Lewandowski wanted to end his international career.  This dissuaded him from this decision

Robert Lewandowski is currently the best Polish footballer. Even if he is out of shape, many cannot imagine international matches without him. The 35-year-old revealed that he once thought about ending his career in the national team. How is it now?

Robert Lewandowski became the Spanish champion and top scorer in LaLiga last season. This season, the captain of the Polish national team had trouble putting the ball in the net, which also affects the situation in the table. Recently, the 35-year-old broke through after 55 days without a goal in a league match.

Will Robert Lewandowski return to the Ekstraklasa?

Critics accused Lewandowski of no longer resembling the Bayern Munich player and that his form would decline. Therefore, there were speculations about his possible transfer to a weaker but well-paid league, e.g. in Saudi Arabia or the United States. Fortunately, the striker is slowly getting back into shape and scored a double in the last match against Celta Vigo.

The captain of the Polish national team was asked by “Przegląd Sportowy” journalists whether he could imagine ending his career in a Polish club. – I don’t think so. I would have to feel really physically weak and not be able to play at a higher level. And in this respect, everything is fine. I’m 35 years old, I can play at the highest level for several years, so I don’t think there will be room for a return to the Ekstraklasa, he said.

Robert Lewandowski on the end of his national team career: I have no such plans

The FC Barcelona striker also revealed that he does not intend to end his national team career for now. – As of today, I have no such plans. This means: I have not decided anything categorically and definitively. There was a moment when I thought about something like this, now I have postponed this decision – he revealed.

– This resulted in a significant improvement in the situation in the squad and within the team. After coach Probierz’s arrival, things are better. In the end, everything is decided by the results, but when they are not there and you are “suffocating” inside, the frustration and discouragement is double. I was overwhelmed, now more oxygen and fresh air came in, I revived. Sooner or later the results will come – I hope we are at the “faster” stage, he concluded.
