Neuer enjoying Bundesliga domination

Bayern München goalkeeper Manuel Neuer admits he does not care if some people find the club's current domination of the Bundesliga boring. 

The defending champions played against title rivals BVB Dortmund on Sunday and subsequently thrashed them 5-1 to continue their perfect start of eight wins from their first eight league games.

Dortmund also began the match with an unbeaten record and were seen as Bayern's only real rivals for the domestic title this season. No more it seems.

Bayern head coach Pep Guardiola insisted after the clash that the race for the title is not over as there is still most of the season to play but, in current form, it is incredibly difficult to look past the Bavarian giants.

And, while some feel this makes the league boring, Neuer says the squad does not care, because they are only interested in winning every game they play.

"As players at Bayern, we're not interested in any boredom – we're interested in picking up three points each game," he told Kicker. "We've got a possible record in front of us as the first team to become German champions four times in a row. That's our goal."

After only winning the German league last term, having claimed a treble the season before, Neuer admitted they will not be satisfied until they have repeated that objective.

"We ourselves aren't [satisfied] either," he added. "Just this week I spoke with [Thomas] Muller about our exit against Barcelona last year, so something remains in our minds. The treble would obviously be the ultimate for us."
