Winning the league before playing against Borussia Mönchengladbach was a “bizarre situation” according to Manuel Neuer but the squad was determined to put on a championship-worthy performance before starting their celebrations.

“We wanted to show who the true German champions were and lay down a marker at the Allianz Arena,” said the goalkeeper to club media.

“Those moments when the game is slowly coming to an end, you pick up a win or it’s already been decided – then it just tingles all over your body.”

Thomas Müller also reflected on the achievement, highlighting how winning a record tenth personal Bundesliga title is only done with plenty of hard work.

“When you start out as a little boy, you don’t think you’ll be playing in the first team at FC Bayern … to be champions nine times in a row is crazy,” he said.

“It’s a huge amount of work every year, a lot of heart and soul goes into it, but we also have a great team every year.”

“It’s not [just] about winning the title. It’s about wanting to win every game … that’s the secret of this hunger.”
