FC Bayern | Rummenigge: Here the BVB has too irritated us too
In front of a decade, the football world in Germany still looked a bit different. At the beginning of the 2010 years, the BVB had just become German Master twice (10/11, 11/12) and sent himself to dominate the Bundesliga in the coming seasons.
But at the latest in 2012, when Borussia took the double of national title and DFB Cup, Almighty FC Bayern had seen enough. This was followed by a series of nine championships in a row, while black yellow were four times vice masters.
In the BVB, in the person of Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke already, shortly after the Cup final 2012, which the Dortmund has decided with a furious 5: 2 victory for themselves, that this defeat could be the starting signal for a new era of the opponent.
“Around me there was total bliss, but I’ve said then: ‘The echo becomes dramatic’. Dortmund’s biggest mistake was to be too much to irritate FC Bayern 2012,” Watzke explained in recent years again and again.
With this assessment, Watzke was apparently properly properly, as Rummenigge now revealed on television at “Focus BVB” in “Br”. “I can confirm that. There was the mood (at Bavaria) in the basement.”
Rummenigge: The FC Bayern wanted “the shooting away”
As a result of the events and the bitter bankruptcy one advised after the season and together with the then President Uli Hoeneß and coach Jupp Heynckes talks, how to win the upper hand again, says Rummenigge. With success.
“We said: We have to do something to get away from the shooter,” explained the ex-boss and added: “And the year after that we won the triple. That was a fulminant comeback.”
The fact that the Champions League final 2013 was then reconciled against BVB (2: 1), should have been the nonplusultra for Rummenigge and Co..
“We knew exactly that we have to win, no matter what happens. We have to show that we are the best not only in Europe, but also in Germany,” the 66-year-old looked back. “From the day it was in a way a self-runner. The self-confidence was back.”
