Franck Ribery hailed a “special” moment as he and Arjen Robben both scored in their final game at the Allianz Arena on Saturday to wrap up a 5-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt and a seventh successive Bundesliga title.

“It’s a special moment, but also a difficult one,” Ribery told Sky. “These were my last moments at the Allianz Arena, with the fans and with my team, after being here for 12 years.”

The fairy-tale farewell for club legends Robben and Ribery saw Bayern end an unusually tight title race two points ahead of rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Nine points behind Dortmund in December, Bayern lost just one game between January and May as they bounced back to be crowned German champions.

Their departure marks the end of a glistening decade of success for Bayern, who are now set for a major squad overhaul ahead of next season.
