FC Bayern, News: Rummenigge with a tough announcement
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented on the failed vote on an investor at the DFL. The new member of the supervisory board of FC Bayern Munich predicts a bleak future for the Bundesliga.
“I’ve been wondering since last Tuesday, where should the investment come from now?”, the 67-year-old explained on the sidelines of the sports business congress SpoBis in Düsseldorf on Tuesday: “Last week, 16 clubs canceled the central marketing of the DFL.”
Of the 36 professional clubs, 20 had voted for an investor entry, 16 decided against a yes vote. The required two-thirds majority was therefore not achieved. The deal would have brought the DFL two billion euros.
For Rummenigge, there was “a lack of solidarity among the 16 clubs” in the vote. That would mean “that you have to recommend your own club, we market ourselves,” was the tough conclusion of the new old Bayern boss.
Although Rummenigge does not wish for a separation between the first and second divisions, “but I wouldn’t rule it out either. Because this vote was a gauntlet that had never existed before in this quality.”
According to Rummenigge, the Bundesliga’s competitiveness is in jeopardy anyway: “We are disastrously positioned in foreign marketing. We once had a forecast of 850 million euros – now we are at 160. The money is missing in every coffer.”
FC Bayern, News: Rummenigge talks about his return
Ex-Bayern-Munich boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge described his comeback with the German record champions in witty words. “When Uli Hoeneß (Honorary President of Bavaria; editor’s note) and Herbert Hainer (President; editor’s note) come and ask. When I look at Hoeneß’s loyal dog eyes, I can hardly say no,” said the longtime club boss, who has now moved to the supervisory board, at the SpoBis in Düsseldorf.
Rummenigge said about the future distribution of managerial tasks at FC Bayern: “We still have a vacancy in the sports area at the moment. As long as the vacancy is open, Uli, I, coach Thomas Tuchel and the new CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen will discuss things.” He’s not worried, the team is basically good.
Last Saturday, Bayern announced the separation of club boss Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic due to the mixed season despite the championship on the last day. As a result, Dreesen was promoted to the new boss, Rummenigge is making a comeback in the Bayern leadership.
The new management will get involved a bit until the sporting vacancy is resolved, “and then we will withdraw again,” said the 67-year-old. Rummenigge said of the mistakes made in the recent past: “After me, things were changed that caused unrest. Also in the team. We had a young coach in Julian Nagelsmann. I’ve always been a friend of experience. The coach , from whom I learned the most, was Jupp Heynckes.”
The former world coach brought in the necessary calm with his experience and brought success back to Bayern: “The most important thing is the team, you have to focus on it and protect it.”
For the former national team captain, it is clear that the coach at Bayern Munich must be involved in squad planning: “We have to become a unit again, the entire club – the team, the coach, the board.”
Winning the Champions League cannot be achieved with huge transfers alone. In the last triumphs in the premier class “we were a very tight-knit bunch”. This was crucial.
FC Bayern, News: FCB threatens a hammer group in the Champions League
FC Bayern Munich is again threatened with a hammer group in the Champions League. This is indicated by the lottery pots that result according to the current status:
raffle 1: Manchester City, Sevilla FC, FC Barcelona, SSC Napoli, FC Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, SL Benfica
Feyenoord Rotterdam and Inter Milan are in last place. The latter club would slip in if they won the Champions League in the final against Manchester City. This also affects lottery pot two. Should Inter lose, they would end up there.
Raffle 2: Real Madrid, Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, Atlético Madrid, RB Leipzig, FC Porto, Arsenal, Inter Milan/Donetsk
Raffle 3: FC Salzburg, AC Milan, Lazio Rome, Red Star Belgrade
Dinamo Zagreb, Glasgow Rangers and Sporting Braga are considered favorites in qualifying, giving them a good chance of a place in pot three. Shakhtar Donetsk is another candidate.
Raffle 4: Real Sociedad San Sebastian Celtic Glasgow Newcastle United Union Berlin RC Lens
Galatasaray, FC Copenhagen and Young Boys Bern also have the best UEFA coefficient in qualifying.
For example, Bayern could meet Real Madrid, AC Milan and Newcastle United. The record champions already had a tough nut to crack this season with FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and Viktoria Pilsen. In the end, however, they clearly prevailed with six wins.
FC Bayern, News: Effenberg warns – FCB should avoid further “unrest”.
Long-time captain Stefan Effenberg sees champions Bayern Munich under considerable time pressure when looking for a new sports director. “If it’s summer or even autumn and there’s no news yet, then the speculation and discussions start again: Who will it be now?” Wrote the 54-year-old in his new column for the news portal t-online.
Bayern should “absolutely avoid” this mistake, otherwise they would have “that permanent unrest like in the last few weeks and months” that began with the dismissal of coach Julian Nagelsmann. “I see that as a danger that you shouldn’t underestimate,” emphasized Bayern’s former star midfielder.
Supervisory Board Uli Hoeneß had previously announced that Bayern wanted to present a successor to the recalled sports director Hasan Salihamidzic by Christmas. Effenberg doesn’t see a change from Leipzig’s sporting director Max Eberl to Munich: “If it should come to that, I’ll lose faith in football contracts.”
The former Italy legionnaire sees a need for talks, especially with ex-CEO Oliver Kahn, who, like Salihamidzic, has to go. It must be made “clean sweep”.
FC Bayern, News: Daley Blind’s wife hints at farewell
Daley Blind, who was only signed in winter, will reportedly leave Bayern at the end of the season. His wife also indicated that.
Candy-rae Blind already said goodbye on Instagram: “Another chapter in our lives is closed. An adventure over five months, with a new home, new school, new routines. It wasn’t our best, but we made it.”
Blind had moved to Munich as an emergency response to the injuries to Lucas Hernández and Noussair Mazraoui – six months later his contract expired again.
