The pot unktionär from the German football record Champions FC Bayern Munich, said about the current distribution of TV money: "In Germany there is a very solidary, equitable distribution of TV money: The masters last receives twice as much TV revenue as the table."

At the auction the media rights for the seasons 2021/22 to 2024/25 a total of 4.4 billion euros, that is around 260 million euros less than in the previous TV contract has been redeemed - now there should be discussions about the distribution of the funds.

Many European Clubs have announced their Payroll to shut down. Also, we will be more careful with that," said Rummenigge. The Team of coach Hansi Flick called Rummenigge as "a super team". Nevertheless, there will be Transfers, announced the Bayern boss. "We want to make our squad a little wider. It will be in the next season, many English weeks, with many Games, because we need to have more ready-to-go players in the squad." Rummenigge said in the Interview, but not the names, not the language choice player Leroy Sané from Manchester City.
