The Bavarians' trainer lauded the resilience and commitment of his players in Saturday's convincing victory over the Swabians at the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has praised his players for their professional attitude in their 2-0 win over Stuttgart.

The Bavarians cruised to an easy 2-0 victory over Bruno Labbadia's men, courtesy of goals by Mario Gomez and Thomas Muller, as goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt made his last home appearance for the Champions League finalists.

Heynckes reserved special praise for the veteran, who is set to retire in the summer after four years with the club.

"It wasn’t exactly easy for my players to switch their attention back to the Bundesliga, although I have to say they were very professional and their attitude was very good, especially those who don’t have the rhythm of playing regularly," Heynckes is quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"Both teams had chances in the first half. In his farewell match, Butt prevented us going behind with some great saves.

"If Ivica Olic had taken the chances that came his way in the second half, we’d have seen it through to the end with much less hassle."

Meanwhile, Butt took time to thank the club and the fans for the lovely farewell from the Allianz Arena.

"A game like that is obviously fantastic as a way to round off a playing career. Now, I’m looking forward to the two finals, just like the rest of the team."
