In celebrating the historic moment, the players and the coaches were spotted dancing and drinking in the dressing room.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media, Boniface is seen showering his manager with a jar of beer as they enjoyed the moment.

Alonso's men remain unbeaten throughout the current campaign with Sunday's 5-0 demolishing of Werder Bremen extending the run to 43 matches with defeat.

The new Bundesliga champions are on course for an unprecedented treble, having already booked a place in the final of the DFB Pokal and look to have a feat in the semi-final of the UEFA Europa League.

Meanwhile, Boniface has been instrumental to the team's success, scoring 18 goals and providing 9 assists in 27 matches, per Transfermarkt.
