The coach ended with a promise: "We'll be back even stronger next season."
Reaction to Bayern v Mainz
Pep Guardiola: "Congratulations to the team, my staff and our fans. They've supported us brilliantly, especially against Barcelona. We'll be back even stronger next season with the best-possible squad. We always have to keep going."
Bastian Schweinsteiger: "It's been a very good season. We've won the league for the third time in a row, which doesn't just happen automatically. It's the first time for me in fact. In the Champions League we lost it in the last ten minutes against Barcelona, otherwise we might have made the final in that competition too. We know how it unfolded in the cup. We were close to making both finals. Taking into account all the injuries, we've done very well overall."
Philipp Lahm: "It's still very special indeed when you're top of the pile after 34 matches. It can never be taken for granted. A lot of work goes into it. The team deserves it."
