Will Dortmund striker Erling Haaland be an issue at Bayern in the coming year? President Herbert Hainer expresses himself a little differently than last sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
Doesn’t worry at the moment whether Erling Haaland can be financed: President Herbert Hainer.
“Sure, he’s a top player, a super boy, as I hear. You look at it,” said Salihamidzic, who was interested in Haaland. In 2022, the striker could actually get out of his contract, which runs until 2024, via an exit clause and leave Borussia.
But according to Hainer, Bayern Munich would like to hold back on betting. The question of whether the German record champions could finance the exceptional striker, “does not arise with us,” said the FCB president of the Süddeutsche Zeitung and answered the question from a purely sporting point of view: “We have in Robert Lewandowski the reigning world footballer who every season Scoring goals like no other. ” The 33-year-old Pole still has a contract until 2023.
When asked whether the club was willing to invest despite the lower income due to the corona pandemic, Hainer said: “Of course! But we decide according to sporting criteria, and if you lack 150 million euros in income because of the Corona, you look of course even more so, how you organize your expenses. ”
Hainer demands clear rules for the clubs
In view of the financial difficulties of some clubs such as FC Barcelona, Hainer calls for clear rules for the future. “Ultimately, it has to be stipulated that clubs can only spend as much as they earn.”
For this, a control system is required that monitors the economic activity of the clubs and, if necessary, sanctions it. Hainer emphasized that he was certain that such a system would be introduced in the future.
