Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Youssouf Fofana’s “Little brother” interview!
Last summer, FC Barcelona decided to put the package on Robert Lewandowski to make him its flagship recruit. An arrival which obviously did the Blaugranas a lot of good, the Polish international having brought all his experience to a very rejuvenated locker room. Moreover, the former goleador of Bayern Munich revealed that he slipped valuable advice to Pedri and Gavi.
Lewandowski’s advice to Pedri and Gavi!
In remarks granted to ESPN, the top scorer in La Liga revealed what he recommends to his young teammates:
“To start, start learning English. If you want to be an international guy, you have to. I’m learning Spanish now and look how old I am. It’s easier to learn English. Football-wise, I tell them, ‘It doesn’t matter what you have achieved before. The most important thing is the next game and what you can achieve.’ I always say to Gavi and Pedri: “Scoring one goal is never enough, okay? Think we can score another one. If we score two goals then why can’t we score three?”
There is no doubt that this advice will do good in particular to Pedri, who is often criticized for a lack of risk-taking in the last gesture.
To sum up
Robert Lewandowski, the FC Barcelona striker, revealed that he slipped some advice to Pedri and Gavi. And he advised them in particular to learn English, essential according to him to become an internationally renowned footballer.
