Arjen Robben has said there is no danger that Bayern Munich will become complacent as they chase a Treble.
Bayern are motoring towards a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title and looking to repeat their 2013 Champions League success under Jupp Heynckes, while they have also reached the DFB Pokal semifinals.
They have won 20 of their 21 games since 72-year-old Heynckes returned to the club to take over from Carlo Ancelotti in October, and Robben told kicker: “It is impressive how we keep winning our games since the change in coach.
“We must maintain this rhythm in order to increase our chances in the Champions League as well.”
Asked about the possibility that Bayern, 18 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, could become complacent, Robben said: “That’s not in this team’s nature.
“We have enough experience and leaders out on the pitch to set the tone. On top of that, we have a coach who knows exactly what’s needed at the top level. I don’t see any danger of us easing off.”
Robben, Bayern’s second longest-serving player behind Franck Ribery, added that he was “very proud to be a part of this club, the policies it pursues and what the club stands for.”
He said: “Bayern has earned everything it has itself, and you have to pay the whole club a massive compliment.”
With Robben’s current contract set to expire in the summer, kicker reported that his father and agent Hans had been advised that his son’s future will not be decided until mid-April at the earliest.
It said the indications were that Robben would agree another year’s extension, taking him up to a decade of service.
