We have a good chance of winning the Treble says Munich former club president

Bayern Munich celebrated winning an eighth consecutive Bundesliga and Uli Hoeness at the weekend and believes there could be more success on the way.

Bayern Munich may be poised to equal their 2012-13 Treble this season, according to former club president Uli Hoeness.

Leaving at the top of the table with a final 13-point lead over Borussia Dortmund, Hansi Flick’s side rounded off their Bundesliga campaign with a 4-0 victory on the weekend at Wolfsburg.

Last season was the eighth consecutive success of Bayern in Germany’s top flight – a streak that started in 2012-13 under Jupp Heynckes when the club swept the board by also picking up the DFB-Pokal and the Champions League.

In Saturday’s Pokal final this season, they are facing Bayer Leverkusen, although a 3-0 lead over Chelsea leaves them handily positioned for the second leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League.

“If our team can preserve this form, we have a good chance of winning everything,” Hoeness told Blickpunkt Sport.

“I hope that the team can keep the rhythm.”

“It is something very special to score 100 goals in a Bundesliga season. It is a sensational achievement.”

Hoeness balked at the idea that the supremacy of Bayern was an unsustainable state of affairs for German football, calling on its rivals to do more.

“The others have to put in even more effort,” he added.

“You can’t expect Bayern to work only half a day to make the Bundesliga more exciting.”
