Bayern Munich have received praise from Germany’s national team manager Joachim Loew after they managed to seal the Bundesliga title with a record seven matches remaining in the campaign. Bayern Munich have been the dominant team in Bundesliga for the last two years, but they have achieved a new level of consistency after the arrival of Pep Guardiola. The former Barcelona manager has guided the team to their second consecutive league title with seven matches remaining. They have managed to beat the previous record – set by Bayern Munich themselves last season – of sealing the title with six matches to go.
Loew, who is under pressure to at least finals of the World Cup 2014, has said that this is great news for the German national team, which takes most of its players from Bayern Munich. He says that this title should give them a lot of confidence to dominate German football for the next few years. After winning the treble – including the Champions League – last season, Bayern Munich will be looking to do the unprecedented by retaining it. The club has already won two titles this campaign with the Bundesliga title being the third.
There are still two more trophies to play for before the end of the campaign. Bayern sealed the title after a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin.
“To win the title at such an early stage is an unbelievable achievement by Bayern. Congratulations to Bayern, and above all to coach Pep Guardiola. He has improved the team even further, and you can see his mark on their dominance and ball possession. I’m naturally happy for our national team players at Bayern – the title should give them a further boost,” said Loew. Key players for the German team like Toni Kroos and Philipp Lahm have shined throughout this campaign.
