The Bavarians won the Bundesliga title in record time last term, followed by the DFB Pokal, but a seeming drop of intensity and motivation cost them later on when they were eliminated by Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Ribery has insisted that they know where it all went wrong, though, and is confident they will not make the same errors this time around.
“It’ll be tough, but this team could win everything,” the former France international was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.
“There is always a lot of pressure at Bayern. We must always win. That’s the way things are at Bayern. You always have to win titles,” he continued to TZ.
“I think we have learned from what happened last year. We won the Bundesliga title quite early and a few players then got fewer game time and lost rhythm a bit. Maybe we took things a bit easier in training.
“If we win the title again at an early stage, we must keep going and maintain our rhythm. You cannot take things easy and then be back to your best when Real Madrid await. That’s simply impossible. That happened last year, but we have learned from it.”
