Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says that the club's hunger for titles was the motivation for their treble-winning season.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has said that the club's hunger for titles was the motivation for their historic treble-winning season.

The Bavarian outfit had gone two campaigns without winning a major trophy before claiming the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League last season.

Neuer has said that Bayern's players have been on a high since helping the club become the first German outfit to complete the treble.

"We have always been keen on winning those three titles," he told Kicker.

"Now we know how great you feel every morning, starting every day with a smile. The titles drive us and are a great motivation for the new season."

Neuer played 50 times for Bayern last season.
