Real Madrid Faces Intense Pressure To Win The Champions League Rummenigge

Ruminiga The Bayern Munich president believes the quality in the Champions League is higher this year than ever before.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge knows what is required to win the Champions League, having won the European Cup during his playing days with Bayern Munich.

Speaking with experience, the Bayern president believes that Real Madrid will be forced to win the Champions League in order to justify Florentino Perez’s lucrative summer spending spree.

“The fans and the general public will demand that Real Madrid win the Champions League because of what they have spent,” Rummenigge told

“They are condemned to doing so after Barcelona won every trophy last season. What’s more, the final is in their own stadium [the Santiago Bernabeu].”

Rummenigge’s Bayern Munich side are in Group A of this year’s Champions League alongside Italian giants Juventus, French champions Bordeaux and Israeli champions Maccabi Haifa.

With such a difficult draw, the patron has stated his belief that Europe’s clubs have never been so strong.

“This year, lifting the Champions League trophy has become more difficult than ever,” he affirmed.
