all.”
Apart from disclosing his emotions towards the Catalan fans, Lewandowski further told the interviewer about his notions for his new club by saying, “Since Pep coached me, I think it will be easier to adapt to Barcelona. I’m a person who loves to listen.”
