Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich, have been crowned champions for an eight-straight consecutive year. This comes after their one-nil win at SV Werder Bremen on Tuesday night.
Bayern have been indubitable in the Bundesliga and dominantly monopolised the German top division. With their 7th straight win since the restart of the Bundesliga back in May, they have in the process secured their eighth league title in the last eight years and their 30th overall.
Leading the pack with 73 points, Bayern, with a win on Tuesday night, would automatically and mathematically win the league after matchday 32 with 2 matches to spare.
Bayern Management Offer Their Congrats
Former German and Bayern Munich goalkeeper, and currently serving as an executive board member at the club, Oliver Kahn, relished the importance of being part of this milestone amid hard conditions of coronavirus:
“Bundesliga Champions 2020! Despite the difficult conditions in the last weeks, we can celebrate the eight German Champions in a row. Congrats to the team and all members of @fcBayern! These times show the great cohesion of this club and I’m proud of being part of it.”
“We are proud of FC Bayern have once again shown what we’re capable of, even in these unusual times. This eighth title in a row for FC Bayern is certainly a very special one—the circumstances caused by the coronavirus crisis have thrown all normal procedures into disarray and confronted us with new, unpredictable challenge.”
“We want to give our fans trophies and at the same time inspire them with attacking football. That’s been achieved.”
~Karl-Heinz Rummeinigge, CEO
“You never succeeded alone, only together, credit to the team! The way we’ve played in recent months—you feel the passion, the character, the joy of playing, the fighting spirit.”
~Hansi Flick, Head Coach
Players also add their thoughts
Robert Lewandowski, current leading goal scorer with 31 goals, says it’s unusual and quite difficult to celebrate without fans: “We’re German champions. It’s obviously difficult celebrating without fans. That certain something extra, that passion is lacking.”
Bayern players have celebrated this widely on social media with midfielder Thomas Muller writing on his Instagram account: “I love my team, @fcbayern what a great performance in the last months.”
Thiago Alcaranta, who now has seven Bundesliga titles with Bayern since joining from Barcelona, simply wrote “NUMBER7! @fcbayern”
Despite, the celebrations Bayern currently with 76 points, still have to play two games traditionally, they host SC Freidburg on Saturday before ending their season on the road at Wolfsburg.
