Lewandowski denies ‘just wants to win Ballon D’Or with Barcelona

Robert Lewandowski is enjoying life at Barcelona. The striker has been involved in 22 goals so far this season. After not winning the Ballon D’or in 2020 some reports claimed the striker had joined Barcelona to win the prestigious award.

Barcelona are out of the Champions League after failing to qualify for the round of 16. However, the Blaugrana are doing good in La Liga sitting one point behind table toppers Real Madrid.

Speaking to La Vanguardia, via Barcelona Universal the striker denied the fact that he joined Barcelona just to win the Ballon d’Or.

He said,

“An award but it’s not something you think about every day. I didn’t come to Barcelona to win it, as some have said, is a lie. I don’t have the idea of the Ballon d’Or in my head, I have achieved everything I ever wanted and I have it in my heart.”

He further added on why he joined Barcelona,

“I’m in the right place even though I know the first season won’t be easy. But it was a huge challenge for me, sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone and take on new challenges in life. I am happy because I am experiencing new things as a footballer and as a human being.”

“I had a wish in my heart. When I was young, I watched Barcelona matches on TV and remember how they played and the players they had. They were great names and for a young man it is something that stays in your head forever.”
