Bayern Munich celebrated winning an eighth consecutive Bundesliga on the weekend and Uli Hoeness claims there could be more successful on the way.
Bayern Munich may be set to match their 2012-13 Treble this season, according to former club president Uli Hoeness.
With a 4-0 win, Hansi Flick ‘s side rounded off their Bundesliga campaign at Wolfsburg on the weekend, over Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table, leaving them with a final 13-point advantage.
When the club swept the board, Bayern’s eighth consecutive success Last season was in Germany’s top flight. Under Jupp Heynckes in 2012-13, a streak began by also picking up the DFB-Pokal and the Champions League. They face Bayer Leverkusen in this season’s Pokal final Saturday, although a 3-0 lead over Chelsea leaves them handily positioned in the Champions League for the second leg of their last-16 tie.
Hoeness told Blickpunkt Sport: “If this shape can be maintained by our team we have a good chance to win anything. I hope the team will be able to maintain the pace. To score 100 goals in a season at the Bundesliga is something very special. It’s a sensational achievement.”
Hoeness balked at the idea that Bayern’s supremacy was an unsustainable state of affairs for German soccer, calling on his competitors to do more.
He said: “More effort must be made by the others. You can’t expect only half a day of work from Bayern to make the Bundesliga more exciting.”
