The second newcomer to Munich on the podium quickly translated a journalist's question into French for his teammate.

Robert Lewandowski contributed three goals to make it 5-0 against Eintracht Frankfurt. The fact that the FC Bayern attacker now has ten goals in his personal account after just five match days is a new Bundesliga record - but one that doesn't mean too much to Lewandowski.

Robert Lewandowski has already set quite a few records. His four-pack for Borussia Dortmund, which he won in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid in 2013, will not be forgotten - as will his five Joker goals in September 2015 against VfL Wolfsburg.

Bizarre self-praise for someone who has since been forgotten: Jardel slanders Lewandowski

 Bizarre self-praise for someone who has since been forgotten: Jardel slanders Lewandowski In the mid-1990s, the name Mário Jardel appeared on the map of great football. The striker had his best times at FC Porto, becoming the league's top scorer four times and even Europe's top scorer of the year (Golden Boot) in the 1998/99 season. That may have gone to the head of today's 47-year-old. © Provided by 90min An ego bigger than himself: Mário Jardel | VANINA LUCCHESI / Getty Images Because there is no other way to explain his latest statements.

Now the 32-year-old has set the next record. Ten goals after just five game days, no player has achieved that in 57 years of the Bundesliga - until Lewandowski scored three times against Frankfurt on Saturday afternoon. First he was there with his left foot after a pass from Kingsley Coman, then headed for a corner from Joshua Kimmich - and finally with a right after a through pass from Douglas Costa.

"That's not a big problem for me." - Robert Lewandowski on his substitution in the 5-0 win against Frankfurt

It was a gala that Lewandowski put down on Saturday afternoon. The attacker still stood out from an already very convincing Bayern team. That coach Hansi Flick still replaced him after an hour? "That's not a big problem for me," said Lewandowski after the game on the Sky microphone, knowing full well that the next game in the Champions League will be on Tuesday at Lokomotiv Moscow.

So no time to enjoy the record? Does the next entry in the Bundesliga annals mean anything to him? Lewandowski didn't think twice, referred to the team and called the record "not so important". He knows: Bayern have big goals - a personal record in the first few weeks of the season is of secondary importance.
