He has hailed the final as the best day of his career, and praised Hans Flick for his impact on the team which had previously been toiling in the first half of the campaign.
“It is the biggest day of my career. I can’t describe what it means to be on the pitch with a team like this one," he told Bayern's official site.
“Winning a title like that with brothers is the best you can achieve. Hansi Flick has given us a very good feeling in the camp and given us a lot of confidence right from the off.
“Each victory has given us more and more confidence. When you make mistakes, someone else makes up for them.
“We weren’t without mistakes (in the final) either, but we had a slight feeling of invincibility. I think we deserved to win this competition.”
Bayern reached the final after destroying Chelsea in the last-16, humiliating Barcelona in the quarter-final, and easing passed Lyon in the semis.
