Formalized on Tuesday, the arrival of Robert Lewandowski at FC Barcelona is arousing enormous enthusiasm among Blaugrana supporters. Many fans rushed to buy the flocked jersey bearing the name of the Polish striker. An enthusiasm that the Catalan club had obviously not expected.
FC Barcelona did not need Robert Lewandowski to outclass Inter Miami (6-0) in a friendly on Wednesday. The striker arrived from Bayern Munich was obviously absent, he whose transfer was not formalized until Tuesday, and who did not participate in any training with his teammates. It will therefore be necessary to wait before seeing the effects of his signature on the performance of the team. On the other hand, we can already say that the Pole meets expectations off the pitch.

His arrival provoked a huge enthusiasm among the supporters! After several difficult seasons and hard knocks like the departure of Lionel Messi, fans probably see Robert Lewandowski as the player capable of bringing Barça back to the top. This enthusiasm was soon felt in sales at the club’s official store near the Camp Nou. Requests for jerseys suddenly exploded. So much so that the letter “w” for flocking has fallen out of stock. A priori, the undesirable Martin Braithwaite is not at the origin of this setback…
Many supporters threw themselves on the jersey of Robert Lewandowski, whose flocking remains available in all the other shops and on the internet. Barça nevertheless assured Mundo Deportivo that the problem at the Camp Nou store would be resolved on Thursday. Note that the club sees the same madness on social networks. And especially on Instagram where videos involving the Polish international already have more than 116 million views! To believe that Barça has its new star.
