The 33-year-old made his official league debut last weekend during a La Liga game against Rayo Vallecano after moving from Bayern Munich to Barcelona in the summer.
At the end of the previous season, he admitted he wanted to leave Bayern Munich. After several weeks of negotiations, he ended up moving on.
After Barça’s trophy-less campaign the previous season, Lewandowski says he is now keen to help the club win titles and feels it will advance his career.

The forward gave his reasons for choosing the Spanish powerhouses in an interview with Diario Sport.
“I think it’s been too long for Barcelona without winning titles, I’m sure we’re going to win them. When I first learned that Barcelona were interested in bringing me to the club, I thought it was the perfect moment, for me and the club. In the Bundesliga, it went well, it was a great experience for me, but I knew it was a step forward for my career to go to La Liga.” – he said.
Lewandowski joined Xavi’s new squad to help the club out, so it’s apparent that the goalless draw in his season debut against Rayo Vallecano wasn’t what he had hoped for.
“I didn’t want to play all my life in one league. Bundesliga was nice, I felt good there. But I knew it was time to move to La Liga and take a step forward in my career.” – He added
When Lewandowski heads to the Estadio Anoeta on Sunday to take on Real Sociedad, he will undoubtedly be hoping for a better outcome.
