The president of the Board of Directors of Bayern, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said this Sunday on the program ‘Doppelpass’ that, after “a year of madness”, with five titles, the club wants even more.
Despite how difficult 2020 has been because of the pandemic, Bayern prefer to focus on the positive. The Bavarians have won every competition.
And Rumenigge warned that they are still hungry. “We have played a year of madness. No other team has played so many games at this level,” said Rummenigge.
The 2-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen, with which Bayern snatched the Bundesliga lead, was for him the proof that the players’ will, character and ambition remain intact.
“The year had started well and had to end well,” said Rummennigge who hopes to continue on the paths he has taken.
“I hate that sentence where someone says he doesn’t have to prove anything anymore. I have to show every day what we are, even after a glorious year. That is something that is inside all of us,” he added.
Rummenigge will leave office on 1 January 2022 when he will be replaced by Oliver Kahn. “I have always been against considering myself indispensable. I don’t know what I will do on 1 January 2022, I haven’t decided if I will do anything after that. Kahn is someone predestined for this position,” he explained
Finally, he spoke about Alaba’s possible departure. “Bayern did everything possible to make him stay,” he said.
