News : FC Bayern is German soccer champion for the 31st time – sport
The team of coach Hansi Flick can no longer be displaced from first place two weeks before the end of the season – for the Munich team it is the ninth championship in a row.
FC Bayern Munich celebrates its 31st championship title in the Bundesliga. Because pursuers RB Leipzig failed at Borussia Dortmund, the lead of coach Hansi Flick’s team two game days before the end of the season – and before Bayern’s game against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the evening (from 6.30 p.m. in the live ticker on SZ.de) – can no longer be caught .
It is the ninth Munich championship in a row and a final triumph for coach Flick, who will leave Bayern at the end of the season. In his only one and a half year tenure, he has given the club seven titles. Flick took over FC Bayern after coach Niko Kovac was dismissed in November 2019.
For attacker Thomas Müller and defender David Alaba it is the tenth championship title, making them the record champions among the players. For Bayern, who managed the triple last season, the championship is the only title win this year. In the DFB Cup they were eliminated in the 2nd round against the second division Holstein Kiel. And in the Champions League they failed as defending champions in the quarter-finals at Paris Saint-Germain.
Julian Nagelsmann will be the new Bayern coach for the next season, who is moving from RB Leipzig to Munich for a high transfer fee.
