thumbnail Hello,

The versatile Bavarians veteran, who captained Germany to World Cup success in the summer, is looking forward to targeting more trophies under Pep Guardiola this season

Bayern Munich star Philipp Lahm insists the club have enormous goals ahead of the start of the 2014-15 season.

The Bavarians bagged four trophies in 2013-14 - the Uefa Super Cup, the Club World Cup, the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal - but missed out on the one they will have wanted most, failing to retain the Champions League they had lifted the previous year.

Lahm spent his summer increasing his overflowing silverware cabinet further by captaining Germany to World Cup glory and he is anticipating another stellar campaign with the German giants.

"After I've had three weeks of vacation - I can say this now - I'm looking forward to being back with Bayern," he told Bild am Sonntag. "Bayern always pursue huge goals."

Pep Guardiola will be in charge at the Allianz Arena for his second consecutive season, having taken over from treble-winning Jupp Heynckes just over a year ago.

Lahm was converted into a defensive midfielder from a full-back by the Spanish coach and the 30-year-old's focus will be completely on Bayern after he announced his retirement from international football following Germany's victory in Brazil.

Bayern open their Bundesliga campaign against Wolfsburg on August 22 but will face Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup on August 13 beforehand, when they will be hoping to exact revenge on Jurgen Klopp's men for their defeat in the cup in 2013.
