Bayern want the treble again, says Ribery

The ex-France winger is confident the reigning German champions have what it takes to go all the way in three competitions again


Bayern Munich attacker Franck Ribery says the club are targeting a repeat of their treble success two seasons ago this term.

The Allianz Arena side won the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB Pokal in 2013 under Jupp Heynckes and Ribery is desperate to do the same thing again with Pep Guardiola now in charge.

“I am dreaming of winning the treble again,” Ribery was quoted as saying by Bild.

“I will never forget how I felt after winning it in 2012-13. It was like we were flying. It’s a great feeling, it’s utter madness. I definitely want to have that feeling again at some stage of my career.”

Bayern missed out on the treble last term as Real Madrid proved to be too strong in the semi-finals of the Champions League, but Ribery says that defeat has helped improve the side.

“All the conditions are right to have another amazing season. The defeat against Real Madrid last term only made us stronger.”

Bayern currently lead the Bundesliga table with 45 points from 17 games and hold an 11-point lead over second-placed Wolfsburg.

Pep Guardiola’s men meet Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League round of 16, while Eintracht Braunschweig await in the DFB Pokal.
