Bayern were ´a little lucky´ to win Champions League– Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has indicated that Bayern Munich use any fortunate conditions to win the Champions League.

Bayern ended a treble on Saturday, when the second-half header of Kingsley Coman secured a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon.

Hansi Flick ‘s side had already won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal, ending their domestic season in early July, a whole month before the Champions League competition resumed.

“It is difficult to write more history in eight months,” he told ZDF of Flick’s remarkable period in charge.”

“[Bayern were] a little lucky that, amid all the chaos with schedules, their schedule was best suited to the Champions League.”

“At the moment, definitely, one of the absolute, absolute top teams. They are sensationally well equipped.

“They have absolute world-class players in every position and all at the right age.”

“Hansi was lucky enough to have done such a good job as assistant coach to Niko Kovac that he was allowed to stay, and that worked quite well,” Klopp added.

“Both finalists had an absolutely top team available. But Bayern wanted it more – although Paris wanted it very much. Paris really wanted it, you could see it.

“Bayern were lucky, but they didn’t need much. And that’s why they deserved to win. It would be nice if you could play the best game of the season in a final, it’s just very unlikely.”
