thumbnail Hello,

The former Germany international feels it's too early to focus on next week's match at Wembley and has made it clear FCB must stay relaxed

Matthias Sammer has stressed that Bayern Munich must remain calm ahead of the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.

The Bavarians' focus is slowly turning towards next week's showpiece at Wembley, but the club's sporting director has insisted that they need to stay focused and should not start doing things differently all of a sudden.

"We need normality, professionalism, cool heads, serenity, and everyday things," Sammer told the club's official website.

"Given our team’s stability and ability to perform, we have no reason suddenly to throw the focus so heavily on the final that we start thinking we should be doing a number of things differently.

"We don't need to start feeling cramped or that we need to push too hard. It's much too early as well. For now, Monchengladbach is the centre of attention."

Bayern take on Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday before locking horns with BVB one week later in London.
