Ribery highlights importance of Bayern consistency

FC Bayern München star Franck Ribery believes that the Bavarians must continue to display the same team ethic, quality and consistency if the club is to win some major trophies this season.

Bayern are currently running away with the Bundesliga title and are also still alive in the DFB-Pokal Cup. In addition, the Carlo Ancelotti-coached outfit seems certain to advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League as they enjoy a 5-1 aggregate first leg lead over Arsenal in the round of 16.

Ribery takes the view that remaining completely focused is crucial to success in what will no doubt be a defining few months for the German champions.

He told the club's official website: "The atmosphere is very good. We're a real team. We want to achieve something together, we always want to win. The players on the bench are highly focused too, everybody's ready, even if he plays 20 or 30 minutes. 

"I've always said if we want to win titles we need every single player. You can't win every match 3-0. But we have to keep going. We have three very important months ahead of us."

The club's next order of business is a Champions League second leg tie against Arsenal on Tuesday in London. The action will take place at the Emirates Stadium in the English capital.
