Rummenigge: Bayern not arrogant ahead of Champions League final

The club chairman has made it clear that the Bavarians will not underestimate Dortmund ahead of this weekend’s showpiece at Wembley

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted that Bayern Munich will not get carried away ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.

The Bavarians are by many seen as the favourites following their dominance in the Bundesliga and their impressive displays against Barcelona in the semi-finals of European club football’s elite competition, but the club’s CEO has warned that anything can happen in this weekend’s showpiece.

“Bayern have been very stable throughout the season and we have been playing some fantastic football,” he told reporters.

“We are not arrogant or pretentious heading into Saturday’s game, though. We know that this is a final and that anything can happen. We will not do anything different than in a normal game.

“Last year an English team won the final in Munich, we hope that his year a Munich team will win in England.

“I don’t think that there’s a single person in Germany who would begrudge Jupp Heynckes the Champions League title.”

Saturday’s match at Wembley kicks off at 20:45CET.
