Former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is critical of a possible transfer from Erling Haaland to Bayern Munich.
Rummenigge said the young Dortmund man was a “great talent and great player”. Despite his 33 years of age, Lewandowski could “still deliver top football for two or three years at this level and score many, many goals”.
Rummenigge gave special praise to the former problem child Leroy Sane. “He’s now the Leroy Sane, who he has to be talented, a wonderful player. This light-footedness, this dribbling, this wonderful shot with the left – now he’s really made it to Munich,” he said: “That is without question a Merit from Julian Nagelsmann and a little from Hansi Flick in the national team. “
Nagelsmann is “a top coach” who works very well at Bayern. And Flick managed to make the DFB selection “stable” again. “He brought her back on the path of virtue. It’s now fun to watch the national team again, which I didn’t like so much before,” said the 66-year-old.
Rummenigge also saw the Coronavirus variant Omikron as a threat to football. “That will be a big challenge this year. How will it continue – and above all: How will it continue financially?” Said the former Bayern boss.
FC Bayern: Rummenigge hopes for the season to continue
According to Rummenigge, FC Bayern alone will be blocked with “four to five million euros in loss of earnings” per home game. “That’s higher at other top clubs, especially in England.” Some games have already been canceled in the Premier League.
Rummenigge expects the season to continue in England: “I assume that they play. They may experience what we have experienced here: Lockdown, no spectators allowed.” However, this is “nothing in terms of mood, and that is to be regretted”.
