All Dortmund needed to do was match Bayern result to clinch the title but fell 2-0 goal win at home to Mainz. Dortmund clawed the game back to 2-2 but Bayern beat Cologne’s 2-1 goal win, thanks to Musiala’s late winner. Bellingham missed the game through injury and the midfielder could leave the club this summer.
Bellingham wrote on social media: “I’ve taken some time to reflect on the events on the final day and the entire season. I still can’t believe it went how it did and we couldn’t get ourselves over the line.
“The boys that played gave everything and their efforts cannot be questioned, in an unconditional way, we weren’t decisive enough in the fine margin moments that occur in high-pressure games.
“However, it was devastating to watch my teammates suffer and go through all of this, while I couldn’t impact the outcome. I have never enjoyed an atmosphere like the one on Saturday created by your fans, I had goosebumps for the whole 90 minutes whilst only watching from the bench. Many times this season you have been the difference maker for us and in the end we’ve let you down by not being able to deliver the championship whilst it was in our hands. “I hope that this adversity will trigger a new era for the club where it can compete closely for trophies every year. This is what the city and its fans deserve.”
