Bayern Munich director of sport Matthias Sammer has revealed that the club are aiming to win five titles this season.
The Bavarian giants completed a historic treble last term, winning the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Champions League under the guidance of Jupp Heynckes.
The German boss has since retired from management, with former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola handed the difficult task of following him into the Bayern dug-out.
And the Spaniard’s superiors have already set him the challenging target of eclipsing his predecessor’s achievements by also lifting the European Super Cup and Club World Cup this time around.
“We want to achieve something that has not been done in Europe before,” Sammer told Sport Bild magazine. “We want to go after the treble again and on top of that we want the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.”
Sammer also insisted that the hunger among the Bayern squad has not been sated by their unprecedented success in 2012-13.
“We want to become even stronger,” he added. “That is why I do not understand any discussions about being satisfied.
“It’s about pulling up our sleeves and getting to work. Everything starts from scratch. If we do not show ambition and willpower then we are not worthy of working for Bayern.
“Everyone has to ask themselves every day if they bring this willingness with them.”
