Jamaal Musiala was the hero of the day after he scored the decisive winner at the RheinEnergie Stadion while leaders Dortmund dropped two points at home following a 2-2 draw against Mainz.

The results saw Bayern leapfrog the Black and Yellows to seal the title for the 11th consecutive time.

However, their CEO Kahn was not at the Koln stadion to party with the Bavarians, with reports of his sack coming out after the games.

Kahn has now taken to his social media account to provide some insights into his absence, stating that he was forbidden from Koln while congratulating the club on their title win.

“Unbelievable! A big compliment and congratulations guys,” Kahn stated on his official Twitter account.


“I always told you so! Always give everything to the end and never give up. I am incredibly proud of you and this achievement!

“I would like to celebrate with you, but unfortunately I can't be with you today because the club has forbidden me,” he added.
