Bundesliga week 34
Bayern Munich trash Frankfurt 5-1 to clinch title in a wild season. Bayern are German champions of the 7th time in a row and 28th time overall. The most dominant club in German’s football history gave two of its legends a perfect farewell.
Ribery and Robben farewell
It was the last game under the Bayern Munich jersey for two club’s legends. Both players have dynamited Bayern’s offense the last decade and will leave the club with yet another title. The Frenchman and the Dutch also scored the 4th and 5th goal respectively to conclude the win and their career in Munich. Definitely the best way togo out.
Coach Kovac on a hard-fought title:
“I’d like to thank my team and our fans, we’ve achieved great things. We were nine points adrift in autumn, so warm congratulations to my lads. I’m completely happy but also exhausted, and I hope we can build on it next week. Before the match I heard that only the great Kaiser [Franz Beckenbauer] has won the championship title here [at FC Bayern] as both player and coach, but that’s only a side note.
Emotions are part of football, that’s what makes football beautiful, so I’d like to thank the fans. We knew Dortmund were in front at half-time. We were glad when we restored the lead, and then, in light of Frankfurt’s exhausting season, it was clear we’d get space, and we used it very well.”
Franck Ribéry for his last game with Bayern:
“My whole family, my kids, my wife, my parents, my wife’s parents and my cousins have come from France for this special moment. It was hard but the main thing is we’re champions. It’s my last great moment here at the Allianz Arena, with my colleagues and the fans. It’s not as if I’ve been here two or three years, I’ve been a Bayern player for 12 years. I’ve had many great moments here but my best season was 2013. What we achieved then was incredible.”
Arjen Robben on his last goal with Bayern: “Many emotions run through your body after a match like this, you can’t put it into words. It’s something you have to experience yourself. But the best thing is that many lads who played with me during my time at Bayern were here today. I fought for my comeback for five months, and today was the reward.”
