thumbnail Hello,

The official has not restricted die Roten's ambitions to merely winning the Bundesliga and regards becoming European champions as the ultimate prize

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has called for the club to continue dreaming big and hopes the club will be wearing the proverbial Champions League crown by the end of the season.

The Bavarians posted their 23rd Bundesliga triumph on Saturday with a 1-0 win against Frankfurt but Hoeness has instructed the team not to rest on their laurels, and continue to break new ground.

Though admitting success in the DFB-Pokal was a priority, the three-time European Cup winner himself did not disguise to reporters that achieving continental glory remained the greatest form of gratification: "Of course, winning the Champions League is our next goal.

"The DFB-Pokal is a wonderful thing, especially for the fans. If you reach the final, there's always a huge festival going on in Berlin.

"But one thing is clear; the Champions League is the league of the kings, where we want to get as far as possible."

Despite openly coveting European glory, Hoeness was still quick to acknowledge the feat of seeing off runners-up Borussia Dortmund in such unassailable fashion.

"Borussia Dortmund have really annoyed us for two years but we have now responded with winning the title six matchdays before the season end, and with a 20-point advantage too," the 61-year-old concluded.

"We gave a wonderful response to the challenge Dortmund put upon us, and overall this league title is a fantastic thing."
