“I’m very happy and proud, I’m sure next year will be very good,” said the Pole, who thanked his former Bayern Munich teammates for winning the award.
The Barça striker also remembered his current Barcelona teammates, to whom he assured that “we are on the right track”.
“Games like yesterday in Pamplona (2-1 against Osasuna) or Valencia (1-0) are big steps, not only to be first in the League but to aspire to win it,” he said.
Lewandowski scored 35 goals for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last season, surpassing the 28 goals of Paris Saint-Germain’s Frenchman Kylian Mbappé and the 27 of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Lazio’s Ciro Immobile.
The Polish striker repeats as the top scorer in the European leagues after winning the award last year, after scoring 41 goals in the 2020-2021 season.
Lewandowski, who arrived in Barcelona on July 19 for the next five seasons from Bayern, is already at the top of the scoring charts in the Spanish championship.
The Pole has 13 goals in LaLiga, far from the 8 goals of the Betis striker, Borja Iglesias, and the 7 of Iago Aspas (Celta), José Luis Mato Sanmartín (Espanyol) and Vedat Muriqui (Mallorca).
To those goals in LaLiga are added the 5 he scored in the Champions League, where he will not be able to continue scoring after Barça was eliminated from the top European club competition.
“In the Champions League we made some mistakes and in the Champions League if you make those mistakes, they can leave you out and we’re out. It wasn’t an easy time for the club, even now it’s not the best time, but we have to think positive, we have to look forward, in LaLiga we are playing very well”, affirmed Lewandowski.
“In the coming months we will play better as a team, in a month or a week you can’t change everything, but we are on the right track,” added the Polish striker.
