Around 30 years ago, on January 1, 1993, the sports broadcaster DSF went on the air, two years later the football regulars' table "Doppelpass" flickered over the TV sets for the first time on Sunday morning. For this round anniversary, the broadcaster, which has since been renamed Sport1, announced that Uli Hoeneß (71) will take a seat in the cult show on January 22nd. One of the ex-captains of the German record champions, Stefan Effenberg (54), will also take part alongside the long-time Bayern manager. Other guests in the show moderated by Florian König (55) are not yet known.
Uli Hoeneß' appearances in the live show affectionately known as DoPa have been legendary for years. He spontaneously allowed himself to be connected several times by telephone if a conversation did not go to his liking. Most recently in September 2022, when Qatar was the host of the 2022 World Cup. The best-known calls from the Bayern man at the time came in 1996 and 2000, when he was audibly emotionally agitated on the phone and made sweeping statements.
Hoeneß's now equally legendary greenkeeper statement regarding his ex-player Lothar Matthäus (61) was made in 2002 in a "double pass". At that time, Hoeneß spoke as a regular guest about a hypothetical attitude of the former Bayern star who had fallen out of favor. Hoeneß literally: "As long as Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and I have something to say in this club, he won't even be a greenkeeper in the new stadium."
