Bayern Munich and Germany the winners

Bayern’s celebrations lasted until daybreak and almost everybody turned into a reveller of the ilk of their former coach Louis van Gaal.

On May 25, a German club will win the Champions League of the European Football Association, UEFA, for the first time since 2001.

FCB: Planning for Wembley

When the great evening in the Champions League was over, the players and officials of FC Bayern Munich found it hard to grasp the master-class result.

Seventeen days after the club had ascertained their 23rd German championship title and one week after reaching the national DFB Cup final for the 19th time, FC Bayern took a giant step towards London.

New start at Bayern Munich with Matthias Sammer

Bayern Munich has now failed to win a title for the past two seasons. In May 2012, the record German champions had to content themselves with three runners-up spots. But Bayern wouldn’t be Bayern if they didn’t quickly take action to reverse the situation. The Munich club has dropped a bombshell just before the players report back for pre-season training as Matthias Sammer, European champion in 1996 and voted Europe’s Player of the Year in the same year, has moved to Bayern from his position as director of football at the German Football Association (DFB) ...

At Borussia Dortmund, who are on their way to a successful title defence, the word “championship” is again a word they don’t like to hear. It’s because the reigning German champions are being chased by Bayern Munich, the record champions and indisputably – long term over the past decades – the dominant club in Germany. However, Bayern have outlawed certain words themselves. “Semifinals” or even “final” when used in connection with the Champions League are frowned upon. But things are looking rosy on the European stage since Wednesday, 28 March ...

A Franck Ribery assist led to Arjen Robben becoming the scorer of the last goal in 2011 ...
