Hansi Flick, Bayern Munich head coach had hailed the “crazy” development of his treble-winning team in the ten months. Ever since he took charge after the German giants won Sunday’s Champions League final, Bayern won the European title for the sixth time in the history of the club with a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

The squad had celebrated it by launching Flick into the air after lifting the trophy. It was sealed with a second-half header from winger Kingsley Coman, which happened to be a product of the PSG academy. On the other end, Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer went on to deny a string of chances by PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Flick, who took charge when Niko Kovac was sacked said, “I am proud of the team. When I saw the headlines in November, all I read was that nobody is afraid of Bayern anymore.” He went on adding onto it by saying, “The development since then has been crazy.”

Bayern Munich did beat PSG 1-0 to complete only the second treble in their history and that lift their sixth Champions League with a new record altogether. In a strange final courtesy, an unexpected tournament format in an unprecedented year took place. Bayern Munich was seen to be winning the Champions League and it almost felt like a foregone conclusion. Bayern Munich had completed only the second treble in the history by beating the first-time finalists Paris Saint Germain 1-0 in Sunday’s final so as to underline the status as Germany’s super club. Bayern, who had cruised to the final in Lisbon, had ultimately lifted their sixth trophy with a new record – that is, of becoming the first club to have won all their 11 matches in the Champions League.

Robert Lewandowski has ended the 2019-20 season as the Champions League’s top scorer with 15 goals. Dortmund chief execurive Hans-Joachim Watzke in the wake of the 8-2 quarter-final drubbing of Barcelona grumbled, “We don’t have to say anything more about Bayern Munich, because their opponents will no longer be beaten but destroyed.”
