Pep Guardiola’s third and final Bundesliga season concluded with a 3-1 Bayern win over last-place Hannover 96 before one last celebratory beer fight at the Allianz Arena for the departing manager. And David Alaba showed no mercy.
No one’s lower back is safe with little Philipp Lahm around.
Before the match, Guardiola was given some kind of odd parting gift depicting Bayern mascot Berni the bear standing atop the Allianz Arena. The message here seems to be “We were treble winners before you arrived and now we’re not, but, hey…at least you tried.”
Pep will have one more chance to lift a trophy for Bayern in the DFB Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund before he leaves for Manchester City and the Premier League — a place sadly devoid of beer splashing title celebrations.
