Recently, Lewandowski received his second European Golden Boot Award. During this period, he accepted an interview with Turkish media fanatik and talked about the upcoming World Cup, Golden Boot Awards and other topics.
What it means to win the European Golden Boot for the second time
“Of course it means a lot because I know how difficult it is to score that many goals and I’m happy and proud to have won the European Golden Boot again, but it’s not just me doing it, it’s the club’s goal .”
Are you planning to win the award for the third time this season?
“I never think about it, I’m not going to focus on scoring goals to win this trophy, my goal has always been to help the team as much as I can, a lot of people judge my performance by whether I score or not, but that doesn’t work. In all cases, my movement off the ball is also important, when I came to Barcelona, I realized that the style of play here is different from Bayern, I want to adapt here and prove that my contribution is not only goals.”
upcoming world cup
“It’s new for everyone, a mid-season World Cup will be difficult, but I’m personally prepared for it, it’s also difficult for the team because of the lack of time to prepare, it’s difficult. It’s a challenge, but no matter what, the players have to give their best.”
Can Barcelona return to the top in the next few years?
“In these few months you can even see the improvement of the team, the beginning of next season, we can play better, more consistent. In football, you can win a lot of games in a short period of time. We have a lot Injury problems, which affect the stability of the team, especially in the Champions League.”
World Cup Poland and Argentina in the same group
“I think Argentina with Messi are the favourites, they’ve gone 30 games without losing, you can see from Argentina’s games that they’re a very good team, a disciplined, goal-oriented team. A consistent team.”
