Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski is in his second season at the club, after arriving from Bayern Munich last year.

The 35-year-old had a good debut season, but his second season hasn’t started as planned.

The Pole international has admitted he isn’t as tenacious as he used to be, and is now more of a team player than one who wants to break all the records.

According to Lewandowski, he used to be a machine, but is human now.

He said: “Saudi Arabia? Now I don’t even think about that. I am super happy in Barcelona, in the team, in the city, with my family. As a person I am happy.

“Before Barcelona I was a bit of a machine, here I became more human. I have a two-year contract here with an option.

“Breaking records is no longer my main goal. The most important thing is to help my team win and enjoy the games. These are my last years in the world of football, two, maybe three. Don’t get me wrong: I still want to achieve success and score goals. But I am no longer as tenacious as before.”
