Bayern Munich toasts success with Oktoberfest beer
Bayern Munich celebrated its impressive start to the season Sunday at the Oktoberfest, with lederhosen-clad players joining coaching staff and directors in toasting the club's success with beer.
''The players deserve it,'' said coach Jupp Heynckes, who told Bayern's website that his players would not go overboard with their celebrations.
''They're players who are absolutely professional. They know exactly what they can do and what they shouldn't do.''
Hoffenheim ended Bayern's 10 game winning streak in all competitions with a 0-0 draw Saturday, but the Bundesliga leader has scored 28 goals in its last 11 games - and conceded none.
Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has not let a goal past for 1,018 minutes, breaking the previous club record of Oliver Kahn by five minutes and counting.
''We worked hard in the last weeks and months - you're allowed reward yourself from time to time,'' said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.
