Barcelona Unveils Lewandowski As New No. 9

Legendary Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski, has been unveiled to the Barcelona fans at the Camp Nou on Friday.

Lewandowski who moved to Barcelona from Bayern Munich in a deal worth €50 million (£42m/$51m) was handed with the No.9 jersey.

Recall Depay was given the jersey number at Camp Nou following his free transfer to the club last summer, but The European highest goal scorer has inherited the iconic jersey from Memphis Depay, who is taunted to leave Camp following a perceived low performance.

Lewandowski turns 34 later this month but dismissed any suggestion that his best years are behind him at his first press conference at Barca’s stadium on Thursday, even though he didn’t hit the net for the club in pre-season.

“I think my age is not important right now, it’s just a number. I feel better than when I was 29,” he said.

He added, “I know that Barcelona was not going through an easy time, but when I spoke with Joan and heard about the project and the way they wanted to follow, I thought that the best thing was to make the jump to Barcelona.”

He also spoke on the rivalry with La Liga champions Real Madrid.

“I’m not thinking about Real Madrid or Benzema, he’s an extraordinary striker, but for me, the most important thing is to win with Barcelona, not to beat him,” he said.
