Munich: Arjen Robben feels Bayern Munich have no reason to panic after their somewhat surprising 4-2 German Supercup loss against Borussia Dortmund at the weekend.

The reigning Bundesliga champions failed to win their first trophy under new coach Pep Guardiola as Jurgen Klopp`s side put in a clinical display against Bayern`s fragile-looking defence, but Robben has stressed that the defeat was a mere blot on their record and not a warning sign of things to come.

"We should have a good look at our performance, but there`s no reason to panic and absolutely zero reason to worry," Robben told TZ.

"All credit to Dortmund. They deserved their win. But it was more a matter of us losing the game than them winning it.

"I don`t think that we conceded four goals because of our attacking style of play. We shouldn`t read too much into it. We should learn from our mistakes.

"We will keep on going and there are still a few more trophies to win this season. It was a good test for us against a strong opponent."

Bayern open their Bundesliga campaign at home against Greuther Furth on August 10.

I`ve got my strength back, which is nice. Now the next goal is to get my explosiveness and my fast twitch going, and that`s the next phase of my training.
