Thomas Mueller about …

… winning the German championship: “We really wanted to. There was a lot of frustration. We were able to get that off our chests. Now it’s wonderful.

The Champions League is just the icing on the cake. The fans go to the stadium for the Bundesliga.”

… the growing boredom in the Bundesliga: “The Kingsley has won the championship in each of its seasons. It’s not boring, it’s outstanding. The Corona period has damaged the Bundesliga teams.
