Karl Heinz Rummenigge admits it’s difficult to keep stars from English giants

Bayern Munich chief Karl Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that it’s difficult for them to keep hold of their best players, especially when Premier League giants come calling.

Rummenigge was discussing the financial strengths in England compared to Germany and he’s admitted that even Bayern Munich struggle to compete in terms of money.

Manchester United were plotting raids on Munich this summer, with Thomas Muller on top of their wishlist, however the forward didn’t want to leave the Allianz Arena.

Louis van Gaal did sign Bastian Schweinsteiger from the Bundesliga champions however and the club’s chief knows they could lose more stars in the future.

Financial Powers Elsewhere

He told Bloomberg Television: “We have an incredibly big gap between paid TV in England and paid TV in Germany. First of all, I believe we in the German league made big mistakes if we talk around 10, 12, 15 years ago when the paid TV market was established and then built and developed in England.

“We were very slow in believing that the clock maybe in Germany is going different than in England but it doesn’t go different.

“So, that is a big, big problem in the transfer market, because the English clubs have so much money available in that market that it is not easy to defend.

“We keep our best players here in Bayern Munich like Thomas Muller or players from Real Madrid like Sergio Ramos because they have big requests from England, so it is very difficult to keep them.”
