Robert Lewandowski has revealed his ongoing determination to succeed at Barcelona this season.

The Polish international eventually completed his move from Bayern Munich last month after a long running transfer saga between Bavaria and Catalonia.

Lewandowski quickly indicated his desire to leave the Allianz Arena ahead of the 2022/23 campaign despite still having 12 months left on his contract in Germany.

However, Barcelona eventually got their man, with Lewandowski agreeing a deal at the Camp Nou in until 2026.

The 33-year-old joined up with his new teammates during their preseason tour of the United States and played a starring role in their 6-0 Joan Gamper Trophy win over UNAM Pumas.

“It has been unbelievable [vs. Pumas], I didn’t expect so many fans to be here,” as per reports from Diario Sport.

“Such experiences as a player stay with you always.

“I needed this change, this move to another country and to another club. I feel like a child who has a new toy.”

Lewandowski is set to make his competitive debut this weekend as La Blaugrana kick off their La Liga campaign at home to Rayo Vallecano on August 13.
