Robben: Bayern On Track For Trophies
The Bavarian outfit failed to win a single trophy last term, finishing runners-up in the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Uefa Champions League, but the Dutch attacker was buoyed by Sunday’s victory.
New signing Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead early befoe Thomas Muller buried the ball home from close range on 11 minutes after Robben had hit the post. Dortmund pulled a goal back in the second half through Robert Lewandowski but there was no leveller.
“Hopefully, this will help us get more trophies this season,” Robben told ZDF. “It was important for us to set an example today. We are on the right track as a team.”
Meanwhile, Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp lamented his chances but was optimistic after an improved second half.
“We went missing in the first half,” Klopp told ZDF. “The result is okay, because we played much better in the second half. We had some big chances.”
