Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has commented on the Großkotz accusations by DFB President Fritz Keller. He should “do his homework,” said the FC Bayern boss, listing the association’s failures.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has criticized the German Football Association (DFB) and its president Fritz Keller. The chief executive of FC Bayern called Kellers recent statements populist.
Rummenigge said Sunday evening before the game of the German soccer record champions against 1. FC Union Berlin at Sky: “Maybe you should buy a broom from the DFB to sweep your own door, that would be appropriate in that case. “
Keller’s “Großkotz” quote displeases Rummenigge
Keller had said in an interview with the “Spiegel” that you can now see “what it leads to when the new rich, some of whom are also on the ball in the Bundesliga, splurge with their money. This big boil is on everyone’s feet. This is a disaster for the image of football. We have to look at how things will go after the crisis. With more humility, close to the people. “
Rummenigge said: “If we have had a crisis in the past few years, it was to be found at the DFB.” He would like the association to do its “homework” in the corona crisis. “To date, it is not yet certain when the women’s Bundesliga and the third division will be able to start playing again. Now it is important that the others can also follow us, ”said the Bayern boss.
Rummenigge also emphasized that the club was optimistic that goalkeeper Manuel Neuer would promptly accept FC Bayern’s offer for a new contract. The captain’s current contract is valid until June 30, 2021.
