Robben: Bayern Must Show Champions League Ambition

Bayern Munich is set to take on Manchester City in a Group E champions league encounter on Wednesday evening and winger, Arjen Robben believes he and his team mates should have their eyes on the European trophy come May.

Bayern Munich was knocked out at the semi-final stage of last season’s Champions League and Robben hopes they go a step better this time:

“Bayern Munich should be aiming for the Champions League final again.” 

“You always have to be careful and make sure you don’t get arrogant, but you must have that ambition with the team Bayern have.

“You simply don’t start your European campaign with the ambition to make it to the quarter-finals or perhaps a bit further.

“Of course, it’s extra special because the final is in Berlin. That stadium suits us quite well. I won three out of four DFB-Pokal finals there.

“The further you go into the competition, the closer you get to the final, but I still enjoy the games in the group stages as well. It’s something completely different with the Champions League hymn and the evening games”, the Dutch winger told Sport/Voetbalmagazine.
