It’s no longer news that Bayern Munich has won the Champions League after seeing off Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Even though Neymar was in tears, the Brazilian insists losing is part of the game. In fact, he wanted to congratulate the German side after their victory but made a huge error in doing so as he left out the “n”. This means he hailed Bayer Leverkusen instead.
In a tweet which was in Portuguese, the Brazilian explained, “Losing is part of the sport, we try everything, we fight until the end. Thank you for the support and affection of each one of you and CONGRATULATIONS to BAYER.”
Perder faz parte do esporte, tentamos de tudo, lutamos até o final. Obrigado pelo apoio e carinho de cada um de vocês 🙏🏽 e PARABÉNS ao BAYER 👏🏽

However, Leverkusen responded to the tweet on time via their official Twitter account, which reads: “Obrigado @neymarjr. I’m not sure why you congratulate me if I’m on vacation playing FIFA, but thanks.”
Obrigado, @neymarjr! 😍😭🙌
No sé bien porqué me felicitas si ando de vacaciones echando el FIFA… pero gracias 😂 pic.twitter.com/AdoYyZL3dS

Bayern Munich has now won their sixth Champions League title after crushing all clubs that came their way including the 1–0 win over Paris St Germain (PSG) in the final on Sunday. It was Kingsley Coman who scored the only goal in the 59th minute of the final.
If you recall, the final was to be played in Istanbul in May but was eventually taken to Lisbon.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich now holds the record for the longest consecutive win in Champions League history after winning 11 consecutive games.
