Robben: Bayern is hungrier for titles than last season

The Netherlands international thinks that the entire squad is fully committed, and admitted to being unhappy with the team's performance against Napoli.

Bayern Munich ace Arjen Robben has conceded that the team is eager to win titles after two seasons without a trophy.

The Bavarian giant finished second in the Bundesliga last season to Borussia Dortmund, before succumbing to the same opponents in the DFB-Pokal final and losing the Champions League decider to Chelsea on penalties. As Bayern prepares to contest its first official title of the new season, the German Super Cup against Dortmund, Robben stated that the team aims to do one better this term.

"We have a season behind us in which we were close to all titles, but in the end we did not win anything," the Dutchman told Bild. "The hunger for titles is even greater now. I already feel a lot of desire in the team, even if we are missing several key players who are still on holiday after Euro 2012."

Robben then called on the team to show more focus in the pitch following the club's 3-2 defeat to Napoli in a friendly match on Friday.

"You must never lose," Robben added. "We must always win. Before half-time we gave them a goal to make it 1-1 too easily. This should not be happening. That is the sort of thing that cost us points in the Bundesliga"
