thumbnail Hello,

The Netherlands international welcomes Pep Guardiola and feels that die Roten must aim for winning the triple this season, rather than just focusing on the domestic competition

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has said that the goal of his team this season is not to simply win the Bundesliga.

The German giants, who missed out on league titles in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, are now looking to get back on track with a nine-point lead on second-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

But the Dutchman is adamant his team is ready to aim for more than just one piece of silverware.

"I often hear the championship is the most important thing. I beg to differ," the 28-year-old told Kicker.

"Three titles must be the goal, the Champions League and Bundesliga are the most important things.

"We are on a good [run] and must know that we can compete on the highest level. If it is going well, we can't disregard the details, especially in the defense."

Robben also spoke about the arrival of former Barcelona trainer Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena this summer.

"That, of course, sounds superb and I look forward to the co-operation. But we have an important second half of the season ahead of us and must win at least one title."

Bayern Munich are looking to expand their lead when they face 10th-placed Stuttgart on January 27.
