Bayern Munich's UEFA Champions League winner Arjen Robben insists his team-mates are determined to give retiring manager Jupp Heynckes the perfect send-off by clinching the treble next weekend.

For Manuel Neuer, who is now challenging for the unofficial tag of best goalkeeper in the world, it was his first Champions League winner's medal to add to his first Bundesliga title. "To win two titles in one year is incredible, now we have a great chance of three trophies which is unbelievable," he said. Another player who did much to secure the trophy was Javi Martinez, the Spanish midfielder who was one of four relatively unheralded players who arrived in Munich last summer - along with Dante, Xherdan Shaqiri and Mandzukic - and has transformed the team. Not only is the treble in sight but Bayern have smashed records for points and goal difference in the Bundesliga. Martinez said: "You couldn't really ask for more in my first year, it's incredible. "We are now the best team in Europe, and we hope we can remain there in the coming years."
