Robert Lewandowski has enjoyed an excellent first season at Camp Nou, racking up over 30 goals and playing a crucial role in helping Barça secure the league title for the first time in 2019.

In a recent interview (h/t Tomasz Wlodarczyk), The Pole talked about his overall scoring tally this season, vowing Barcelona fans to improve himself in the second season.

“I’m proud of the season. Winning the league and Super Copa is a great achievement. This title tastes different than those won with Bayern. And I won 8 in a row. Here we are in the transition. We are building something new,” Lewandowski said.

“I would take it before it has started. It was a difficult one. With the World Cup in the middle of it. It was not a normal pre-season for me. I am sure I can do better in the second one,” he added.

Lewandowski is currently the highest scorer in La Liga this season with 22 goals to his name. The Pole could enjoy a greater creative service in his second season, with Lionel Messi in contention to return to Camp Nou.

Talking about Messi, Lewandowski said he would love to play with the Argentine international at Barça next season. “I want to play with Messi here in Barcelona. He has changed his style in recent years. It is easier to play with players who understand football as deeply as he does,” he said.

The attacker praised Messi’s evolving game in recent years, adding, “Messi’s playing style has evolved in recent years. He thinks differently, and positions himself differently on the pitch. He has a unique sense. We would definitely use it. Where will I put it on the pitch? You’ll have to ask Xavi about that.”

The Polish international also talked about Joshua Kimmich, who has been closely linked with a move to Barcelona lately.

When asked what he would do to convince Kimmich to come to Camp Nou, Lewandowski replied, “That it’s worth coming here, the life, club & the atmosphere – all different from Bayern. Of course, they’re 2 big clubs, but different in terms of life, language, experience & challenge.”
