Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski has revealed that playing in the Spanish League is more technical than the Bundesliga.

In an interview with Kwartalnik Sportowy, Lewandowski said that leaving Bayern Munich for Barca has rejuvenated him.

“In Spain, technical plays are more appreciated. In Germany, the focus is always on order, intensity and winning games. Here, every little technical trick or dribble is valued.”

This transfer has been a “breath of fresh air that will help me not to feel tired in the coming years.

“When I saw how determined they were to sign me, I knew that this transfer was much more realistic than any of my previous links with Madrid.

“Living in Spain and playing in LaLiga was always a dream, not only in sporting terms but also in personal life.

“It’s not as bad as I expected, people respect my privacy. Of course, Barcelona is a tourist place, during the season there are many visitors, so this could change. We are an active family, we like to walk.”

Style of play

Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, and is considered by many to be one of the greatest centre-forwards of all time. An accurate and efficient finisher with his head and both feet, Lewandowski is a prolific goalscorer, which has led him to be dubbed Lewangoalski. A well-rounded forward, he is said to possess almost all the necessary qualities of a traditional number nine: height, strength, balance, pace, intelligent movement and proficiency with both feet.

Although he primarily operates as a goal-poacher in the penalty area, due to his positional sense, ability to shoot first time, strength in the air, and powerful shot with either foot, his excellent technical skills, quick feet, proficient dribbling, vision, and physique also enable him to hold up the ball with his back to goal and either bring his teammates into play, or win fouls for his team in useful positions; despite often functioning as a lone-centre forward or as an out-and-out striker.
