Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski praised his team after the “enormous achievement” they achieved by winning the 10th consecutive German Football League title before the last three rounds of the season.
In front of stands full of fans, the Bavarian club defeated its direct rivals, Borussia Dortmund, 3-1, expanding the difference between the two teams in the lead to 12 points.
Thus, Bayern won the first German league title 31 times since its launch in 1963 and 32 titles in the league championship in total.
“It is not always easy to maintain a stable level and play in an excellent manner throughout the season,” said the veteran Polish striker. Maybe in a few years people will discover the huge achievement of winning the title 10 times in a row.”
For his part, striker Thomas Muller, who became the first player to win the league title 11 times, said that winning the German League title gives a unique feeling.
The German striker added: “This situation is not repeated often when you win the championship title against the direct opponents in your stadium. This is really what we wanted to achieve.”
Bayern midfielder Jamal Musiala also said that he was very happy after scoring the third goal for his team, which secured him a victory over Dortmund, while his colleague Joshua Kimmich expressed his great happiness with the “outstanding” achievement of the team as well.
Kimmich added: “It may seem normal to those who are far from the situation. But this takes a lot of hard work. We are happy and proud to have achieved this great goal.”
