Bayern manager reveals chat with Lewandowski before Dusseldorf win

Robert Lewandowski had faced Fortuna Dusseldorf five times without scoring before his brace yesterday, which helped his Bayern Munich side to a 5-0 win.

Before the match, his manager Hansi Flick spoke to him, and he has now revealed how he had tried to inspire the striker, who moved onto 43 goals in all competitions this season with the two goals.

"I told Robert Lewandowski that I was surprised to hear at the press conference that he had not yet scored a goal against Fortuna Dusseldorf and that he should change that as soon as possible," he told a news conference.

"And of course he did."

With the goals against Dusseldorf, Lewandowski has now scored against all the teams in the Bundesliga this season as he targets the European golden boot this season.

This is a new record.

Bayern's win saw them move 10 points clear at the top as they near an eighth straight league title.

The Die Roten have netted 86 goals in 29 Bundesliga games this season.
