Hitzfeld happy to wait on celebrations

Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld is refusing to accept his side have been crowned champions of Germany until it is mathematically confirmed.

Bayern´s 4-1 win over Stuttgart on Sunday opened up a 12 point advantage at the top of the Bundesliga with four games remaining. Allied to their far superior goal difference over their rivals, the Bavarians are all but home and hosed.

"I am convinced that nothing will happen [to prevent Bayern becoming champions], but we are patient and we will delay our celebrations until the right moment," said the 59-year-old, who is on the verge of his seventh Bundesliga title.
