Robert Lewandowski calls La Liga 'unattractive' and knows the reason why
| Last updated
Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski has called out La Liga during a live stream interview with Polish outlet Meczyski.
La Blaugrana's manager, Xavi Hernandez, has recently served a two-match ban after he lashed out at officials during his side's 0-0 draw with Getafe.
"I didn't expect Spanish league teams to be this reluctant to play football."
Lewandowski opened his account for the season with a game-winning tap-in against Villarreal last weekend, after 16-year-old wonderkid Lamine Yamal hit the post and the Polish striker reacted quickest to the rebound.
Speaking about the electrifying youngster, the 35-year-old was full of praise but also stated that football should: "Let him be a youngster first".
"How many players started that young and were still strong in their thirties?"
The ex-Bayern marksman is still performing at the highest level, though his numbers are not living up to what it was prior to the 2022 World Cup, when he bagged 18 goals in just 19 games following his transfer.
His dip in form has let to reports that Barca will try to sell their no.9 for around €40 million next summer, with a Saudi Pro League club already submitting a bid at that amount earlier this week, according to SPORT.
Following the reveal of his decision to retire from the Poland national team before the 2024 Euros, Lewandowski said that: "Sometimes in football, the last 15 minutes are the hardest for a player.
"That's when the fatigue comes into play, and you have to put in the most effort to stay at the same level."
Lewandowski and Barcelona are set to play Osasuna on Sunday, the last fixture before the two week long international break.
