The Germany international has urged his team-mates to keep working hard in order to win more silverware this campaign
Manuel Neuer has stressed that Bayern Munich realise they must keep working hard if they are to win silverware this term and has made it clear they will not take Tuesday’s Champions League game with CSKA Moscow lightly.
The Bundesliga champions started their European campaign with a 1-0 win over Manchester City, whereas CSKA were beaten 5-1 by Roma on matchday 1.
Nevertheless, Neuer has insisted the Russian giants could surprise Bayern if they are not fully focused.
“We understand that this is not just any old game, but this is the Champions League, which is always an important experience. We have come here to get three points and want to keep on winning,” Neuer said at a press conference.
“Its nice if the opposing head coach says that we are from another planet. We understand that we have had a lot of success, but we need to keep on working in order to achieve even greater success.
“We have three points already and we don’t intend to drop points against CSKA.
“We are really up for this game because we know there can always be surprises in the Champions League. Therefore we are taking this game very seriously.”
