Bastian: Barca Still The Best

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger believes that there is more success to come for the Bavarians after scooping a historic treble this season.

Bayern won the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Champions League this term - and the victories meant that Schweinsteiger has now lifted 13 trophies at the Allianz Arena.

"It looks very, very nice to see those 13 trophies- I've collected a real heap," the Germany international said in an interview with Bild am Sonntag.

"And I have to say that it makes you hungry for more. I'm only 28 and actually, it's the perfect football age. I feel now a great joy for the coming season. And I'm assuming that we'll even add a few trophies.

"We all go with confidence into the new season. And again we have a world-class coach in [Pep] Guardiola. I'm very excited."

Despite their success, the midfielder believes that the team they beat 7-0 in the semi-finals of the Champions League, Barcelona, are still the best in Europe.

"In my eyes, Barcelona is still the number one club in Europe," the midfielder continued.

"They have been so consistent at international level for the last six years. One can not immediately stand up and say after winning a big title: 'We are now the new number one in Europe'.

"But in the first leg against Barcelona in Munich we reached perfection [the 4-0 Champions League semi-final win], we succeeded in our tactics. We made use of the previous season to bring on a really good development.

"Jupp Heynckes has managed to establish us as a true team. Now we really go as one both forwards and backwards. Even the attacking players have worked very hard defensively, which was the key to success.

"A team spirit has been created, which we benefited from this season - and from which we will benefit even more in the future."
