Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says, "It never happened before that one club got the title with both teams at the same time."

Munich mayor Dieter Reiter hosted the players for a reception before their balcony appearance. Thomas Mueller and Bastian Schweinsteiger then led chants and supporters showed their appreciation for the German league title clinched with four games to spare.

Bayern lost in the semifinals of the German Cup and Champions League but Rummenigge says, "We're very happy about how the season went. When I see the media, most don't know what it means to be German champions. There's a lack of respect."
