FC Bayern are champions for the eighth time in a row. DFL boss Christian Seifert hands over the bowl to the Munich team in the empty Wolfsburg stadium and highlights the performance of everyone involved in the Corona crisis. Thomas Müller gets to the point.
AThey didn’t want to do without the lap of honor. If there was no confetti and no wheat beer showers, then it should at least be the cheering tour of the Wolfsburg stadium. Here and there, the FC Bayern players even found someone in the stands with whom they could do a La-Ola.
As after the victory in Bremen, when the team had made the title perfect, the club bosses Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Herbert Hainer and Oliver Kahn had to serve as jubilant partners in the stands.
Bayern celebrate their eighth championship title in a row. Although this has now become routine for Jérôme Boateng, Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer, the celebration after the 4-0 win in Wolfsburg should remain a special memory.
“This is a special moment. But that is also a very strange moment. Everyone has never had a season like this, ”said Christian Seifert, Managing Director of the German Football League (DFL). Seifert handed the bowl over to Bavaria’s captain Manuel Neuer. “No spectators, no cheers, no whistles – that’s a strange atmosphere. But to finish our championship today is a huge achievement, ”said Seifert.
“You don’t want to get used to it”
Due to the safety and hygiene concept of the German Football League (DFL), only 100 people were allowed inside the stadium. The DFL boss thanked the authorities, the fans who had stayed at home for months and all the pros that the season could be ended despite the corona pandemic: “I know that you have tried very hard in the past few weeks under very complicated conditions bring. By doing so, you have contributed to the fact that all 36 DFL clubs have survived this phase of the crisis. ”
A small master celebration within the scope of the corona possibilities already took place last Saturday in the Munich arena. The team sat with the club bosses and the closest employees over dinner. From now on, the focus is on the cup final next Saturday in Berlin against Bayer Leverkusen.
Thomas Müller doesn’t even want to get used to winning titles without fans: “We knew what was coming. Of course it’s different, you don’t want to get used to a situation like this. The biggest thanks go to those we don’t see today, the fans out there. The feeling is missing. “
