Xavi Hernandez has been keeping in his speech since he was chosen as coach of FC Barcelona, which is not only important getting the victory, but also the way in which it is achieved. Robert Lewandowski, who seems to be a rather pragmatic man, has contradicted his coach in the last interview granted to his colleagues at La Vanguardia.
“In football, sometimes, you have to know how to win and not how to play to win“, points out Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker even dares to point out what things he would bring from Bayern to FC Barcelona to improve the club’s situation: “What would incorporate from Bayern is stability“.
“We are in a reconstruction process that needs time”
Forward Robert Lewandowski recalled that the Barcelona this “in a reconstruction process that needs time” and he was convinced that with “patience” the Barça club “will even be the best again”.
In an interview with the newspaper La Vanguardia, the Polish footballer said that the “stumbles” against Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in the Champions League “will make a squad grow” “with many young people who need to gain experience and learn to find a way to win these types of games.
“Obviously, I’m not happy. Barça should be in the last 16 (of the Champions League), but before coming to Barcelona I was already aware that the first season could be harder than it surely should. We are in a reconstruction process that needs time, we have to be more patient”, he pointed out.
“They have been complex moments because we have had to play several games without five or six players. Especially important have been the casualties in defense, and that has made us lose that stability. We were growing as a team and we stopped suddenly,” he said. “With everything that Barça has suffered in recent years, you can’t expect everything to change in a month. It needs time and I’m sure it will improve, and will even be the best again,” he said.
