Bayern and DFB want to impose a salary limit on European football
Bayern Munich and the DFB want UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin to impose a salary limit on European football. DBF President Fritz Keller criticized the “absurd salaries and transfer fees” he now feels while characterizing the game’s top. Keller said he had spoken with Bayern’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge about the idea and that the pair are in agreement, and as a result, will make a proposal to UEFA. “There are ridiculous salaries and transfer fees that are no longer trustworthy,” Keller told reporters. “We should talk about salary checkers.” So, we will write a letter to UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin.”
We must deliver professional football closer to the people again
Karl-Heinz referred to the idea in an interview on the weekend, noting that former UEFA president Michel Platini proposed it many years ago, touting the idea of following the payroll cashback model used in the United States. According to him, Platini had the support of the largest clubs in Europe, but “they told us from the very beginning that this could not be brought into line with competition laws.” Keller added: “The result should be a regulation that is consistent with European law and also applicable to Britain.” We must deliver professional football closer to the people again. “The ongoing crisis has brought to light the problems in football that were previously overshadowed by new transfer records.” The current world transfer record is €222 million (£198 million/$263 million) Paris Saint-Germain spent on signing Neymar from Barcelona.
The “bigotry” of millionaires of football
In the post-apocalyptic world, a record is unlikely to be broken shortly. Ex-Bayern president Uli Hoeness has said he doesn’t believe that there will be €100m transfers in the coming years. At the same time, Juventus sports director Fabio Paratici predicted that football would begin to duplicate the NBA. That would mean an expansion in player swap transactions, rather than direct money transfers. Away from such questions, Keller also confirmed that the dispute between himself and Rummenigge had been resolved. Keller made some derogatory comments about the “bigotry” of football millionaires, who Rumennigge set about aiming at Bayern. Still, now he says they talked about it and put it behind them.
