High praise from DFL CEO Christian Seifert

During this very unique year, there have been different gaps between the various domestic seasons and the Champions League finals tournament, and it was interesting to see how teams from different countries would cope with it. FC Bayern found their own way -- and simply carried on as if there'd never been a break. It's an outstanding achievement to win the treble twice in seven years. My congratulations go to the management of FC Bayern Munich and the whole club."
