Hansi Flick’s side secured the eighth consecutive Bundesliga champion title with a victory at Werder Bremen in the middle of the week. Dortmund now finished in five of those eight seasons, with a 2-0 Saturday win at third-placed RB Leipzig, ensuring they secured second place again.
Bayern Munich’s title win was the same sh*t
Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Braut Haaland quite clearly spoke his feelings about Bayern Munich’s title win, saying it was “sh*t” that Bavarian giants had become champions once again. Hansi Flick’s side secured the eighth consecutive Bundesliga champion title with a victory at Werder Bremen in the middle of the week. Dortmund now finished in five of those eight seasons, with a 2-0 Saturday win at third-placed RB Leipzig, ensuring they secured second place again. Haaland continued his excellent form in a Dortmund T-shirt with both goals to bring his score to 16 goals in 17 matches since his January transfer from RB Salzburg. But this did not comfort the Norwegian, who did not like the second place.
Gio Reyna – The youngest American to score in the Bundesliga
“First of all, this is, of course, sh*t that Bayern won,” he told reporters. “But that how it is now, and we must do everything possible out from it. And soon, we secured a second-place but tried to get as close to them as possible. Saturday’s game was also noteworthy because it had the first start of the Bundesliga for Giovanni Reyna. The 17-year-old son of the former US international, Claudio Reyna, spent his youth career at FC New York City until joining the Dortmund Academy in 2019 and continued to exert significant influence at Signal Iduna Park. The midfielder was the youngest American to score in the Bundesliga when he made his debut in January against 17 Augsburg and 66 days, breaking the record previously held by Christian Pulisic.
Since then, he has played 17 matches for the club in all competitions. Of course, he looked at home in the German top flight on his first start, demonstrating a grand vision to set up Haaland for his starting goal and earn the praise of his teammate after the game. “I have called him the American dream before, and it is true,” added Haaland. “He is 17 years old, and what he does on the field is amazing. He has a great future.” Dortmund will end their 2019-20 Bundesliga season at home to Hoffenheim next Saturday.
