“Of course, we have two [more] important trophies we are aiming at. We are in the DFB-Pokal Cup final, and we are also in the [UEFA] Europa League quarter-finals. So it doesn’t stop here. So we have to push hard. We know we won the league, it’s a big achievement for us. But we also have two things [trophies] we are aiming at. So if we can have the perfect three, of course we will celebrate more,” he continued.

Boniface was among the players who called in to celebrate Osimhen following his Scudetto Victory, not knowing his own would be coming so soon.
