Jamal Musiala scored the goal that secured Bayern Munich their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title. The 20-year-old perhaps won’t score a more important goal in his career and speaking after the game, Musiala spoke of the incredible moment and his emotions.
“It’s definitely an amazing feeling,” said Musiala. “After our struggles this season, to actually win the league is amazing. It was an incredible moment. I didn’t think too much about it, I just celebrated it. It took at least a minute until I checked it.
“I had to give everything, we had nothing to lose. It wasn’t a good season for us, we know that, of course. We are extremely happy to have won the title, though. We are going to really celebrate now.”
After Köln’s Dejan Ljubicic equalised from the spot in the 81st minute, the Bundesliga title was heading to Dortmund. That was until Musiala scored a winner for Bayern in the final minute, with a superb solo effort that found its way past Marvin Schwäbe in front of the travelling Bayern support.
Musiala enjoyed an excellent season with 12 goals and 13 assists in 33 Bundesliga games. The Germany international has arguably been Bayern’s best player this season in a campaign that has included some below-par performances from the Rekordmeister.
After Bayern Munich’s triumph, the club confirmed the dismissal of CEO Oliver Kahn and Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidžić with planning for next season already taking place.
