Taking to Twitter, Rahul wrote, "For more reasons than one, it's been a season like no other! Even though it's the last match day, thank you @Bundesliga_EN  for bringing football back to us Great players, great games and even greater motivation to win the next season! @BlackYellow"

Earlies last week, Bayern lifted their eight consecutive Bundesliga title after Robert Lewandowski, voted player of the season on Saturday, scored the winner against Werder Bremen. They finished the season with 79 points from 33 games winning 25 and losing only four. 

Dortmund, meanwhile, settled for the second spot after their win against RB Leipzig in June 20, with 69 points from as many matches laced with 21 wins.
