Muller: ‘This really is an extraordinary feat’

FC Bayern München striker Thomas Muller was over the moon after his side became the first team to win the Bundesliga title for four consecutive seasons.

Bayern secured the title following a 2-1 win over FC Ingolstadt 04, in which Robert Lewandowski scored in the 15th and 32nd minute before Ingolstadt reduced the deficit through a Moritz Hartmann penalty in the 42nd minute.

Even though Bayern were less than convincing during the match, it was enough to see them crowned champions as their closest competitors Borussia Dortmund were stunned 1-0 by Eintracht Frankfurt.

“The team has played an amazing season. Borussia Dortmund have been the best runners-up in Bundesliga history,” Muller told the official Bayern website. “We once more saw that our opponents always give everything against us and force us to get the best out of ourselves. But we have proven to be the strongest in the end. That is why we are incredibly happy with this title.

“Four titles in a row – that has never ever happened before in the Bundesliga. And we have seen some amazing teams throughout the years. This really is an extraordinary feat and we should not be downplaying our achievements. This is such a relief and we are very satisfied.”

Muller played an instrumental role in Bayern’s record-breaking achievement as he scored 20 goals and notched up seven assists in 31 Bundesliga matches.
