Robert Lewandowski claims he needed fresh start at Barcelona
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.
Lewandowski netted his first goal for the club, in front of the home fans, and laid on a pair of assists for Spanish star Pedri, and he is no doubt over the positivity of his move to Spain.
“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.”
