Robert Lewandowski has vowed great things are on the horizon for Barcelona, believing the Blaugrana have waited “too long” for silverware.
The forward, who completed his €50m move from Bayern Munich last month, made his debut for the Catalan giants against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.
Although he failed to find the net in the goalless draw at the Camp Nou, the Poland captain was ruled out by VAR and also hit the woodwork.
Barca are looking to regain the LaLiga title this season, having last lifted the crown in 2018-19, while finishing 13 points behind eventual winners Real Madrid last term.
Meanwhile, it is now 16 months since the Blaugrana last tasted silverware; Lionel Messi’s brace inspired them to a 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the 2021 Copa del Rey final.
But Lewandowski is convinced that it is only a matter of time before the wait is over.
“I think it’s been too long for Barcelona without winning titles,” he was quoted as saying in Marca. “I’m sure we’ll win them.
“When I first knew that Barcelona were interested in bringing me to the club, I always thought it was the perfect time for me and for the club.
“I didn’t want to play in one league all my life. Everything went well in the Bundesliga, it was a good experience for me, but I knew it was the next step in my career to go to LaLiga.”
Lewandowski will be hoping to open his Barca goalscoring account when Xavi’s side travel to Real Sociedad on Sunday.
