  • Bayern Munich have held their victory parade after winning a German Double 
  • The whole squad showed off their silverware in the famous Marienplatz centre 
  • Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery addressed the fans for the final time as players 
  • Both wingers were reduced to tears during the emotional farewell 

The stars of Bayern Munich took to the centre of their historic city on Sunday afternoon to parade the silverware amassed over yet another successful season.

Bayern finished the campaign by pulling off a domestic double with the Bundesliga title and the German Cup.

After a season-long battle against rivals Borussia Dortmund the Bavarians emerged on top, and the afternoon was spent both relishing the season while also saying farewell to two teary club legends.

Wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are departing the club following long tenures, during which they helped Munich become one of the most dominant sides in European football.

Making their final address to supporters, Ribery and Robben were afforded special attention upon a podium in the city’s Marienplatz centre.

Wearing sunglasses, Robben coolly spoke to supporters before passing the microphone over to Ribery.

The Dutchman luckily escaped the emotion, but his French team-mate was not quite so fortunate.

Ribery was seen struggling to speak as supporters began to chant his name, before clutching his hand to his face and attempting to fight back the tears.

The surrounding area was bathed in a sea of red shirts and flags, as the masses came out to celebrate yet another year of Bayern dominance.

Niko Kovac’s team now look to the future, and will act to replace Robben and Ribery in the summer transfer window.

The club hold a long-standing interest in Chelsea wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi, after having multiple bids knocked back in January.

Manchester City’s Leroy Sane also remains an option, with the German forward growing disillusioned after falling down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola.
