Rummenigge: 'We need greater focus and desire'

"Back to the top!" is the cover story and lead article featured in the Bayern match programme for this Saturday's home showdown against Bundesliga leaders Hertha BSC Berlin, when the champions go in search of the victory which could see them replace the men from the capital at the head of the standings.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has used his column in the same magazine to underline his expectations of a swift return to top spot in the league, although the former world-class striker also makes no secret of his anxiety at the club's recent displays. "Two away defeats in a row against teams from the bottom third of the table have to be grounds for concern," the chairman declares.

<b>Appeal to the players</b>

Rummenigge is clearly still perturbed by the 2-1 defeat in Bielefeld and the 1-0 reverse against then bottom club Wolfsburg, especially as those games sandwiched a stunning 2-0 away triumph against Internazionale in Milan. "I have a feeling our team is struggling with the bread and butter of the league," the chairman reflects.

The former Germany international is expecting a change for the better against Berlin. "I am issuing an appeal to the team. We need a change of attitude in the Bundesliga," he writes, although Rummenigge does not feel "our undisputed goal" of defending the league title is in danger. "We need greater focus, desire and, more than anything else, the fundamental will to win when we run out in the league," he comments. The boss will be watching Saturday's events closely for evidence his call has been heeded.
