“We've been outstanding," said Uli Hoeneß after Bayern sealed the Bundesliga title in record time, “I can hardly describe how fantastic I find this championship." Head coach Jupp Heynckes spoke of “an emotional moment," while David Alaba said he and his team-mates would “simply enjoy it." However, captain Philipp Lahm led a chorus of voices warning against over-exuberance: “We still have big targets."
Reaction to FCB’s 23rd Bundesliga title triumph:
Uli Hoeneß: “We've been outstanding this season. It's very rare that the champions dominate the league in this way. In all the years I've been with FCB, I can't remember us being so outstanding, and winning the league by such a massive margin six games from the end. A huge thank-you, to the coach in particular but also to the players. They've never been knocked out of their stride, and they've worked their way determinedly towards this day despite our gigantic lead. I can hardly find the words to describe how fantastic I find this championship.”
Matthias Sammer: “It's a pleasure and a great feeling. We can be happy, but we have to conduct ourselves appropriately.”
