Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski confident of stay next season


Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski has said he will remain at the LaLiga side next season and that they will win “many titles” going forward.

Lewandowski — who joined Barça from Bayern Munich in 2022 — has scored 58 goals in 94 games in all competitions since his arrival. He was key in helping them win their first league title since 2019 and the Spanish Super Cup in the 2022-23 season.

Despite a trophyless campaign this year, Lewandowski is keen to remain at Barça and is confident they can win silverware next term.

“Of course, for me it is super clear. I want to win many titles with Barcelona and I am sure that next season we will be even stronger and we will also win titles,” Lewandowski told Mundo Deportivo when asked about rumours of a potential exit from the Catalan club.

“I always want the best, not just for me, but for my teammates and I am sure that this team will win titles next season because I see what we do each day. For me that is what matters because this a club that I hold close to my heart and I want to give a lot for the team and the club.”

Barcelona’s season has been dominated by the uncertainty surrounding coach Xavi Hernández, as well as the financial issues the club face, with suggestions they could be forced to offload players to ease their problems.

There has been speculation that Lewandowski, who was runner-up for the 2021 Ballon d’Or, could be one of those players, but the 35-year-old has said he wants to stay at the club.

Barcelona face Sevilla in their final game of the season on Sunday, after which president Joan Laporta will meet Xavi to discuss the coach’s future.
