Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes believes that reigning champions Borussia Dortmund are the number 1 favourites for the Bundesliga title.
Coming into the season on the back of the disappointing performance at the Liga Total Cup, which was won by Borrusia Dortmund, Bayern boss says Jurgen Klopp’s side are the team to beat.
“Dortmund are the reigning champions and the champions will of course go into the new season as the favourites.
“Bayer Leverkusen have also strengthened and these two teams, along with us, will battle it out for the league title.
“Of course we want to be German title winners but no team is crowned before the final day of the season.
“The team has shown desire and commitment but it is difficult to put what we have worked on in the last few training sessions into practice.”
The experienced coach was not happy with his team’s effort at the aforementioned tournament.
“We know where we made mistakes and we will analyse them. We must not lose the ball so easily and allow the opponent to hit us on the counterattack.
“I think that when the players are fully fit, such mistakes will not occur.”
