The ending of Bayern Munich’s 6-0 win against Hoffenheim this afternoon is sure to go down in football history.
With the Bavarians leading by six goals, BBC Sport report that Bayern’s ultras unveiled an offensive banner regarding Hoffenheim president Dietmar Hopp.
The banner sparked action from Bayern manager Hansi Flick, the boss was joined in pleading the ultras to put away the banner by former players and current members of the club’s staff Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn.
The referee sent the players into the tunnel for 10 minutes before the banner was removed. The play once the teams returned was the strangest thing we’ve ever seen.
The teams passed the ball between each other for the final thirteen minutes of the clash, with players casually talking to one another and some even doing kick ups until the final whistle blew.
Take a look at the bizarre ending to the clash below:
