  • Record profit for FC Barcelona


    FC Barcelona can afford it: left-back Jordi Alba comes from Valencia for 14 million euros.

  • Bayern is as good as Barcelona and Real


    Ribery thinks that Bayern can not afford to lose more against Dortmund. "That was brutal, it was too much for my head," Ribery said. "Never in our lives should we have lost that game. "We played great, had lots of possession and chances and we were 1-0 up with just a few minutes remaining. "Then we conceded the equalizer, Robben missed a penalty in extra time and then we have that penalty shoot-out. "I will never forget that for as long as I live." The defeats to Dortmund were equally painful and Ribery wants to start by redressing that issue in the German Super Cup on August 12. "We can no longer afford to lose to them," he told the Bild newspaper. "We are completely under pressure. "The Super Cup in a few weeks is our first real test and we have got to send out a signal and beat Dortmund.


  • Germany won’t stand a chance at 2014 World Cup


    Rummenigge doesn’t believe that Germany has a chance to win the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. No European team has ever won the World Cup in South America and Rummenigge believes that this trend will continue in 2014. He said: “I don’t share the opinion of some Bayern players that Germany will be the world champion in 2014. I fear it won’t be different this time: a country from South America like Brazil or Argentina will win. They will try to compensate for the loss at the last two World Cups.”
