The Bayern Munich boss launches a fierce attack on Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City

Both City and PSG have owners from the Middle East, with the former owned by Sheikh Mansour of the UAE, while the latter is under Qatar-based ownership.

These models stand in stark contrast to the 50 + 1 German method, which requires all clubs to own 50% plus an extra share of the football club. This is intended to prevent external investors from claiming a majority stake for themselves.

PSG and City have each reached the last two Champions League finals, with Bayern Munich winning over the French team in 2020, while Pep Guardiola’s men were beaten by Chelsea in May.

These defeats delighted Hoeness, and he delivered a brutal shot at PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

“They will continue to lose against us. Not always, but sometimes. That must be the goal, and if we win against them, I’m really happy.

“That’s what motivates me to show them, ‘your silly money, that’s not enough!’

“The difference between him [Al-Khelaifi] and me is: I worked hard for the money and he got them as a gift. We make it available to him, and he does not have to work for it. When he wants a player, he will find his emir. “

So if Bayern end up meeting PSG this season, you could say the mood can be a bit tense in the director’s box!

Bayern are back in the Bundesliga after the international break on November 19 when they travel to Augsburg.
