Best quotes of the 2014/15 Bundesliga season

The 2014/15 Bundesliga season is over. There was drama from the first to the last matchday and - as always - there were some brilliant quotes from head coaches and players. We've translated the best of the best.

The season that was

"Papa picked up an injury. After that he said a few odd things."
Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno after his collision with teammate Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

"That was one of the clearest penalties you'll see all season. My jersey is two sizes bigger now."

"I can't listen to myself always saying the same s***."

"Right now, I'm not puzzled, but I'm also not a Messiah. Or do I have sandals on?"
