- Bayern run out comfortable 3-1 winners over Hannover.
- Guardiola delights in "intense" performance.
- Hopes to add DFB Cup crown to Bundesliga title triumph.
The party is just getting started for 25-time Bundesliga champions FC Bayern München following their curtain-closing win against relegated Hannover 96 at the Allianz Arena.
Pep Guardiola (Bayern head coach): "It was a lovely day. Normally, these games are uncomfortable and boring because the concentration levels are not as high, but it was a fantastic game, we played with high intensity. The beer shower was cold and smelly, but it's nice. Now we'll celebrate for a day and then prepare for our DFB Cup final against Dortmund."
Arturo Vidal (Bayern midfielder): "Celebrating winning the Bundesliga for the first time with my guy. Thanks to my wife and sons for being with me through the good times and the bad."
More from Vidal: "My main aim was to win the Bundesliga and next week we have the German Cup final. The Champions League may have eluded us this time around, but I hope we win the treble next season. I’m happy [to be the first Chilean to win the Bundesliga]. It’s something important. I could have been champion with Leverkusen, but I came back here and I am now.
Obviously, I won four titles in a row in Italy, so I’m really happy now [to have done it again]. It’s been a great season. I’ve really grown as a player here by playing in such a good team - a team that is, for me, the best in the world. At the start it was tough as it was different to Italian football, but I ended the season at 100 per cent, which people could see - and that’s something that makes me very happy.
There’s not much time to rest, but I’ll have three or four days of rest and re-gaining my energy for the Copa America. We have to show what made us the best side in the Americas last time out. We can’t rest any players. The Chile national team has to get used to winning trophies. We’ve got to have the best players on the pitch in every tournament and every game.
The important thing for Charles [Aranguiz] is that he keeps scoring, that he keeps playing because he’s a really important player for us and for his club. Obviously I hope it continues to go well for him in Leverkusen and that he can be at his best right from the off next season. I’m really happy [with the season]. I’m not 100 per cent happy because my aim at the start of the season was very ambitious and to try to win all three trophies.
The Champions League eluded me, but coming into the best team in the world and earning my spot was really difficult - not many manage it. I learnt a lot from Guardiola. He’s a coach who really studies the game, who explains things very well and that’s why he’s one of the best coaches in the world. I have a very high opinion of him and I hope he succeeds at Manchester City."
Mario Götze (Bayern midfielder): "Home win. German champions."
Daniel Stendel (Hannover head coach): "We finished strongly again. It's very, very difficult in Munich, but we still wanted to attack and defend high up the pitch. We had one or two chances, so I'm not disappointed. I hope we'll see each other again in two years."
