But he also thanked everyone, adding that it has been a fantastic 5 years for him and his family, but also for everyone who has worked behind the scenes.
Absolute protagonist was Hannes Tille: 3 MVP awards in as many finals. From backup of captain Angel Trinidad, he took his place and never left the field, in a spectacular excalation that, eventually made him a key player.
And also this game started with two his aces!
On the field VfB Friedrichshafen, after losing first 2 sets both 25:18, without Vincic and with Birnat as setter managed to win third set 25-16.
But the team reached the final of the season very tired.
The hosts in fourth set had to chase until canceling two points to avoid a possibile tie break, closing set and game 27-25.
Berlin thus can celebrate, and the team has shown constant growth, but starting next week it will already be time to plan for the future with a new staff led by Joel Banks.
