Robert Lewandowski speaks out about his retirement

Lewandowski is here to stay. The Pole is clear that his intention is to continue at Barça and compete at the highest level. At 35, he is not considering following in the footsteps of players like Toni Kroos, who has announced his retirement: “My heart will tell me that moment. Before making a decision, I first need to feel something.” Pressed on the matter, Lewandowski reiterated that “I don’t know when it will happen, it’s hard to determine for myself. I need to feel my decision to be sure about it and I don’t have that now.”

Lewandowski vindicated himself and does not see age as a handicap: “Physically I feel very good and that means I can’t think about retirement. Maybe Toni Kroos felt that moment, but that’s not my case.”

What’s more, the Pole believes he has a lot more to give. “I’m realizing that the hard work I’ve put in and continue to put in is paying off,” the footballer stressed.

His big goal

Robert Lewandowski is missing the European Championship. The Pole has switched his focus to his Polish national team, the big blot on his career. He has never had enough support to have a highly competitive team, as he himself has admitted. “I never had the feeling that we had the team to win a title,” said the footballer, who is nevertheless hoping to have a great tournament in Germany.

In this regard, Lewandowski indicated that the competition being played on German soil is a special motivation because “I spent many years in this country,” recalling his time at Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. “It’s a sentimental tournament, there’s a part of me in this country. There are a lot of memories. A great Euro awaits us.”

Poland made it to the European Championship in Germany through a hard-fought play-off and face a tough group in Germany, where they will play the Netherlands, Austria and France.
