Bayern’s 3-1 victory over VfL Bochum means the men in red can no longer realistically be denied a 22nd German championship. FCB’s star player ob the day was Thomas Müller, scorer of all three home goals. Second-placed Schalke lost 2-0 at home to Werder Bremen, meaning Bayern go into the final match three points and 17 goals ahead of Felix Magath’s men. “It’s been an unbelievable season,” veteran Jörg Butt commented.
Reaction to Bayern v Bochum
Louis van Gaal: “We’ve hit our most important target, winning the Bundesliga. The first 20, 25 minutes today were outstanding. It was the best we’ve played at the Allianz Arena this season. Then it was just a case of waiting to see what Schalke did. This trophy means a lot to me. There aren’t many coaches in Europe who’ve been fortunate enough to win the league in three countries. I’m very proud of that. We want to win more trophies now. Bayern is the best club I’ve ever worked for.”
Hans-Jörg Butt: “Winning my first trophy at the age of 35 is a bit special. It’s been an unbelievable season with many highs and lows, and a team with fantastic character. And then if you personally finish top for the first time, It’s just unbelievable.”
