Wigan were banned from toasting their FA Cup triumph with a drop or two of bubbly because of their impending league commitments but there were no such restraints on Bayern Munich after lifting the Bundesliga trophy on Saturday.




The German giants still have a chance of recording the treble as they still have to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final and Stuggart in the DFB Pokal final.

But the beer literally poured in the Allianz Arena as outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes and his players were doused with the traditional beer shower after a 3-0 win over Augsburg on Saturday, when the club finally received the trophy for its 23rd German championship. 


Goals from Thomas Mueller, Xherdan Shaqiri and Luiz Gustavo ensured Bayern - which wrapped up the title with a record six games to spare - scored for the 36th consecutive Bundesliga game, equaling its own record set between May 1973 and May 1974.

'No other team in the history of the Bundesliga has played football the way we've played this year, consistently at a high level. That makes me proud,' said outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who was doused with the traditional beer showers by his players.

'You know the wheat-beer showers are included at Bayern. At least I avoided pulling a hamstring,' Heynckes said.

Heynckes, who turned 68 on Thursday, is being replaced by former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola next season.
