Lewandowski Unveiled As Barcelona No. 9
Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski, has been unveiled to the Barcelona fans at Camp Nou on Friday.
The European highest goal scorer has inherited the iconic jersey from Memphis Depay, who has been linked with a Camp Nou exit following Lewandowski’s transfer. Lewandowski was presented as Barcelona’s new No.9 following his €50 million transfer from Bayern Munich.
“I think my age is not important right now, it’s just a number. I feel better than when I was 29,” he said.
He added, “I know that Barcelona was not going through an easy time, but when I spoke with Joan and heard about the project and the way they wanted to follow, I thought that the best thing was to make the jump to Barcelona.”
“I’m not thinking about Real Madrid or Benzema, he’s an extraordinary striker, but for me, the most important thing is to win with Barcelona, not to beat him,”. He also spoke on the rivalry with La Liga champions Real Madrid.
