Matthias Sammer: Still has desire for records

Since clinching the title two weeks ago, Bayern have beaten Nurnberg 4-0 and Hannover 6-1, as well as thrashing Wolfsburg 6-1 in the DFB-Pokal semi-final - showing a hunger which Sammer says will not diminish.

"We wanted to win because we wanted to beat 81 points for a season, which is the record up to now," he said after Saturday's 26th win of the campaign.

"You've got to pay the team a huge compliment."

The win took Bayern on to 81 points with four games of the season remaining, and set them up well for Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona.

That game is now the priority, although Sammer insists future Bayern coach and former Barca tactician Pep Guardiola has not been contacted for advice.

"We certainly haven't spoken to him," Sammer told Sport1 television.

"It would be morally wrong towards (coach) Jupp Heynckes and Pep Guardiola to do such a thing."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
