Eyes on the treble

Heroes of Wembley gear up for the cup

The Champions League and Bundesliga trophies are safely in Munich, but Bayern are not done yet with the 2012/13 campaign, as the Reds seek to crown an exceptional season by beating VfB Stuttgart in the DFB Cup final in Berlin on Saturday, completing the fabled treble and becoming the first German club ever to achieve the milestone feat.

“We have a huge chance to make history and achieve something which has never been done before. I'm convinced the team will approach the match exactly as they’ve approached every match in recent months,” chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told fcbayern.de in our exclusive interview on Tuesday. “We have to concentrate 100 percent, take our opponents seriously, and show respect.”

Three days after the 2-1 victory over Dortmund at Wembley, the stars returned to the practice ground and training facility on Tuesday morning, turning their sights to Saturday evening’s clash in front of a sell-out crowd at Berlin Olympic Stadium. After the Champions League celebrations and two days off, the heroes of Wembley initially “need to get back into it a bit," Arjen Robben reported.
