Bayern Munich may not now be able to pick up six titles in 2013/14, but vice-captain Bastian Schweinsteiger still wants more success.

Bastian Schweinsteiger: Looks ahead to the new season

Defeat in the German Supercup means Bayern can now only add to the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League they are looking to defend by lifting the European Supercup and the Club World Cup if they are to better their treble-winning 2012/13 campaign.

But, with the World Cup also on the horizon next summer, Germany international Schweinsteiger could still sweep the board and add a further six titles to his ever-growing list of achievements.

"Whenever I take to the field, I want to win - also at the World Cup," said the 28-year-old, who has just been voted the German football writers' player of the year for 2013.

"I want to defend all of the titles we've got - particularly the Champions League."

No side has ever successfully defended the Champions League since the tournament assumed its current title in 1992.

With Pep Guardiola taking charge, and new signings of the Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze ilk, Bayern are widely favoured to break that taboo and also successfully defend their other titles - although a 4-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund at the weekend suggested they may not have everything their own way in 2013/14.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
