Bayern Munich defender, Alphonso Davies has heaped praises on his teammate Robert Lewandowski after his goal helped them to seal their eighth consecutive league title on Tuesday.
The Bavarians recorded a 1-0 victory over Werder Bremen who are fighting for survival at the other end of the table in a near-empty stadium.
Lewandowski chested down Jerome Boateng’s chipped pass to net the only goal of the game and seal the league title with two games to spare.
“We call him ‘Lewangoalski’ for that reason,” the left-back said. “He’s a top striker, the top in the world. Coming in and scoring 31 goals, it’s unbelievable.”
Davies was sent off with 11 minutes remaining, while Werder Bremen’s late appeal for a penalty was turned down.
“Unfortunately, anger comes into play,” he explained. “I got a yellow card, apologies for that. The second yellow card, I don’t know what happened, I tried to run backward, he came into me.
“It’s the referee’s decision, so I apologise to everyone. That’s not the FC Bayern way, but I’m happy we can win the championship.”
