Record national player Lothar Matthäus has defended himself for his criticism of CEO Oliver Kahn from Bayern Munich.
“I will not let myself be bent in my way,” Matthäus wrote in his Sky column: “I claim that I judge Bayern correctly, but they only complain when I’m critical.”
skyExpert Matthäus had heavily criticized Kahn in the run-up to Munich’s top Bundesliga game against Borussia Dortmund (4: 2) on Saturday, later even accused him of lying and thus aroused the anger of those responsible in Munich.
President Herbert Hainer also reacted on Sunday and spoke out against Matthäus’ statements.
“I’m just doing my job, and doing it as well as I can. With heart and soul and passion. Just like Oliver as Bayern boss,” explained Matthäus and added: “The fact that the club tramples on Mia-san-mia, maybe I phrased it a little too harshly. But I’ve been hearing for a long time that the warmth of the nest was lived more in the past.”
