Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has been full of praise for summer signing Robert Lewandowski after seeing the striker make a prolific start to life at the Camp Nou
Lewandowski has scored eight times in just five games for the Catalan giants following his transfer from Bayern Munich. Xavi was asked about the Poland international at a news conference and made it clear how much he’s enjoying coaching the attacker, as reported by Diario AS.
I wouldn’t change him for the world,” he explained. “He helps the young players a lot with his advice and his humility. He does us a lot of good.”
Lewandowski has started all of Barcelona’s matches so far in 2022-23, but Xavi was not ruling out resting the Poland international for the team’s next game against Cadiz in La Liga on Saturday, September 10.
“Tomorrow we will decide. Many things will influence the decision, but he is very important,” the coach added.
Barcelona head to Cadiz and will be expected to beat Sergio Gonzalez’s side. However, Cadiz have a good record against the Catalans and are unbeaten in their last four meetings in La Liga.
Barcelona Out For Revenge
Xavi did speak about Saturday’s opponents and admitted it will be a tough test, particularly as Cadiz are yet to score or even take a point from their first four matches of the season.
The Barcelona boss thinks the team’s disappointing start to the campaign will add to the hosts’ motivation on Saturday at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.
