The honorary president of Bayern Munich spoke before Friday’s quarter-final match against Barcelona.
The honorary president of Bayer Munich, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge , gets on the bandwagon of Lothar Matthäus, who has been despising the level of Barcelona after knowing that he will be the rival of the Bavarian team in the quarterfinals of the Champions League that will take place next Friday.
On this occasion, the Bavarian club manager referred to Marc-André Ter Stegen. “Germany is fortunate to have great goalkeepers, although Neuer is world class and Ter Stegen is still on the way to being, he is not yet at the level of his compatriot.”
It is a statement that maintains the tone of what was recently expressed by Matthäus, who assured that Bayern should not have problems to overcome Barça considering that Lionel Messi is no longer the best in the world. “The best is Lewandowski, he is his successor.”
Rummenigge’s statements are especially surprising because, unlike the opinions of Matthäus, they occur within the German club and differ from the more sporting tone in which the Hansi Flick footballers are expressing themselves in the absence of three days to play the match.
We will see what happens on the court, when the words will be put aside and it will be the ball that decides.
