Bayern’s chairman of the board of directors Rummenigge said in an interview that Dortmund has more time to rest and prepare than Bayern, but he is not worried about this. He believes that Bayern players will be able to play for two consecutive seasons under Flick’s leadership. Success.
Rummenigge said: "I think Dortmund has high expectations for this season. They have an advantage over us. The players have been given a long break and then concentrated on preparing for a long time."
"When we won the Champions League and left Lisbon, we were the absolute champions. But the next Bundesliga opener against Schalke, time is back to square one, we have to prove it again."
"But I really don't worry about this. Bayern has left a very deep impression on me in terms of personality. The club's management also has a lot of confidence in Flick. Our coach is so good and so down to earth. Bayern has rarely had such a coach before. This is a strong guarantee for our success again this season."
Speaking of Bayern’s chasers, Rummenigge said: “Even though Havertz has left, I expect Leverkusen will continue to chase us. Leipzig also has high expectations for coach Nagelsmann. Should be underestimated."
