Polish forward Robert Lewandowski, a 34-year old FC Barcelona striker, thinks that winning the La Liga title will be the first step in the team’s continued growth.
Lewandowski, who scored twice on Sunday to lead the team to a massive victory, did not hide his happiness.
“First of all, I feel very proud. I won the title in my first season in the La Liga, I think it’s a great feat. As a club, we are in a difficult process, we faced hard times so that trophy means a lot for the club. It’s a first step on the way to developing,” the forward said in an interview with Eleven Sports on Tuesday.
With four games remaining, Barcelona have a 14-point lead over second placed Real Madrid and Lewandowski is the leader of the La Liga top scorer’s classification with 21 goals, four more than Karim Benzema.
“For many of our players, it’s the first championship title in their careers. When you win the trophy, you earn additional confidence and a huge experience. It’s really important,” he stated.
