On the sidelines of the Bundesliga duel between Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Bayern Munich (live ticker), the fans of the foals sharply criticized the Bayern bosses.
The Gladbach attachment targeted the Qatar sponsorship of the record champions. “Mia san mia: Ignore members’ interests to court the Emir,” read a banner just inside a gate.
FC Bayern has been advertising Qatar Airport on the sleeve of its jersey for several years. The sponsorship is a thorn in the side of many Bayern fans, but has always been defended by the bosses. According to media reports, FCB should collect 25 million euros annually from Qatar.
However, the sponsorship contract expires next summer. So far it is unclear whether the partnership will continue.
