Festive cheer for the FCB family
FC Bayern looked back on a "successful and fantastic year" at a cosy and relaxed Christmas party on the second Sunday in Advent. Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge reviewed the year in his address.
The board, members' club committee, coaching staff and the players with their families gathered in star chef Alfons Schuhbeck's 'Spiegelzelt.' The 'Tölzer Knabenchor' boys' choir put the Bavarians in a Christmas mood. The Bayern family applauded an array of artists for excellent performances and enjoyed a meal of king prawns, duck breast and gingerbread ice cream.
Captain Philipp Lahm thanked all his team-mates and the staff for the past few months. Rummenigge said he was confident the team will cope with the upcoming challenges before Christmas and remain in the race for all three trophies. After that it will be important to take time out and recover, according to Rummenigge, and to "build up strength" to win trophies next year.
