Minister President Söder honours FC Bayern
FC Bayern visited the courtyard garden of the Bavarian State Chancellery in glorious sunshine and summery temperatures on Wednesday afternoon. Minister President Dr Markus Söder honoured Niko Kovač' team for last season's championship title and DFB Cup triumph. Söder described the German record champions an "international figurehead" for the state, and not only because of the double.
"I think it's an incredible honour when the Minister President of Bavaria says: If FC Bayern thrives, Bavaria thrives," said FCB president Uli Hoeneß, thanking Söder for the invitation and presenting him with a number 12 jersey, the number of times FC Bayern have won the double. The FC Bayern delegation subsequently signed the state's Golden Book.
