It has happened again! Mere weeks after Bundesliga became the first major domestic football league to restart, Bayern Munich has already been crowned champions. Their victory against Werder Bremen ensured the title win: their 30th in the German top division. It seems that even the coronavirus lockdown could not stop Bayern Munich’s incredible dominance as the champions turned victorious in eight consecutive games in all competitions since the restart of German football last month.

Amongst the team, certain players have been pinpointed by experts and fans to be the leaders behind the league win. They include Alphonso Davies, the Canadian speedster without whom the team looks incomplete even as Davies is a relatively recent addition to the squad, having joined  Bayern only in 2018.

Thomas Muller, who with the title win, equalled club legend Frank Ribery’s record of winning the most Bundesliga trophies at 9, has had a brilliant season. Mostly used as a substitute under Niko Kovac, interim coach Hansi Flick’s trust in him has given him a nearly permanent place in the starting eleven. Muller has returned the gift with 7 goals and a nearly record-breaking 20 assists. “Radio Paehl” has returned to his jokey post-match interviews since the vocal criticizing days under Kovac.

Robert Lewandowski is, of course, as prolific as ever, having scored as many as 31 league goals and 46 in all competitions. Golden Cannon, the prize given to the highest scorer of Bundesliga will pass to Lewandowski the fifth time. Only Gerd Muller has more at seven.

Most praise has been going to 55 year old Hansi Flick, the former Bayern midfielder turned interim coach. Taking hold of the team after the sacking of Niko Kovac, he has ensured unity in the team and has exceeded expectations by leading Bayern to a dominant Bundesliga win. With this title win, he becomes one of the three Bayern coach to have also won the title as a club player, joining the iconic Franz Beckenbauer and Kovac. This is even more surprising with the knowledge of the fact that Flick has had no experience as a head coach of a Bundesliga coach before leading Bayern.

“Since Hansi Flick took over the team we are playing attractive and successful football. We can only pay him and the team a big compliment. We wanted to give our fans titles but also to delight with attacking football. We succeeded in that,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented.

The moment-deprived Twitterati has lit up at Bayern’s title victory, with tweets ranging from funny to informative, with emphasis on Bayern’s continuous dominance over the league. Here’s the best:
