Munich – The new Bayern president Herbert Hainer has confirmed that despite the difficult situation of the soccer Bundesliga in the Corona crisis, he is optimistic about the future.
«The situation is of course very tense, it is about the existence of individual clubs. And FC Bayern is also facing a major financial challenge, which is no secret. But our association is excellently positioned, »said Hainer in the member magazine« 51 ». “We work every day to ensure that FC Bayern steers through this phase without great damage, and we are confident about the future despite this immense task.”
As the successor to Uli Hoeness, Hainer has been President of the German soccer record champion since November and also Chairman of the Supervisory Board of FC Bayern. The longtime Adidas boss expects the corona crisis to affect the transfer market.
«Although it is difficult to make reliable predictions, as I said, it is obvious that there will be changes. I agree with Uli Hoeness when he assumes that the transfer amounts will decrease. It is logical: if the income drops, there is less money in total in the cycle. And in view of the economic impact of the corona crisis on people’s everyday lives, unprecedented millions of dollars are even less justifiable than they already were, »said the 65-year-old. “My hope is that more reason will come here too.”
