Ribery '100 percent sure' Bayern will win title

By Football News



Bayern Munich attacker Franck Ribery is certain his side will win the Bundesliga title this campaign after being runners-up last season.

Jupp Heynckes' men sit atop of the table after 14 games, holding a 10-point lead over second-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

Ribery insists Bayern will be able to ensure they do not repeat the mistakes of last year's campaign, when they let a lead slip as Borussia Dortmund won the title.

"I am 100 percent sure that we will become champions," the Frenchman told Bild.

"The disappointments from last season motivate us to do better this year. We are all desperate to win the title. That's the most important goal.

"After that, we can then look at how far we can go in the Champions League and DFB Pokal.

"We cannot afford to make the same mistakes we made last year against smaller clubs. We had an eight-point lead, but Borussia Dortmund beat us to the title.

"I am convinced that we have learned from what happened."
