“The Body” Statement on the Ban

During an interview with Sport, Lewandowski “It’s challenging because, in my opinion, three games are too much for what I accomplished. Because of that, it hurts to be unable to play three games.” The Pole later acknowledged that I directed the gesture towards Xavi, the head coach of the Blaugrana.

“With the referee, nothing occurred. The referee had nothing to do with the fact that they gave me three matches. Concerning the coach and me, that is. I can only say that. I spoke with Xavi a few weeks prior, and he advised me to be cautious if the referee issued me a yellow card, Lewandowski continued”.

“That was merely a gesture used to indicate his inability to comprehend what was taking place. It was a topic that Xavi and I had previously discussed. Nothing made sense to me, Lewandowski continued. In the meantime, he had this to say about his time at Barcelona: “I will continue at Barcelona as long as I am in shape and hungry for titles. The champion’s mentality is what we must possess.
