Lewandowski, big clash in the locker room!


By: Manu Tournoux

The tone rose on Wednesday at half-time of the match against Almeira between Robert Lewandowski and Xavi.

Barça came very close to another disappointment on Wednesday against Almeira. Already left behind by Real Madrid and Girona at the top of La Liga, the Blaugrana had to work hard until the final moments of the match to finally win 3-2 and thus stay seven points behind their Madrid rivals.

The Catalans can thank their captain, Sergi Roberto, who scored twice in the second half. Robert Lewandowski, on the other hand, was much more discreet, going a third match without scoring. And the Pole’s performance was obviously not to the taste of his trainer. According to AS, Xavi severely reframed his attacker at half-time of the match.

“Robert, start running, dammit.”, he would have told her in front of the whole group. An attack that the former Bavarian would have taken very badly even if he was careful not to respond. This clash comes as rumors recently suggested a possible departure of Robert Lewandowski next summer. Author of only eight goals in La Liga and still silent in the Champions League, the native of Warsaw would no longer be in the odor of sanctity in Catalonia and the Barcelona leaders would be ready to sacrifice him to allow the arrival of Bruno Guimaraes, made a priority by Xavi and for which it will be necessary to pay at least 100 million euros.

These rumors were nevertheless denied by Robert Lewandowski’s entourage, his wife assuring that she wanted to stay in Catalonia for many years and his agent affirming that a departure was not on the agenda.
