What did Muller say about Bayern's success?

"That's wonderful. As Bayern Munich you compete to become German champion. You have to put it on the field first," Muller told reporters after the game.

"Becoming German champion is simply the most beautiful thing. Champions League is just the icing on the cake. The fans go to the stadium for the Bundesliga. Kingsley has won the championship in each of its seasons.

"It's not boring, it's outstanding.  When you see how we played in the first half against Dortmund. You always have to go the maximum. I have to keep proving myself. It cannot be taken for granted that this always works."
