FC Bayern: Flick probably wanted to get several DFB players
Hansi Flick apparently wanted to bring several players, including current and former DFB players, to Munich, all of whom were rejected. That reports image-Reporter Christian Falk in his book “Bayern Insider”.
According to this, Flick could imagine working with Kai Havertz in Munich, but could consider the 80 million euros that Chelsea FC transferred for the national player to be “economically unrealistic”. He was also a “big advocate” of a commitment from Timo Werner, with whom he even spoke on the phone. Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, with whom Flick had repeatedly disagreements until his separation, advocated a transfer from Leroy Sane – that’s how it happened.
Mario Götze would also have liked to see Flick at Bayern, just like Julian Draxler. Both the club bosses, however. Benjamin Henrichs and the then Mainz Ridle Baku would also have gladly committed to the report, instead of Bouna Sarr and Alvaro Odriozola.
Other names that Flick and his staff put up for discussion were Arne Maier, then loaned to Arminia Bielefeld by Hertha, Max Meyer, at that time at Crystal Palace, and Shakhtar Donezk’s Dodo.
On Flick’s recommendation, on the other hand, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and loan player Tiago Dantas came to Munich, and Flick is said to have persuaded Dayot Upamecano as well.
FC Bayern: Uli Hoeneß explains his ‘attack department’
Uli Hoeneß, honorary president of FC Bayern, explained what his famous ‘attack department’ is and why he still insults journalists today.
“If I attacked, it was 98 percent to protect FC Bayern. To this day I call journalists and abuse them,” said Hoeneß in the OMR-Podcast. The aim of the 69-year-old is to keep the FCB employees from being criticized.
“If I have the feeling that FC Bayern – or parts of the club, players, coaches and board members – are being treated unfairly, then you have to say something,” said Hoeneß.
FC Bayern: Hoeneß called Matthäus
So Hoeneß called Lothar Matthäus after the 3-1 win over RB Leipzig. “What kind of nonsense did you say that FC Bayern is broadly the worst-positioned club in the Bundesliga – among the top clubs?” Hoeneß claims to be the German national record player. Hoeneß said that he had “few arguments”.
Also in Sport1-Double pass Hoeneß likes to let out his anger. “I see it quite regularly. There is so much steam chatting and it never really gets down to business. You have to say something,” he said.
His spontaneous guest appearances are always associated with little effort for him. “I have the number of an editor, whom I then call. He continues, then everything is thrown away and Hoeneß comes on the show,” said the long-time president of FCB.
