Bayern Munich’s supervisory board member Karl-Heinz Rummenigge casually confirmed Raphael Guerreiro’s commitment on the sidelines of the Champions League final in Istanbul between Manchester City and Inter Milan. “We got good players in Guerreiro and Laimer,” said the 67-year-old DAZN.
The German record champions made the free transfer of midfielder Konrad Laimer from league rivals RB Leipzig public on Friday. FC Bayern have always been very interested in the former Dortmund player Guerreiro, who won the 2016 European Championship with Portugal. Various media reported in the middle of the week that details still had to be clarified. The left winger’s contract with BVB is expiring.
At the same time, the former club boss Rummenigge, who returned to the supervisory board after the dismissal of CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, revealed that a goalscorer and the appointment of a new sports director or sports director enjoy top priority.
With Robert Lewandowski, who was transferred to FC Barcelona last summer, FC Bayern have sold “50 goals across all competitions” per season: “Something will have to be done.”
“Quality is everything” for the new sporting manager, said Rummenigge. The club must also “get a little more empathy” again, the term “Mia san Mia” is “sometimes a bit overused” for his taste.
Once Salihamidzic’s successor has been found, he and Honorary President Uli Hoeneß would “retire a little”, announced Rummenigge. Max Eberl from the cup winners RB Leipzig is the preferred candidate for Munich.
