FC Bayern, News: The lead in the money list is shrinking

Of the table football exclusively printed the media revenues of all 18 Bundesliga clubs in its Thursday edition. It is about a total of 1053.7 million euros for the 2022/23 season. And it turns out that the distribution key, which was newly introduced by the DFL from the 2021/22 season, at least limited the gap between Bayern and the basement of the league.

That means: For the current season, Bayern collect 90.2 million euros – and thus 56.9 million euros more than bottom VfL Bochum (33.3 million euros). In 2020/21 this lead was even bigger. At that time, 105.4 million euros went to Bayern, while Bielefeld received 34.3 million euros in 18th place – a difference of 71.1 million euros.

The advantage over the closest pursuers is as follows: Borussia Dortmund, in second place, will receive 80.1 million euros in the current season, followed by RB Leipzig 78.3 million euros. Overall, the numbers fell slightly: in 2021/22 the clubs still collected 1.189 billion euros. However, the numbers will increase again in the coming years.

However, one must not embezzle the income from the Champions League. FC Bayern will collect at least 52 million euros regardless of the outcome of the round of 16 duel against PSG.

FC Bayern, News: Manuel Neuer seventh best goalkeeper in the league?

Kicker has published the first rankings for the first half of the 2022/23 season. In terms of central defenders, Bayern clearly have the best grouping in the league with Dayot Upamecano in first place (international class), Lucas Hernández (3rd place, national class) and Matthijs de Ligt (5th place, international class).

But the goalkeepers are different. There, Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel is placed first – and Manuel Neuer is seventh and just barely in the international class. The magazine sees Yann Sommer ahead of him, who could possibly replace Neuer in the second half of the season, but also goalkeepers like Koen Casteels and Mark Flekken.

Neuer’s performance at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will also be evaluated. And, as ex-keeper Richard Golz writes: “The early German end was not embarrassing, but a newcomer in normal, especially in top condition could have helped to prevent it.”
