Rummenigge also explained why the German league clubs have not managed to break the hegemony of Bayern, which has won leagues in a row.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bayern Munich, Karlheinz Rummeniggesaid, in an interview with the club’s magazine, that currently the Bundesliga is at the same level as LaLiga or the Premiere League after having looked for years towards Spain and England as examples to follow.
“German club football had to look with admiration for many years towards Spain and England. But currently the top Bundesliga teams don’t have to hide from any other league,” said Rummmenigge.
“The level has risen enormously, for something this year for the first time the six German teams are still alive in the Champions League and in the Europa League, “he added.
If other teams have failed to break the hegemony of the Bayern, who has won the Bundesliga eight times in a row and is now the leader with seven points of advantage over the second, that is due to lack of constancy.
“What our competitors lack is consistency to always give the performance they are capable of,” he said.
At the interview Rummenigge also looked towards him Club World Cup, in which the Bayern has the opportunity to match the feat of Barcelona, who achieved six titles between 2009 and 2010.
According Rummenigge last fall, when there were indications that the Club World Cup could be canceled, the locker room leaders showed up at his office to ask him to pressure the FIFA for the tournament to take place.
“They wanted the historic opportunity to win six titles in a few months which only the Barcelona“, said.
Rummenigge highlighted the hunger for titles in the current squad and said that this is part of the DNA of the Bayern and he recalled his beginnings as a player in 1974.
“I remember my partner Jupp KapelmannShortly after I arrived in 1974, he explained to me in what dimensions the Bayern. If you lose a game, he told me, you have a problem, if you lose two a crisis and if you lose three the coach is in danger, “he explained Rummmenigge.
“Every generation of players in the Bayern it has had to cope with that pressure for 50 years. The strength of our club is that it draws its motivation from there. As a player I saw each defeat as a personal offense, “he said.
