thumbnail Hello,

The France international has added a little spice to this weekend's encounter with holders Borussia Dortmund by insisting he has no doubt that Bayern will be champions come May

Franck Ribery is confident that Bayern Munich will win the Bundesliga title this term having had to settle for second spot last season.

The Bavarians sit atop of the table after 14 games, holding a 10-point lead over second-placed Bayer Leverkusen, and the Frenchman insists that Bayern will be able to ensure they do not repeat the mistakes of last year's campaign.

"I am 100 per cent sure that we will become champions," Ribery was quoted as saying by Bild.

"The disappointments from last season motivate us to do better this year. We are all desperate to win the title. That's the most important goal. After that, we can then look at how far we can go in the Champions League and DFB Pokal.

"We cannot afford to make the same mistakes we made last year against smaller clubs. We had an eight-point lead, but Borussia Dortmund beat us to the title. I am convinced that we have learned from what happened."

Bayern are currently preparing for Saturday's home match against Dortmund.
