Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich was happy to have fans back in the building to celebrate with the team and also able to see history made when Robert Lewandowski broke Gerd Müller’s Bundesliga goal scoring record.

“It was a step in the right direction. We all look forward to the return of the fans. The 250 fans have already made a difference,” Kimmich said (as captured by Tz). “I used to think that when you work at FC Bayern, it will be boring at some point when you become a champion so often. But that’s not it. It’s always something special.”

As for Lewandowski, Kimmich is still astounded by the Polish scoring machine.

“To score 41 goals in 29 games is unbelievable, phenomenal. I think this record will never be broken again. If so, Robert will do it again,” Kimmich said.

Even with all of the celebrations, Kimmich knows there was a tinge of sadness associated with the day. Kimmich saw a group of friends and mentors all leave the club, including David Alaba.

“David has become a very good friend of mine, our families are also very good friends and he made Munich a piece of home for us,” Kimmich said. “That makes it difficult for me that he leaves the club. We were very close.”
