Recently, it has given to know a list of the presumptive names of the players of which Xavi Hernández would want to do without face to the next course. Some of them have some logic, as Oriol Romeu and Marcos Alonso, those who had a paper almost testimonial in the picture culé this season. Nevertheless, one of the names that surprised when appearing in this 'smart black' was at all more and at all less than Robert Lewandowski.

The Pole had an acceptable season with the combined Catalan, since it was the maximum goleador of the team with 26 annotations, a considerably upper figure to the one of his nearer mates. However, when seeming, the technical body of the egarense valued an imminent reality marked by the fact that 'Lewy' is about to to fulfil 36 years, what indicates that it is time to to begin to think in a replacement that can offer better provision to physical level, especially regarding the pressure in the first line.

The another reason by which Xavi wanted to give off of Lewandowski

Nevertheless, now a new source adds another reason whereby the one of Terrassa wanted to dispense of the Polish forward. This reason would not be related only with his sportive performance, since as it explained Ricard Torquemada in 'The Third Temps' of the TDT of 'Catalonia Ràdio', the míster Catalan had reservations with regard to the attitude of the exjugador of the Borussia Dortmund to the youngsters that have surfaced with strength in the first team.

According to this source, when seeming, the native of Warsaw was not the sufficiently empathic with varied of the young talents that form part of the first team and that, in spite of his youth, have not had a lot of experience in the football of elite, being this his first adventure to professional level. In this sense, from the 'staff' of work of Xavi comprised that Lewandowski was demanding, since it is a veteran experienced and a big professional, but also considered that the 'youngsters' of the quarry needed understanding and empathy to keep growing.

In this point, the journalist clears that it is not that Robert had a negative attitude to the young players, neither much less, but it showed a distant and serious deal to them. This contrasted with the ideas of the technical body, those who constantly look for that the leaders of the changing room contribute to the training of these novel talents with his experience, leadership and authority, guiding them in his development. Therefore, this fault of vicinity by part of a big leader of the changing room like the Pole maybe was not seen like an attitude that was beneficial for the group.
