Bayern Munich will not get ahead of themselves despite their record-breaking start to the Bundesliga, insists Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Jupp Heynckes’ men opened up a 12-point advantage over defending champions Borussia Dortmund on Saturday when Juergen Klopp’s side slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Schalke.
Last year’s Champions League finalists strolled past Fortuna Duesseldorf 5-0, but chairman Rummenigge has warned them against getting complacent.
“We have had a great start to the season, whilst Dortmund haven’t had the best of starts,” Rummenigge told the FIFA website.
“We have set a new record with eight wins in a row, but we won’t be celebrating with champagne yet.”
Dortmund recovered from a nine-point deficit last season to overcome Bayern but forward Thomas Mueller believes that Heynckes’ side should turn their attention to the likes of Schalke and Eintracht Frankfurt in the battle for the Bundesliga title.
“There are more teams than just Borussia Dortmund,” he told Sky Sports.
“We can be pleased that we have made such a good start to the season and we have learnt to concentrate only on ourselves.
“If we carry on playing like this, then it will be hard for any opponents to beat us.”
