Matthäus continues: “Of course he weakens Oliver Kahn with that. He sent a signal to Kahn. You have to be more active, you have to approach people. That’s Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich is a community and you have to talk to each other. I think Uli Hoeneß was not satisfied, as Oliver Kahn demonstrated to the outside world.”

Kahn himself had recently appeared calm about the discussions about himself: “I concentrate 100 percent on my work. And that now means: How can we become German champions? Everything else doesn’t interest me,” he said in an interview on Friday with Munich Mercury/tz.

FC Bayern Munich, News: Kemme alludes to “FCB tastes”.

The anger about referee Sascha Stegemann and video assistant Robert Hartmann has not yet subsided. Now the fact that Hartmann comes from the Allgäu and is therefore part of the Bavarian Football Association is causing a stir.

“The fact that he comes from the Allgäu offers a very, very large target. Again,” said sky-Expert Tabea Kemme. The thought behind it is clear: FC Bayern benefited from Dortmund’s 1-1 draw at VfL Bochum on Friday, so Hartmann could not theoretically be completely impartial.

The 43-year-old had asked referee Harm Osmers to watch a scene in which he had decided on a penalty for HSV. Osmers subsequently took the penalty back.
