Robben: “See that we don’t become our own opponent”
On Sunday, FC Bayern will really get going. At 8.30 p.m. the German champion will take revenge for his defeat in the DFB Cup final against Eintracht during the Supercup in Frankfurt. Niko Kovac quickly returns to his former place of work – with Jerome Boateng? Arjen Robben not only has clear ideas about this.
The possible move from Boateng to Paris St. Germain is still on the table, but the 29-year-old was still at Tegernsee on Thursday morning. On the training ground of FC Rottach-Egern with FC Bayern. And with Robben. Jerome Boateng is clearly positioned when it comes to boateng: “Jerome Boateng is one of the best central defenders in the world for me. “We’ve had a lot of success with him, Jerome is just very important to this team.”
And finally, FC Bayern have a lot of plans for the coming season as well, wants to get the maximum out of it. “We want one more title than last season,” lets Robben know. Especially the Champions League triumph is back at the top of the list, and the DFB Cup is to return to Munich alongside the seventh consecutive championship title.
And, as Robben points out, every player in the squad is important, according to Arturo Vidal (FC Barcelona) no player should leave the FCB if possible. “We are very complete and have a lot of quality in our team. This has to stay together, and then we can succeed.”
Only if the Starensemble von der Isar is not hungry enough, Robbencan see problems. The 34-year-old did not want to commit himself to a specific pursuer in the league, “we’ll see. But the Dutchman demands “that we not become our own opponent”. We have to look at ourselves.” He sees the team prepared for the start with the Supercup match on Sunday in Frankfurt, the DFB Cup match at the regional league team SV Drochtersen/Assel (18 August) and the league start against Hoffenheim (24 August). “We have trained very intensively, we will hopefully see that in the next weeks!”
