Lahm revels in Bayern ´dream´

12 May 2013 12:21

Bayern Munich's title-winning campaign has left Philipp Lahm feeling as though he is living in a dream.

The Bayern captain and his team-mates celebrated the club's 22nd Bundesliga crown on Saturday following a 3-0 victory over Augsburg.

The title had been wrapped up with a record-breaking six games to spare but coach Jupp Heynckes and his players were made to wait until the final home game of a remarkable campaign to get their hands on the trophy.

Lahm, who has been a regular fixture in the champions' back four this season, was delighted to earn the honour of a fifth Bundesliga title.

"It's sensational, dreamlike," he said. "I couldn't imagine anything better. It's always special to be a champion."

The Allianz Arena outfit still have the matter of a UEFA Champions League final against German rivals and Bundesliga runners-up Borussia Dortmund to contend with on May 25.

But Lahm does not think the celebrations will need to be curtailed, even with such a big game on the horizon.

"We are going to be celebrating properly," the 29-year-old said. "The team had to refrain from celebrating for weeks. We celebrate because we know what this is about.

"Then there is a two-week break so the team is allowed to let loose and celebrate freely because two weeks is easily enough time to recover."

Those sentiments were echoed by goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who is revelling in the first Bundesliga title of his career.

"It's a great feeling, definitely, and being able to celebrate in front of the fans, that's amazing," he said.

"Yes, we can definitely party today and we don't have to do so in first gear."
