Munich (dpa) – Almost two weeks before the one-year anniversary at FC Bayern Munich, President Herbert Hainer has expressed his greatest wish for the second year.
“On the morning after the 8-2 victory over FC Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, I was especially concerned about the lack of fans: you don’t experience magical nights that often – and if you beat Barça 8-2, a Barça with you. Lionel Messi mind you, then your heart bleeds that no supporter should experience these emotions on the spot, “Hainer said in the member magazine” 51 “. “My biggest wish for my second year in office: that the fans can return to the stadium.”
Nothing will come of it in the coming weeks. Professional football may also continue to play during the tightened Corona restrictions, but in any case without a spectator.
Hainer (66), who was chosen a year ago to succeed Uli Hoeneß (68), looks back on an “ extremely moving year with many great moments and huge successes – but we have had a state of emergency for months because of Corona around the world Said the former Adidas boss.
He has yet to wait for his first annual general meeting, which Hainer starts as president. Contrary to usual, this does not take place in November; FC Bayern had postponed it until April 15, 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
