FC Bayern Munich “harms Qatar Airways”
The sports and human rights expert Sylvia Schenk from Transparency International Germany has criticized the way FC Bayern dealt with the issue of Qatar Airways and stated that it would also damage its sponsor.
“FC Bayern treats its committed fans completely the wrong way and is not only damaging the club’s democracy, but also its own sponsor Qatar Airways,” she said in an interview with the kicker.
In her opinion, the Munich-based board of directors should “get down to work. After all, the DFL task force ‘Future Profifußball’ also recorded in its report published at the beginning of February 2021 how fundamental a binding human rights concept is,” she explains.
She also criticized the statements made by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who recently emphasized that FC Bayern had received “good money” from sponsorship. “When Karl-Heinz Rummenigge puts the financial side in the foreground, he unnecessarily reinforces the impression that football is always about money – regardless of whose costs Promote respect for human rights and still earn money, “said Schenk.
At the annual general meeting in November there were heated discussions between the FCB board and fans about the airline Qatar Airways, which will be a sponsor of FC Bayern until 2023. In the aftermath, the Munich team admitted mistakes in dealing with the subject.
FC Bayern Munich: Pavard talks about the future
Benjamin Pavard commented on his future and stated that he could not currently imagine a change.
“Currently my focus is on Munich,” said the Frenchman in an interview with the kicker. At the same time, he emphasized that he would like his national team-mates Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman to stay at FCB. “I hope I can play with both of them while I’m in Munich,” said Pavard.
According to his own statement, Pavard is currently very happy with his role at Bayern. “According to the statistics, I play regularly, so I feel like a regular player. We have tough competition in every position, but that forces me to work harder every day and perform at my best – in training or during the games, “he explained.
The contract of the 25-year-old, who has always been in the starting line-up for the past few weeks, will run until 2024.
