Apparently, Lewandowski’s scoring record does not impress his manager, Pep Guardiola, who he says still demands more from him, than just goals.
The Poland international has been impressive in the Bundesliga, netting 12 goals in eight matches for the club. While, for both club and country, he has an impressive 22 goals in 16 matches.
It seems Guardiola is not all that interested or impressed in Lewandowski’s marksmanship, but demands the forward improve in other aspects.
“I don’t think the coach approaches me differently when I score more goals. It’s the same. I’m sure he is happy with my goals, but he also wants me to play good football and help my team-mates,” the 27-year-old told Uefa’s official website.
“I know that I don’t have to score in every single game for the coach to be happy with my performance. Sometimes my movements on the pitch are more important for him, like how I exploit the space and how I perform overall.
“Goals not only help me, but the whole team. They’re something the coach doesn’t just expect from me. I am not a striker who is only waiting in the penalty box to score a goal. I move, make passes and look for opportunities for others.”
