Bayern Munich Official Criticizes Opponents For Declining Request To Move Season Start
Bayern Munich Exec Chair Karl-Heinz Rummenigge "criticized the club's Bundesliga opponents after they declined his request to delay the start of the league for another week," according to the AUGSBURGER ALLGEMEINE. At a manager meeting, Rummenigge "proposed to delay the start of the '14-15 Bundesliga, which will kick off on Aug. 22, for another week." Rummenigge: "The proposal was declined with the statement it is the only chance to create problems for Bayern." He added, "I'm missing solidarity toward clubs that sent numerous players to the World Cup." The decision "also affects Borussia Dortmund" (AUGSBURGER ALLGEMEINE, 7/19).
