Paul Breitner

I was looking for a topic on Paul Breitner, but couldn't find one, so just created one. Mods, if there is one that I haven't found, can you move my post?

Anyway, I just saw this interview with Breitner on Goal.com. He certainly is a character!

http://www.goal.com/en/news/15/germany/2012/08/01/3281286/breitner-dortmunds-humility-is-childish

Bayern Munich legend Paul Breitner has labelled Borussia Dortmund "childish" over their alleged persistence in downplaying their hopes of winning the Bundesliga this season because of their desire to go beyond the group stages of the Champions League.

The two-time defending Bundesliga champions were out of European competition by the winter break last year and are determined to make amends this time around.

Breitner, though, does not buy into the suggestion that their hopes of winning a third successive title should necessarily suffer as a consequence.

"It is childish," the former West Germany international told Eurosport. "I am sure that Dortmund would rethink their stance very quickly if they got to hear what all the other sides thought. People, stop with this childishness, it's ridiculous!

"I expect that they [Dortmund] will still be involved in Europe in the second half of the season. Dortmund will not be able to bow out of the Champions League with a whimper this time."

For that very reason, Breitner believes that the playing field will be levelled in this year's battle for the Bundesliga, alluding to the fact that Bayern Munich were involved in Europe's premier club cup competition right up until the final.

"Therefore, you will see this season who is really No.1 [in Germany] and not only who is No.1 due to lack of games, but the No.1 over a decent season, with many games in the Champions League."
Breitner, who also represented Real Madrid during his illustrious playing career, enjoyed two separate stints with Bayern.


I wouldn't call it childish, rather modesty as I'm sure Dortmund would be quietly confident this season... though I would say he's got a point (the bits I've highlighted in Bold) about this season being a truer test of who's actually the best football team, given that Bayern played a lot more games last season.
To all those, Over the years,
who have come to
Munich as strangers
and left as good friends.
Zum Wohl!

I really don't think the extra 6 games (7, but the final was played after the Bundesliga ended), 4 of which were against Basel and Marseille, are enough to justify an 8 point difference. If anything, advancing further in Europe should have been a morale booster for us. Admittedly though, we did play the title decider against Dortmund a week before a hard clash against Real Madrid.

It's the intensity of the games and when they're played in the season. It doesn't add up to many more games, but the effect on the players must be quite a bit.

It's not like our players aren't used to it though. Actually, if both teams were to advance in Europe next season, I'd say we'd be at an advantage over Dortmund because most of their players aren't used to playing 2 games a week.

90 minutes are more than enough to weary both the body and soul alike.

I know I agree with you. I feel that people underestimate how tiring playing 90 minutes of football is. Breitner has a good point and I don't think Dortmund will do as well this season. I hope. [-o<

Paul Breitner has cancelled his contract with FC Bayern after working with the club for ten years, according to Sport Bild

"That's true. I canceled my contract with FC Bayern at the end of the month. I have been doing my job with joy for ten years, it was wonderful. But now is the right time to stop. I took this decision deliberately and with full conviction."

I believe that's right. He also went on to say "I can now be 100% Paul Breitner now, I don't have to be afraid anymore"....whatever that means.

Bayern legend Paul Breitner on the bosses press conference: "With that presser, they have ruined the work that the club has made in recent years to get out of the arrogance image. I'm still depressed because I never imagined in 48 years that FC Bayern will show this weakness"

"I don't really know what happened there. Rummenigge comes in prepared, talks about the constitution and dignity, then 10 minutes later, the man next to him tramples on the same constitution and crucifies an ex player"

Breitner: "For Uli, it was always about the family. The FC Bayern family. Today, the kids of the family have to say: 'We are ashamed of dad now'" [BR Sport]
