CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has demanded after the recent injuries to the German football champions Bayern Munich a sharp reaction from the German Football Association (DFB). “What we all do not like is the way we play against them, which is something that has to be sorted out somehow,” said Rummenigge before the departure of Bayern for the Champions League prelude at Benfica on Wednesday.
“There is the DFB and especially the referees are asked to protect the players,” Rummenigge continued: “This can not continue, otherwise we will not get eleven players together on matchday 10. I would like to remind: We have many national players and they will soon have games in important competitions. “
The Bavarians have to do without the partially badly injured Kingsley Coman, Corentin Tolisso and Rafinha. Rummenigge sees for the hard gait of the opponents also the public debate about the superiority of the series champion as cause. It is discussed according to the motto: “Any means is right to make the FC Bayern problems or stop it,” he said. “This discussion is a bit unspeakable and also completely unfair.”
Rummenigge welcomed in this context, the four-game suspension for Leverkusen Karim Bellarabi, who had injured the Munich Rafinha with a foul. Although he was basically not a friend of punishments, he said, but this could be “an example that one is ready to intervene”. Bellarabi’s foul had been “completely absurd”.
