Rummenigge: Bayern's goal is to win titles

The Bavarians' CEO stated that the club are aiming to end their two-year run without a trophy, and made it clear that Matthias Sammer has the full support of the board of directors
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted that the club want to put an end to their dry run and claim their first piece of silverware since 2010.

The Bavarians finished the 2011-12 campaign empty handed, finishing second in the Bundesliga, losing the DFB-Pokal final to Borussia Dortmund and suffering a heart-breaking defeat on penalties in the Champions League against Chelsea.

Rummenigge made it clear that Bayern's goal is to end their two-year barren streak, and insisted that newly-appointed sporting director Matthias Sammer has the full support of the club.

"Our goal is clear: we want to win titles," he told Bild.

"He [Sammer] has our full support. He has a place in his heart for Bayern and he is very responsible."

Rummenigge went on to suggest that there could be more arrivals at the Bavarian club before the end of the transfer window.

"The transfer window is open until August 31. If Jupp Heynckes and Matthias Sammer think that we need more players, we will deal with it."
