It all starts again in three days time. FC Bayern will open the 58th Bundesliga season with a home match against Schalke 04. Only a little over three weeks ago, the Munich team finished the season just gone with a famous Champions League triumph. No problems for Leon Goretzka, who's already eagerly awaiting the new challenges ahead. "I don't have the feeling that we are satisfied. On the contrary: you can tell during training how hungry we are and that's the key to more titles," the 25-year-old said on Tuesday in the pre-match press conference ahead of the clash against his former club.

Full effort for maximum success

Leon Goretzka works hard in training and does not let Jérôme Boateng get past.

To make sure that Bayern are fit right from the off, the team have worked hard during their short pre-season. On Tuesday, an intense session with numerous sprints and running exercises was on the agenda once more. Watching training confirmed Goretzka's comments; the Bavarians are fully there and have big ambitions for the season ahead. "Defending the Double is fun, defending the Treble even more so," the Germany international said, explaining what motivates him and the nature of the team's hunger.

In the press conference on Tuesday, Leon Goretzka answered all the questions put to him before the start of the domestic campaign.
