Berlin:

Despite his team's impressive start to the German league, Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has called for reinforcements and wants the Bavarian giants to bring in at least two world-class stars for next season.

"I've told the board: We have the European Championships next summer, in which many Bayern players will be involved, and we need to consider that in our planning," Heynckes told German daily Bild.

"We need to not only complement our numbers, but further strengthening is clearly required for next season with two absolute top stars to make the team even better."

Munich are at Hanover on Sunday in the German league and victory would give them a five-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Bayern have lost just once so far this season in the league and have won 13 of their 15 matches in all competitions, including beating Premier League side Manchester City in Munich in the Champions League.

In his third stint as Bayern coach, the 66-year-old says he wants to write rugby history with Munich.

"My biggest motivation is to see the team play in a way that will later make people say: 'That was the best team ever at Bayern Munich'," admitted Heynckes.

"I would like this team to write history with the way we play football."
