We're better than Dortmund – Wagner urges Bayern to respond

Sandro Wagner still believes Bayern Munich will win the Bundesliga despite their slow start to the season.

Bayern Munich forward Sandro Wagner dismissed any suggestions the club was rebuilding, saying the Bundesliga champion has a better squad than Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund is four points clear atop the table and seven ahead of Bayern after winning a thrilling Der Klassiker on Saturday.

Wagner feels Bayern is better than Dortmund despite its contrasting starts to the season, as the Germany international urged his team to respond and win the league title.

"It's crazy when you look at the league table. We are fifth, which can't be the aspiration of Bayern Munich or us players," he said.

"We have to win the Bundesliga title this year, anything else would be a disappointment. We have the best team by far, in Germany.

"Of course, Dortmund have played a couple of good games, but in my opinion we are the better team.

"Therefore, every single player needs to have the ambition to become a German champion. To say it's a rebuilding phase or similar is rubbish.

"We have to win the Bundesliga."
