Carlo Ancelotti survives his first Bayern beer shower as Philipp Lahm gets his sendoff
May 21, 2017
A 4–1 win over Freiburg finished off Bayern Munich’s fifth consecutive Bundesliga title and both Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso’s career. It also marked the long overdue end of Carlo Ancelotti’s beer-bath virginity.
@MrAncelotti @philipplahm @XabiAlonso .@MrAncelotti: “Me first Weißbier shower was very cold, but it was a lot of fun!” #FCBSCF
Also, David Alaba gave Arjen Robben a new head of hair.
Perfectly timed ?? ? #Mia5anMia
Then Robben passed on the favor.
Cheeky boy, @ArjenRobben ??? #Mia5anMia
Here’s video of the beer tsunami (the GoPro on the glass was an inspired innovation):
Amidst the joy was a bit of sadness as Lahm and Alonso said goodbye
But the casual cool of Ancelotti in lederhosen remains.
Looking good, @MrAncelotti #MiaSanMia https://t.co/4A3H6TgkFn
One final thing you have to see: Manuel Neuer keeping his injured foot elevated while wearing his full kit and waving his hands in the air like he just doesn’t care.
