Toni: no plans to leave Bayern

Italy striker Luca Toni says he isn't considering leaving Bayern Munich despite the arrival of new rivals in the powerful German club's attack.
Bayern has made several major signings ahead of new coach Louis Van Gaal's first season, including Croatia forward Ivica Olic and Germany striker Mario Gomez.
"I think it was a smart decision to bring them in," Toni was quoted Tuesday as telling the Bild daily.
Asked if he had any thoughts of seeking a transfer, Toni replied: "No. I feel very good in Munich."
"Bayern has everything I want at the moment: excellent prospects for the championship and a real chance to win the Champions League."
"I promise my fans: I will remain faithful to Bayern," Toni said, according to the report.
Toni dismissed a suggestion that he might now be Bayern's third-choice striker, behind Gomez and fellow Germany international Miroslav Klose.
He said he was confident of not being benched, noting that he scored "some decisive goals" last season.
"There is no No.3 and no No. 1 among the strikers," he was quoted as saying. "The trainer alone decides on the lineup. It makes no sense to speculate now about who will be used when."
