The question of whether the German record champions will bid for the Norwegian, “does not arise with us,” said FCB President Herbert Hainer of the Süddeutsche Zeitung. “In Robert Lewandowski we have the reigning world footballer who scores goals like no other every season. He absolutely deserves to win the Ballon d'Or this year,” said Hainer.
Under his leadership, the ex-club of ÖFB star David Alaba will continue to operate solidly. “FC Bayern didn't do everything in the past that they might have been able to do. The fixed-term deposit account, this non-dependence on others, has always been a driving force here,” emphasized the 67-year-old. “But as you read more and more recently, fewer and fewer clubs have a healthy cushion.”
It couldn't go on like this. “In this respect, my focus is more on how we protect the clubs and ultimately football. How we prevent clubs from going bankrupt when this spiral of money keeps turning, when the teams are costing more and more, the advisors are pulling more and more out of the system.” , criticized the Bayern boss.
