All Whites midfielder Sarpreet Singh finally has his hands on the Bundesliga trophy, as Bayern Munich ended the German season with a 4-0 win over Wolfsburg on Sunday (NZ time). 

Singh was an unused substitute in the win, where Kingsley Coman, Mickael Cuisance, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller all scored. 

Lewandowski finished the season with 34 goals, a Bundesliga record. 

Last week, Bayern were declared champions for the eighth consecutive season, but had to wait until the final game of the season to lift the trophy. 

With no families, fans or friends in the stands at Volkswagen Arena to share their joy, the Bayern players were left to celebrate with just a handful of club bosses.

Singh posted photos of the Bundesliga trophy on social media afterwards. 

"Blessed to be part of this team," he said. "Champions." 

Nearly a year has passed since Singh signed with the German champions, after impressive performances for New Zealand at the U20 World Cup in Poland.

In December, he made his Bundesliga debut for Bayern, playing eight minutes off the bench against Werder Bremen to become the first Kiwi since Wynton Rufer in the mid-90s to play in the competition. 

Last Sunday, he played 64 minutes in his first start for the team against Freiburg.

While two appearances for the entire season might not seem like much, that's two more than most people expected when he first signed with the team. 

Singh has also played for Bayern II, Munich's reserve side that play in the German third division. 

Bayern will compete against rivals Bayer Leverkusen in the DFL-Pokal final next week, before turning their attention towards the Champions League campaign, with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final to be played in Lisbon, Portugal in August.
