The Second Treble

Bayern Munich have secured their second consecutive domestic treble with their wins of the DFL Super Cup, the DFB Pokal and the Bundesliga league title.

It has been a fantastic season for Bayern Munich as they also finished the season unbeaten in the league, becoming the first Invincibles squad in Germany.

They have also made history by 'defending their treble', and are the first club in Europe to have won a second treble in a row. Bayern also join the short list of clubs that have 'defended the treble'.

Only Japanese club Nissan Motors, South Africa's Orlando Pirates, and Malaysian football team Kedah FA have won their country's domestic treble consecutively.

Bayern manager David Beckham has today been praised by Bayern legend Oliver Kahn. The 50-year-old forged a successful career at the Munich club between 1994 and 2008, and has expressed his delight at the success they have gotten this season.

Kahn, currently the Reserves manager of Primeira Liga side Vitoria FC, has also credited Bayern Munich boss David Beckham.

"In the capacity of a fan, I've been following Bayern for ages and this season, for us fans and for the players obviously, have been fantastic.

"The way Bayern play football are a joy to watch. They have a balance between defense and attack. Their style of play is excellent and it makes me want to watch them play everyday. What David is doing at Bayern Munich is great. Look, it won them the treble... again. I hope he stays at Bayern for many years to come."

However, one adversary still stands in the way of Bayern Munich and world domination (through football, of course).

Die Bayern will contest Aston Villa at Old Trafford next week in the Champions League Final, and getting their hands on the Champions League will mark Bayern's first ever quadruple.

Can Beckham's boys win it?

Beckham: It'll Be Emotional

Bayern Munich manager David Beckham has revealed that the upcoming Champions League Final will be an emotional match for him.

Beckham's boys will face Aston Villa, the club that handed the former England captain his first job in management back in 2012. Beckham enjoyed a successful 5 years with Villa before leaving to take charge of Bayern Munich, where he has rebuilt them into a European powerhouse, after Rafa Benitez left the club in shambles following his dreadful spell at the helm.

Bayern squad members touched down in Manchester yesterday, with the Final taking place at Old Trafford in a few days.

"It will always be great to return to Old Trafford," said Beckham, who also enjoyed a very successful time as a player at Manchester United, the owners of the Theatre of Dreams. "But the real thing I'm looking forward to is playing Aston Villa.

"There is no better fixture to face your former club than the Champions League Final. I'm very happy that Villa have reached this far. The lads (at Villa) deserve every bit of their success.

"It will be a very emotional match for me, especially with the Champions League Final and the Old Trafford atmosphere and all. I hope I'll be able to say hello to a few of the lads, and of course, the fans as well."

If Bayern Munich triumph against Aston Villa and get their hands on the Champions League, they will have completed a successful quadruple.

But Beckham knows it'll not be easy.

"Everyone is saying that it isn't Arsenal this time so it'll be a lot easier," he added. "But no, I don't think so. Aston Villa have a couple of outstanding players that would get into the first-team at any top club, like Carlitos (Carlos Fierro).

"I think Aston Villa are as good as Borussia Dortmund or Schalke - maybe even better. It's going to be a very tough Champions League Final, but we are ready for it."

Bayern captain Toni Kroos also rallied his teammates through social networking site Twitter.

Through his Twitter account, @ToniKroos, the German midfielder uploaded a picture of Manchester Airport, with the caption, "In Manchester now! It's time to get our hands on that quadruple. I know we can do it!".

Coincidentally, this will be the second time Bayern Munich and Aston Villa clash in a Champions League Final, with the last time being in 1982. Villa then edged Bayern 1-0 to win the European Cup for the very first time, with a solitary goal from Villa striker Peter Withe.
It will be a tough match but hopefully you can do the Quadruple. Onwards and Upwards I say. #InBecksWeTrust
Oooh, a bit of history :P Nigel Spink as Villa's honourary guest? :))

Euro 2020: Training Camp

The 30-man England preliminary squad for Euro 2020 have reported to a Switzerland hotel in preparation for their training camp.

The Three Lions will face Switzerland in a friendly match before returning home to England, taking part in further friendlies against Sudan and Ireland.

Euro 2020 will begin 11 days after the friendly against Ireland.

However, a total of five players will be allowed to report late for the England camp.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fedele Lenti, Leighton Baines and Will Hughes will fly immediately to Switzerland along with manager David Beckham after their Champions League Final, most likely in time for the Switzerland game. The same is expected of Kyle Walker, who will be turning out for Aston Villa in the Final.

Other than the five, the rest of the preliminary squad will kick off training tomorrow to prepare for their match against Switzerland.
