The Polish striker is the star arrival at Camp Nou this summer – but the club have been unable to sell bands bearing his name for some bizarre reason.
Good news for Barcelona fans – the club shop has been restocked with Robert Lewandowski jerseys and you can get your hands on them after an excruciating wait.
The Polish striker has been the marquee signing for the Blaugrana this summer transfer window and, unsurprisingly, demand for his shirt has already peaked.
However, the Nike store at the Camp Nou was previously out of stock – as they didn’t have the letter W to put on their strips for the fans!
‘Lewandowski’ – the W problem solved
Lewandowski has two ‘w’s in his name, which surprised the outlet.
In a video posted on Instagram, a store employee was seen explaining to a fan the reason for the crisis.
“We don’t have the letters ‘W’. And because he has two ‘W’s in his name, we’re running out (of stock),” he said.
However, in a video released by the club on Wednesday, they revealed the letter ‘W’ had been restocked and were once again selling shirts with Lewandowski printed on the back.
When will Lewandowski make his Barcelona debut?
Barcelona approved the signing of Lewandowski on Tuesday hours before their pre-season friendly with Inter Miami.
He took part in the warm-up with his new teammates but did not make his debut.
The Catalan club will return to action on Sunday against bitter rivals Real Madrid and it’s likely that Xavi will use Lewandowski that day.
