Bayern Munich beat Paris St-Germain in a nail-biting Champions League final in Lisbon and reign as European champions for the sixth time and treble winners for the second time in the club’s 120-year history. The match-winner was scored on the hour mark by Kingsley Coman.
Head coach Hansi Flick has been in charge of the side for 10 months, having replaced Niko Kovac in November 2019, and also guided them to the Bundesliga and German League Cup this season. As part of the celebrations, he was thrown up in the air by his players. Flick signed a new three-year contract in April.
The head coach described his side’s journey as “crazy” as well as being proud of the team. “We deserved to win, because of the second half. You could already see in training at our winter camp in January that something big was growing. The team just has this overwhelming will to win.”
The shining star of Bayern Munich was their keeper Manuel Neuer, who performed outstandingly during the first-half duels against Neymar and made saves that secured the team’s victory.
The 34-year-old man of the match commented: “That was what we deserved and what we wished for. It was really hard work.”
Many congratulations to the European champions!
