Karl-Heinz Rummenigge


Last quote by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

I think Sanchez has already decided which club [to join], so I suppose that the door will be closed in January. That's not an issue, and he is no direct substitute for Robert Lewandowski as he is not a real centre forward. The possibilities will be limited. If you have a good player, you will not give him up - or only for a huge amount of money.feedback

Oct 02 2017 - Heinz

We're sorry Franck has hurt himself. We all wish him a quick recovery.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Heinz

Of course we were frightened when we heard the news. We're relieved that Jan-Christian is already on his way to get better.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Heinz

If I take a look to the right or left, then there is nothing to misunderstand or to interpret wrong. I think it's important to turn things around after this loss, to present as Bayern Munich and to show we are a team, [the one] which performed well in Europe and in Germany last year. That's where we have to continue.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Heinz

I know our team, they are highly motivated and concentrated for games like this. I am convinced we can get something out of this game.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Heinz

Such a useful solution would be in the sense of the clubs, all managers and fans if they knew on the first matchday with which team their clubs start the new season.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Heinz

I want to underline that an earlier end of the transfer window never failed due to the big European clubs, but to the smaller clubs which wanted to absorb a possible failure in the UCL qualification on the transfer market.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Heinz

It must come to a uniform solution in the whole of Europe, independently on the start of the season in the individual leagues. A collective end of the transfer window on July 31st would also contribute to bringing more sense and rationality back to football. Such a useful solution would be in the sense of the clubs, all managers and fans if they knew on the first matchday with which team their clubs start the new season.feedback

Sep 19 2017

The operation has gone perfectly and that's the most important thing for now.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We're looking forward together without our captain. Manuel will be available to us at his old strength in January.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Clearly Robert has been affected by the PSG transfers. Nevertheless, he is employed by us as a footballer and earns a lot of money. I regret his comments. Anybody who criticises the trainer, the club or his teammates will immediately be in trouble with me personally.feedback

Sep 10 2017 - Heinz

For a long time now we have a serious and successful philosophy that brought us big success. I stick with our chancellor who said the fees should be regulated and reduced.feedback

Sep 10 2017 - Heinz

I don't think the player's might is that high. And Lewandowski can see that when he looks at his contract. He signed until 2021 without an exit clause.feedback

Sep 10 2017 - Heinz

Obviously Robert was irritated by PSG's transfers. He is employed with us as a football player and earns a lot of money. I regret what he said. Whoever publicly criticises the club or his team-mates will get in trouble with me personally. He already made false claims last season following the Freiburg match, where he claimed he had not been supported enough.feedback

Sep 10 2017 - Heinz

Regrettably his agent often is his 'Spiritus Rector'. That was the case here, too. The interview was consciously organised around FC Bayern. He harms Robert with that.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Heinz

Nobody asked us for him and there was never an official offer for him, not even this summer when the market was open. So I cannot confirm Inter wanted him.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Portugal

We wanted Renato Sanches to join a club where he is able to play at a high level and where he has a coach who wants him. Renato has to continuously play for a year, and that's not guaranteed given the quality in our squad.feedback

Aug 21 2017 - Heinz

Perhaps the player just wants to change and has devised the plan himself. I would not condemn Barcelona too early.feedback

Aug 17 2017

There are still two-and-a-half weeks to go until the start of the season.feedback

Aug 11 2017 - European Commission

I have already had contact with the new UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin and I feel he wants to start a new attempt at the European Commission. It is a good idea that football should also have a special status for the introduction of salary caps. I believe that after the Neymar case, the readiness to do so in the EU could be greater.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Heinz

There are at least 10 teams after Sanches. Conte asked for some information about him after Tuesday's match because he knows he can make the difference on the pitch. Almost certainly we'll let him leave just on loan, we still count on him.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Heinz

At least 10 teams would take him. He is a very in-demand player. A year ago he was at the top level, let's not forget that.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Heinz

Against Chelsea he did very well, he surprised Antonio Conte who asked Carlo about him after the game. That shows his value.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Heinz

If we were to let him go, it it would only be on loan. We are talking about a very useful player. We do not want to let go of him.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Heinz

We will discuss it with Carlo, there is still time, no hurry.feedback

Jul 25 2017

If a club are interested in a Bayern player, they must be ready to deal with significant economic figures. We'll say that it wouldn't be bad if a £43m offer came in for him.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Heinz

I'm not the coach, but I think Renato needs regular football. I can confirm Milan's interest, but talks didn't progress last week.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Heinz

If a club are interested in a Bayern player, they must be ready to deal with significant economic figures and I don't feel that Milan are ready to meet our demands.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Heinz

We'll say that it wouldn't be bad if a €48m offer came in for him.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Heinz

It was Serge's explicit desire to be loaned out for one more year so he could get more playing time. In my opinion, this is also guaranteed at a high level in Hoffenheim.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Heinz

After a year, Gnabry will return to Bayern. On behalf of Bayern, I wish him all the best at Hoffenheim and thank the club for the serious and constructive negotiations that led to this agreement.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Heinz

We have a clear agreement with James and Real about a two-year loan. After that we have the option to make the deal permanent with a specific amount for three more years. The transfer market is open for another six weeks. I won't rule out that we sign some other players nor that some players could leave. But right now, nothing specific is planned.feedback

Jul 11 2017

We're delighted we've been able to complete this transfer. Signing James Rodriguez was our coach Carlo Ancelotti's biggest wish, following their successful spell working together in Madrid. James is a very versatile player. He's a goalscorer himself, he sets up a lot of goals and on top of that he's great from set-pieces. There's no question that this transfer further increases the quality in our team.feedback

Jul 11 2017

We are very happy that we were able to secure this transfer. The commitment of James Rodriguez was the great wish of our coach, Carlo Ancelotti, after both had already successfully worked together in Madrid. James is a versatile player. He is dangerous, creates many chances and has a great standard of shooting. With this transfer, we have been able to raise the quality of our team.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Heinz

The coach also told me that he advised the other players to help Lewi especially so that he could win the scoring title. It didn't happen, but no problem.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Heinz

But I think when you score 60 Bundesliga goals in two seasons, then you can be satisfied, even without the scoring title.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Heinz

I can say his team-mates wanted him to get the Golden Boot but it just didn't work out in the end. Lewi scored one, Aubameyang scored two, that happens.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Heinz

And I want to remind people that there were two chances Arturo Vidal had, where he didn't hit the empty net and maybe didn't pass the way he should have.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Heinz

I have been talking to Maik Barthel, the agent of Robert Lewandowski, and asked him what the problem actually was. He said that Robert felt a little bit lacking in support in the last league game against Freiburg. I replied that I don't see this at all like that, and that I want to remind him that Robert had a few chances himself, which his team-mates did create for him.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Heinz

We are in talks with Juventus, but there is no signed deal yet. The player told us that he would like to leave the club. I won't lie, there is an amount, and when this amount will be paid, we are ready to finalise the deal. The talks are positive and serious. It is incredibly important that he plays on a regular basis. We'll think about whether it would be better to loan him. The player and his agents communicated that they would prefer a loan for one year. We are staying calm and we will see what happens in the transfer market.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Heinz

His first year was not easy and not satisfactory for either party.feedback

Jul 09 2017

He'll have to play a stronger season.feedback

Jun 11 2017

We are very happy to have secured the services of another young Germany international in Serge. Serge has developed really well at Bremen.feedback

Jun 11 2017

We are delighted to see another young German national player in FC Bayern in Serge Gnabry. Serge has developed very well in Bremen.feedback

May 23 2017 - Heinz

We've already discussed the transfer policy with Carlo and the board and decided on targets. Next season we'll have a team that's more than capable of challenging for titles again. We have personnel decisions to make. The transfer activity starts now. Sule has come on really well in the last six months and has also been called up to the Germany squad. He's a player who'll make a positive contribution for us in the future.feedback

May 19 2017 - Heinz

Philipp Lahm is one of the most deserving players in the recent history of Bayern. Both on the pitch and off it in his role as captain, he has been a truly important person for the club. He deserves this accolade, which puts him up there with the greats of Bayern. The club would like to thank Philipp Lahm for the amazing performances he has shown for Bayern.feedback

May 16 2017 - Heinz

That's an outrageous hoax. This story misses every base. Joshua Kimmich has a contract until 2020 and will definitely play for Bayern next season.feedback

May 12 2017

It was clear from the outset that after his loan at FC Schalke 04 that Holger Badstuber is likely to look for a new experience abroad. To this end, Bayern Munich wishes Holger Badstuber all the best and would like to thank him for his exemplary commitment in the almost 15 years [he has been at the club].feedback

Apr 29 2017

And now we have won it for the fifth straight time. That is something unusual and amazing.feedback

Apr 28 2017

Thiago is one of the best and therefore most popular midfielders in Europe. We are very happy that we have been able to tie this outstanding professional to the club for the long term.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Heinz

Carlo is a very good and experienced coach. His contract term is known [until 2019] and this is not discussed.feedback

Apr 27 2017

Kingsley Coman is an important building block for the future of our team, so we decided to take up the option, . Kingsley is a player with great potential. We're convinced that he will help us in the coming years.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Heinz

If you play against a team like Real with 10, it becomes difficult. The whole team fought well. Then we were in extra-time and suddenly it's 4-2 thanks to the most curious decisions from the officials.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Heinz

It was an extremely emotional spectacle. You can only compliment both teams. It was great football. Unfortunately it was determined by the referee, at our expense. It wasn't even a foul by Vidal, but of course Vidal was already at risk. This weakened us, of course, as it did in the first leg when [Javi] Martinez was sent off. It killed us. That must be said very clearly. Arturo gets to the ball in front of the Madrid player. It was not a foul. That's why it shouldn't be a yellow-red card.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Heinz

There'll be a test tonight. Everything went well yesterday in training, also with Boateng. Robert was even training with the team. We have to wait. At the end of the day, we're not so pessimistic.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - Heinz

The medical department has done a great job, but the risk would have been too great [to play him in the first leg]. For the second leg he will 100 per cent be back.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Heinz

Perez and I know what is and what is not possible. He knows that we are not going to get rid of players that we do not want to sell.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Heinz

If there is anyone capable of eliminating the defending champion then maybe it is us.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Heinz

I have met all kinds of different coaches at Bayern Munich. He has made a big impression on me with his composure and the way he looks at his work. He has a beautiful memory in winning the Champions League in Lisbon (with Real against Atletico Madrid) but he has been thinking about this game for some time now and wants to win it at all costs. It will be a very difficult quarer-final for us. We will have to deliver two super games to have a chance of reaching the semi-finals.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Heinz

I can guarantee today that we have not contacted or will contact any of these players.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We are always scouting the whole world so probably the best would be to get one American and one Chinese player. To find some real good quality from there and put it on the pitch, that would be perfect.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Champions League

With Carlo Ancelotti on the bench we can be confident in our biggest challenge this season so far; the Champions League quarter-finals against Real Madrid. When Ian Rush made the draw, we already knew the title holder would be the most difficult challenge of all opponents. If you ask me for the ultimate ranking of European football, I still say that Real Madrid are number one. Real are a myth, the whole world knows the Blancos and gushes about them.feedback

Mar 25 2017

We hope Renato Sanches follows in Alonso's footsteps - that's why we signed him. He has all the necessary qualities, but we will have to be patient with him.feedback

Mar 17 2017

They have won the competition 11 times. Our motivation is great. But there's a law that states that the defending champion does not retain the trophy, so that's in our favour.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Manchester United

I can only agree with Mourinho. No club in the world is able to sign a Bayern Munich player with an ongoing contract if we do not want to sell. I think that both the best German players and the best players abroad look at Bayern in a different way than six or seven years ago. We have made three Champions League finals since 2010 and made the semi-finals five times over the past five years.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - UEFA

And our playing style is very attractive for a lot of players as well. Plus we are able to compete with the other big clubs financially. All in all, Bayern have become a more interesting option for players in recent years. Bayern are behind Real Madrid in the UEFA club ranking, but ahead of Barcelona. That alone is proof of Bayern's reputation in world football. We have consistently proven ourselves at the top. I think only Madrid are ahead of us as a football brand.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Heinz

We have big plans for him in the future. He will be, quite literally, our successor to Philipp Lahm.feedback

Mar 09 2017

Bayern would like to thank a great player and a man who has played the Bayern way on and off the pitch excellently. Xabi Alonso is one of the greats of world football. He has won everything in his career. He is also an outstanding personality, a gentleman of football.feedback

Mar 08 2017

It will do us good not to be seen as the favourites in the Champions League. We're in the quarter-finals now but every other team that has, or will, qualify will provide tough opposition.feedback

Mar 08 2017

We shouldn't start dreaming but instead wait patiently to see who we draw in the quarter-finals.feedback

Mar 04 2017 - Heinz

In any case, I think he will stay in Turin, as we have a pretty clear agreement with Juventus.feedback

Mar 04 2017 - Heinz

With Coman we have an option that is valid until April 30. He had a few difficulties after the Euros, but lately has returned to his usual level. We will probably activate the option to buy. Benatia's talent cannot be debated, but unfortunately he has been penalised by some physical problems.feedback

Jan 08 2017

He'll be responsible for the football, he's the link between coach and team, coach and club, scouting, youth academy.feedback

Jan 08 2017 - Heinz

He hasn't signed his contract yet, but it will run until 2020.feedback

Jan 08 2017

With Hasan, we get someone who knows Bayern, who has worked here as a pro. He's extremely hard-working, always giving 100 per cent. He hasn't signed his contract yet, but it will run until 2020.feedback

Sep 06 2016 - UEFA

Real Madrid who, as everybody knows last year won the Champions League title, and kicking out in the semis Manchester City but at the end, Manchester City got much more money thanks to the market pool than Real Madrid as winner, and I believe that was not very fair and serious and that had been a bit corrected by UEFA.feedback

Aug 30 2016

We can learn a lot from other U.S. sports how they are doing their job in digital or in media. We are not so arrogant [to] believe that we, our way is the one is the most successful. ... We have to respect the culture of the market. The culture is different in America than Germany.feedback

Jul 11 2015

I regret that because Bastian was an extremely deserving player for us. He has done great things. I can only wish all the best to Bastian. It will be an interesting task for him.feedback

Feb 04 2015

Udo Lattek was one of the most successful German coaches. For decades he was also one of the big personalities of the sport, nationally and internationally.We have lost one of the big men of Bayern Munich, a personal supporter and a friend.feedback
