Holders became the latest side not to retain the European Cup after heavy loss to Madrid in midweek.
Bayern Munich’s honorary president Franz Beckenbauer has heavily criticised the Bavarian giants following their limp exit from the Uefa Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid earlier this week, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The Bundesliga and European champions were hammered 4-0 by Los Blancos in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night to be eliminated from Europe’s premier club competition 5-0 on aggregate.
And their 4-0 thrashing by the La Liga giants was also their heaviest-ever home loss in the European Cup, and now the former Bayern captain has laid into Pep Guardiola’s side, claiming that all is not currently well with the team under the Spaniard, and that the club’s glaring weaknesses have now been laid bare for all to see by Madrid.
“Bayern are not right. This is something that we have known for weeks. The disappointment is huge,” Beckenbauer was quoted as saying in Spanish sports daily Marca.
“Real have a magnificent team at the moment and our limitations have been exposed to a certain extent.”
Bayern have won the German Super Cup, Bundesliga, Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa World Club Cup under the former FC Barcelona manager’s guidance so far in his debut campaign in charge in Bavaria, while they are also in the final of the German Cup against arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund in Berlin next month.
