The chairman of the supervisory board, Oliver Kahn, has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United was actually an issue at Bayern Munich.
“We discussed the topic – otherwise we wouldn’t be doing our job well,” said Kahn sports picture: “Personally, I think Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers that has ever walked the planet.”
The Portuguese superstar has been associated with the people of Munich for weeks. Most recently, there were reports from his home country that the 37-year-old himself wanted to switch to Bayern.
“But we came to the conclusion that for all our appreciation, he would not have suited our philosophy in the current situation,” added Kahn on the subject of Ronaldo.
With his huge salary (he is said to collect up to 29 million euros a year in Manchester), CR7 would hardly have been financially viable.
FC Bayern: Kahn complains about economic disadvantages compared to PL clubs
Kahn also once again complained about the economic disadvantages of the Bundesliga clubs compared to the Premier League clubs. But Bayern have another advantage that should not be underestimated.
“The mentality that is passed on here from generation to generation, this Bayern gene, the ‘Mia san mia’: That’s a pound!” said the 53-year-old: “That’s what sets FC Bayern apart, it’s a tremendous one Wert, which now had a great attraction for players like Sadio Mane or Matthijs de Ligt. Other clubs don’t have that.”
