Lewandowski ‘feels more chemistry’ with Xavi than he did with Julian Nagelsmann
Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski is enjoying life at Barcelona. Although it’s not to say that it was anything less at Bayern Munich, the Poland international is really liking the admiration he has received from the fans and his teammates in the first few months of his new journey.
It must be remembered that Lewandowski had to dig in his heels to secure a transfer to Barcelona away from Germany in the summer, as Die Roten were very reluctant to let him go.
At Barcelona, things have been pretty straightforward. The 34-year-old is being idolised by his teammates and his relationship with his manager, Xavi, is also greater than ever.
These claims come from journalist Toni Juanmarti, who also states that Lewandowski enjoys better chemistry with Xavi than he did with Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern Munich.
This is mainly because of the Barcelona manager and legend’s career as a footballer and the freedom he has received from him.
Being one of the team’s senior-most personnel, Lewandowski has total freedom of movement and the forward is appreciating the approach.
Now, the striker has indeed played under some big names like Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti but as it seems, Nagelsmann interfered in his processes more than he should have. With Xavi, it is no longer the case.
“Having him with us is a privilege. We have gone from choosing him on the ‘Play Station’ to playing with him,” a locker room source from FC Barcelona was quoted as saying.
Lewandowski will continue to be the leader of the young Barcelona squad and his routine of capitalising the free time is only instilling more discipline among others. Hopefully, for everyone, his tenure at Spotify Campn Nou will leave a lasting effect on the young guns in the team.
