Erling Haaland is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe – and therefore of course also interesting for FC Bayern. Its president now expressed himself quite clearly about a possible obligation.
Bayern Munich would like to hold back in the Europe-wide competition for Borussia Dortmund’s goal scorer Erling Haaland. The question of whether the German football record champions could finance the exceptional Norwegian striker, “does not arise with us,” said FCB President Herbert Hainer of the Süddeutsche Zeitung: “We have in Robert Lewandowski the reigning world footballer who scores goals like no other every season Second. “
In principle, the association is still ready to invest despite the lower income caused by the corona pandemic, said Hainer (“Of course!”). But in the current situation you look “all the more, of course, at how you organize your expenses.”
According to the Bayern president, this approach would also be advisable for other clubs. Fewer and fewer clubs have “a healthy cushion. It can’t go on like this,” said the 67-year-old: “In this respect, my focus is more on how we protect the clubs and ultimately football. How we prevent clubs from going bankrupt if they are The spiral of money keeps turning when the team costs more and more and the consultants pull more and more out of the system. “
To do this, a control system is required that monitors the economic activity of the clubs and, if necessary, sanctions it. Hainer emphasized that he was certain that such a system would be introduced in the future.
In addition, the former CEO of Adidas described FC Bayern as an “influencer”. Everyone must be “aware that the club plays a major role for sport, society and the social fabric.” He wants to help ensure that “the club is perceived as a role model in terms of sport, economy and society.”
