FC Bayern, News: Rummenigge names a clear list of errors
The returning ex-boss of FC Bayern Munich Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has in an interview with the dpa a whole list of what the record champions did wrong in the past season.
The change of coach in March brought “quite a lot of unrest in the club”.
The early departure after the change of coach caused “dissatisfaction”.
“I don’t want to say anything negative about Oliver Kahn,” said Rummenigge, adding that he had done too much for Bayern as a player. But this makes it clear that there is some criticism of him, even if it remains unspoken.
“Certain values should be lived again” in the club. He wants to talk to himself instead of about each other. “FC Bayern has always been a big family,” he clarified, “we have to become one again.” In the past, it was often discussed whether FC Bayern had lost the “Mia san Mia”.
Bayern would have to “get strength from the team spirit, from the spirit,” explained Rummenigge. This is the only way to defeat clubs like Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester City “with an incredible amount of money”.
FC Bayern need “a hierarchy” again. The team that won the pot in 2020 was an “incredibly well-functioning team” in which hierarchy was important. There is a lack of “chiefs and Indians”.
He also gave an outlook on how he would support FC Bayern. He does not want to “intervene operationally”, but in conjunction with Uli Hoeneß, Herbert Hainer, Jan-Christian Dreesen and “the coach” to fill the task of the missing sports director. He gives a clear indication: “The number nine” is a position in which one would like to improve. But one thing is clear: “It doesn’t always have to be the top shelf.” In Mario Mandzukic, an “incredibly important” player was found in the cheap area in 2012.
FC Bayern, News: Markus Krösche describes inquiries as “irrelevant”
According to rumours, FC Bayern Munich is said to be interested in Eintracht Frankfurt’s sporting director Markus Krösche in order to fill Hasan Salihamidzic’s vacant position. He now reacted in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on the rumours. Certain things like speculation cannot be prevented, but “I said weeks ago that Eintracht is my focus,” explains the SBU boss.
“We’ve had two exciting years here and I’m looking forward to everything that’s to come,” he said, looking towards Eintracht’s future. Although there was “a loose request from time to time”, “but that’s irrelevant!” He did not specifically name Bayern, but his statement could certainly be interpreted as a rejection of FCB.
FC Bayern, News: FCB defends delayed DFB shutdown
FC Bayern Munich has commented on the DFB’s allegations of breach of word regarding the timing of the national players’ release. The reasons were “explained very precisely” both verbally and in writing dpa the club. “Out of consideration for their health” a new decision was made about the arrival date of the FCB national players.

Chelsea FC is also said to have received a report from the Picture according to his players until June 23. The women of VfL Wolfsburg, whose season is much longer than that of the Bayern women due to the Champions League final, should have no problem with the early shutdown date.
FC Bayern, News: Netherlands dispute over Daley Blind
Although Daley Blind hardly played a role at FC Bayern Munich and hardly played at all in the second half of the season, Netherlands national coach Ronald Koeman decided to call up his protégé to the Elftal. That pissed off experts from home. There are already enough players in all positions, ex-national player Ronald de Boer explained Ziggo sports“Blind deserves all respect, but this is his last appearance”.
Marco van Basten was particularly bothered by the lack of match practice, “the players should be in rhythm when they are in the Oranje squad,” explained the national legend. He accused Koeman of only nominating Blind and other players because he “already knows them”. That’s not fair.
