Bayern coach Flick the key to latest Bundesliga triumph
(AP Photo/Martin Meissner, Pool)BERLIN Bayern Munich effectively won the Bundesliga title in November when it appointed Hansi Flick as coach. Bayerns defensive record was its worst since Jrgen Klinsmann was coach in 2008. Kovac had led Bayern to a league and cup double the season before but never had the full backing of the clubs leadership. Bayern is currently on a 14-game winning run including the 3-0 win over Chelsea in London in the Champions League. There are also other reasons Bayern has won an unprecedented eight consecutive title, mostly tied to the clubs financial might.

Alphonso Davies and Thomas Mller have built an effective and affectionate partnership this season, and it's driving Bayern Munich toward a record-extending eighth straight German title. I call him Chef, Davies said in televised comments after Mller broke the German league record with his 20th assist of the season Saturday. Bayern is also eyeing another German double, with Frankfurt again their opponent in the cup semifinal Wednesday, and the Champions League whenever that resumes. The Champions League is set to resume as a mini-tournament this summer.
