Lewandowski: That was madness!

By September 23, 2015No Comments

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola was left lost for words after striker Robert Lewandowski netted five goals in only nine minutes.

Fresh on as a half-time substitute, the Poland international produced a stunning display against Wolfsburg to smash all Bundesliga records.

And the feat particularly resonated with Scots, with next month’s crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Poland at Hampden.

Lewandowski conceded that the nine-minute spell even took him by surprise.

“I’m obviously delighted. That was madness. It’s a massive evening for me,” he told the club’s official website.

“We were behind at half time. I wanted to go for it because we needed two goals.

“After the third or fourth goal I looked up at the video wall and was surprised there was so long left to play. The coach didn’t have to give me instructions. I knew what I had to do.”

There are not many things in football that Guardiola hasn’t experienced but the former Barcelona coach, who won 14 trophies in four years at Camp Nou, was even amazed by the display.

He said: “I’ve never experienced anything like it, either as a coach or a player.

“Five goals in nine minutes. I’m so happy for Robert. We didn’t play well for 45 minutes and then we score five in nine minutes. I can’t explain it.”
