Munich - The international press have had their say. Even boxing heavyweight Wladimir Klitschko has given his two pennies' worth, but the acclaim just keeps coming for the Bundesliga.

European Sports Media (ESM) is the latest in a long line of reputable names to acknowledge German football's ground-shaking impact on the game, selecting no less than nine Bundesliga players in its April Top-11.

Bundesliga-dominated XI


FC Bayern septet Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Dante, David Alaba, Thomas Müller, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez are joined by the unsung hero of Borussia Dortmund's UEFA Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid, Ilkay Gündogan, as well as four-goal marksman Robert Lewandowski.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, formerly of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie complete the line-up, but with the Champions League final now just 17 days away, you could find yourselves washing down that all-German delight with an all-Bundesliga ESM XI in four weeks' time.
