SportsTalk December 18 According to “World Sports News”, Barcelona believes that Lewandowski should appear more in the penalty area instead of retreating to the midfield.
Barcelona is internally analyzing Lewandowski’s situation. So far this season, Lewandowski has played in 6 out of 15 league games. Scored in 9 games and failed to score in 9 games; Lewandowski played in 5 games in the Champions League and failed to score in 4 games. In the 20 games he participated in, Lewandowski failed to score a goal in 13 games.
This has had an impact on the team’s performance. Barcelona knows that Lewandowski is beginning to be affected by age. At the age of 35, his physical fitness begins decline. For forwards, the impact is greater, and even if the speed is only a fraction of a second slower, the player’s performance will be affected.
Barcelona believes that Lewandowski should not indulge in what he did one or two years ago, but should adapt to the new reality. Lewandowski is seen as a finisher, a goalscorer, but he often leaves the penalty area and drops into midfield, which is not something he has to do. Everything is a process, and Barcelona hopes Lewandowski can appear in the penalty area more often because he will never lose his finishing instinct.
