Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Postby Mirage » Mon Nov 27, 2006 3:56 pm

BERLIN, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich are considering pulling out of the G-14, doubting whether the lobbying group of top European clubs is achieving anything for its members or for the game as a whole.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the Bayern chairman, was sharply critical of the Group, saying clubs from Spain, Italy and England were looking out only for themselves in a sport he said was ruled by "selfishness".

Speaking in an interview with Kicker published on Monday, he also said the growing disparity in income meant German clubs would soon be unable to compete with clubs in richer leagues.

"We will consider whether it makes any sense to stay on in the G-14," Rummenigge said. "We don't feel like paying an annual subscription for just sitting around and talking about things when nothing comes out of it.

"I doubt whether the G-14 is meaningful any longer. I find that too little is happening. There is no communication with FIFA or UEFA."

Bayern were among the founder members of the G-14, which met for the first time at a Madrid casino in 2000 with a view to promoting the interests of Europe's top clubs, particularly over issues such as TV money from the Champions League and compensation for players injured on international duty.

Other notable members of the original 14 were Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Manchester United and Liverpool. Four clubs were added in 2002, taking the membership number to 18.

"The clubs in the G-14 only have themselves in mind," Rummenigge said in response to a question about Real Madrid and their president Ramon Calderon.

"I'll say it in no uncertain terms: Calderon and his colleagues are single combatants, as are the Italians and the English. In football it is pure selfishness that rules. There is little common ground among the clubs."

German teams were successful in Europe in the 1990s and early 2000s but Rummenigge said Bundesliga clubs would no longer be a match for Spanish clubs raking in TV rights money or English clubs with wealthy foreign investors.

"I dare say that in the next 10 years you won't see a German club in the final of a European competition," he said.

"What Werder Bremen have achieved against Barcelona and Chelsea in the Champions League is a miracle. If they make it past Barcelona it will be the eighth wonder of the world.

"Bremen received 23 million euros from TV, while Barcelona got 143 million euros. I hope the European Union puts a stop to these excesses of (Chelsea owner Roman) Abramovich and foreign television."

Rummenigge said he hoped for a salary cap and a central system of marketing to combat the growing financial inequality.

It's a good point he makes about the German clubs unable to compete with the other European clubs, but I don't know if there's much point in pulling out of it =/

All of Rummenigge's arguments point to one thing. German clubs not able to compete with other clubs. :)...I don't see any reason why they should pull out of G-14. :D

on the point about Bayern possibly leaving the G14, itlooks to be more of a matter of principle than anything else.

Rummenigge Demands Goal Line Refs

Postby MUTU » Sun Sep 30, 2007 4:23 pm

Bayern Munich Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has called for the introduction of goal line referees to judge whether the ball has crossed the line.

After watching Bayern have a perfectly legitimate goal ruled out against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, the ex-international striker told Premiere, “We need a goal line referee who can signal to the referee whether it was a goal or not.”

Referee Knut Kircher waved play on even though TV replays showed the shot from Miroslav Klose was clearly over the line.

Bayern manager Uli Hoeneß had already demanded the introduction of goal line cameras after legitimate goals from Roberto Hilbert (v Werder) and Gerald Asamoah (v Bielefeld) had been wrongly ruled out earlier this season.

“The disadvantage of cameras would be that the game would be interrupted. Goal line referees are more practical” Rummenigge said.

Surprise support came from Leverkusen trainer Michael Skibbe.

“In principle I believe that technology should be used to help the officials. I think that a goal line camera is certainly possible in the top league. When you already have 55 cameras installed, one more is not a problem” he explained.

Volker Roth, Chairman of the DFB refereeing committee, has said that the DFB alone cannot decide on the introduction of technology.

“It’s understandable to have emotional reactions after such events, but we have to be aware that the use of goal line cameras is not permitted at the moment” he explained.

“FIFA are responsible for introducing the changes that are being demanded.

“On behalf of the German Referees, I can confidently say that we are not against technology where it makes sense, quite the opposite. We welcome it.”

Hitzfeld & Rummenigge feuding

Bayern chairman, coach feuding
Associated Press,


MUNICH, Germany (AP) - Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge argued with coach Ottmar Hitzfeld after the team failed to beat Bolton in the UEFA Cup.

Rummenigge was upset that coach Ottmar Hitzfeld rested five regulars, including top scorer Luca Toni and defender Martin Demichelis, for Thursday's 2-2 draw - its third in a row.

"It would have been easy to win the game," Rummenigge said. "There were 66,000 spectators in the stadium and they have the right to see the best team."

Hitzfeld rotated his players because Bayern plays VfB Stuttgart on Saturday, just 44 hours after the Bolton game. Hamburger SV has cut Bayern's lead in the Bundesliga to two points.

Hitzfeld described the game against Stuttgart as more important and said his players need to be fresh.

"We'll be hunted in Stuttgart," he said. "The entire Bundesliga is just waiting to see a new team at the top of the table."

Rummenigge's criticism was rare for the respected German coach. Hitzfeld is one of just two men to win the Champions League with two different teams - Bayern in 2001 and Borussia Dortmund in 1997.

The Bayern chairman dismissed Hitzfeld's arguments about prioritizing the two games, saying "football isn't mathematics." That also referred to Hitzfeld's former career as a mathematics teacher.

"I hope I understand one times one in football," an angry Hitzfeld retorted.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Though I don't always agree with Rummenigge, I think this time I just might agree with him. I, presonally, would want to see the best team play that night against Bolton. And, after seeing today's result, well, I guess Bayern was not fresh enough.

The match was not nice to witness and the players that were rested (ze/Micho etc.) should have been fresh enough to do more than they contributed.

We must put it down to one of those things in football - no side can expect to go through any league unbeaten.

Lets say its a 'wake up call' and after victories against Wolsburg and Braga things will look brighter than they did yesterday.

Rummenigge rejects Bundesliga TV idea...The former Germany international said any Bundesliga football channel would have to earn at least €240 million plus running costs in order to make a profit and "That's something you can forget about,"

Instead the DFL should be trying to convince fans that pay TV could offer something the public broadcasters were unable to provide, he added

"On the transfer market, money is the only criterion. The Bundesliga has been lagging behind for a long time regarding TV income internationally. We are easily last. Even France earns more,"
