Champions! Bayern win sixth consecutive Bundesliga title

  • Current Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes will leave the German giants at the end of the season

"We work hard to be able to celebrate the title with the fans".

Two quickfire second-half goals from Paul Pogba and one from Chris Smalling for Manchester United put a dampener on Manchester City's march towards the Premier League title.

Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner scored as the side came from behind to move an unassailable 20 points ahead of Schalke, which was defeated at Hamburger SV later.

The German champions came from behind to secure their sixth consecutive league title.

With Heynckes having made it clear he will leave again at the end of the season, Bayern have the unenviable task of finding a successor.

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes dedicates his team's title win to his predecessor Carlo Ancelotti.

Heynckes could yet cap a fairytale return by winning the European Cup for the sixth time in Bayern's history in the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26.

Dutchman Robben dismissed suggestions Bayern had not earned their domestic championship title.

Speaking to reporters after the match, Heynckes said: "I want to greet Carlo Ancelotti in Italy. He's a great coach and a great person".

Heynckes is expected be step down at the end of the season after his fourth spell in charge of Die Roten in what has been a sensational season for the veteran tactician.


He has left his future open, meaning Bayern could need a new head coach next season.

"The coach is responsible for the big picture, but first and foremost the players are the protagonists".

"I have a very fine-tuned coaching team and everyone does an outstanding job", he said.

"That's why I think it's a success for everyone, not just me".

There is also the not insignificant matter of a DFB-Pokal semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen on April 17.

"It's always nice to win the title, but to be honest: we knew it was coming, it was nearly impossible for things to go wrong", said the Dutchman. "Nothing is given away in the Bundesliga".

Robben added: "We have to enjoy it, but stay focused on football".

"It's always good (to win a title) - we knew it was going to happen, but we still had to confirm it", said Robben, who has now won the Bundesliga title seven times since joining Bayern in 2009.

"We have worked for this since the start of the year and we have a super squad".
