Der Kaiser has taken an exceedingly dim view of Bayern’s shellacking at the hands of Barca.
“This is a catastrophe,” Beckenbauer told Premiere Television after the 4-0 defeat against Barcelona. “This is schoolboy stuff. The first half was the worst I have ever seen Bayern play.”
Bayern now wait at home for Barca to nail the coffin shut. More problematic is their insipid form in the Bundesliga. They lag behind VFL Wolfsburg, SV Hamburger and Hertha Berlin in the race for the title with Stuttgart and Hoffenheim breathing hard down their neck. They face Eintracht Frankfurt this Saturday, a club which seems to showing signs of revival.
If Klinsi slips up against Eintracht, he could be out of a job. Sunil Gulati may still be very, very interested.
