Dante keen for trophies with Bayern

Bayern Munich centre-back Dante says his main motivation for signing with the club was the chance to win silverware.

The former Borussia Moenchengladbach defender made the move to Bayern for a fee of 4.7 million euros at the end of last season, after he played a big part in Gladbach’s successful 2011/12 campaign where they finished fourth in the Bundesliga.

Having never lifted a major trophy during his career, the 29-year-old used to dream about it prior to his transfer to Jupp Heynckes’ side.

“Between the (contract) offer and my signature, I thought about it all the time,” he told Bild.

“Since my first day at Bayern I stopped dreaming. Now I just want to concentrate on the next match and win. But the desire for titles was the main motivation to come here.”

He went on to talk about his relationship with compatriot and former Bayern defender Breno, who was recently sentenced to three years and nine months in jail for arson.

“We would like to (visit him in prison) as well, but it is very difficult since visiting hours are limited and his wife comes first. We pray for him, hoping that he is doing relatively well and that one day he can play football again,” Dante said.
