Boateng: Bayern can't rest

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng admits the Champions League winners cannot rest on their laurels as their rivals will be back stronger than ever.

Pep Guardiola will succeed Jupp Heynckes as Bayern coach next season and with the club on a brink of a treble – the Bundesliga and Champions League are in the bag and the German Cup final against Stuttgart awaits next weekend – Boateng says they have to aim to do it all again. He said: "We don't need to speak now about our new manager, we will just take this win for the manager we have now. We deserve this.

"We have one final left and we will now concentrate on winning that. But next season we want to do the same so you cannot rest, we know the other teams will be stronger."

Not only is the treble in sight but Bayern have smashed records for points and goal difference in the Bundesliga.
