A double celebration is in order following a successful season for Bayern Munich’s mens’ and womens’ teams.

After the men lifted their ninth successive Bundesliga title last month, the women’s team added another trophy to the club’s bulging cabinet when they clinched a first Frauen-Bundesliga since 2016 on Sunday.

Speaking to the club’s official website, president Herbert Hainer congratulated the women’s team on their brilliant acheivement.

“Chapeau! I think it’s absolutely great,” said Hainer.

“If you win 20 out of 22 games in a season, you’ve more than earned it. It’s not just the wins, it’s the way the women play. It’s really great and that’s why they are deserved German champions.

“If you’ve seen the technical level today, and the physical ability, you have to say that women’s football has developed tremendously.

“I’ve always said we want to be top not just in Germany but also in Europe. We’ve achieved this nationally and, of course, we want to go even further internationally.”

CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also doffed his cap to Jens Scheuer and his players.

“Our women have played a great season. Today they became German champions and they did well in the Champions League,” said Rummenigge.

“We can only pay them a big compliment. I think the development of women’s football at FC Bayern is extremely positive. We’ve been doing this for 50 years, you shouldn’t forget that.

“The way things have developed over the past five to ten years, you have to tip your hat.”

And legendary former goalkeeper and Bayern goalkeeper Oliver Kahn insists this title is just the beginning.

“After five years, the title is finally coming back to Munich,” said Kahn.

“Congratulations to the players, the staff and all those responsible for this great success. I’m already looking forward to next season. We can still achieve a lot with this team.”
