‘Der Kaiser’ interview

After interviewing Borussia Dortmund’s star pair of Marco Reus and Mario Götze midweek for UEFA, one of our reporters also caught up with Franz Beckenbauer before Bayern’s pivotal cup clash with Borussia Dortmund. ‘Der Kaiser’ is a true legend of football, particularly here in Munich. The sweeper racked up nearly 500 appearances for FC Bayern München, winning a career total of five Bundesliga titles, four domestic cups and three European cups. He not only won a European Championship and a World Cup with West Germany but also guided his country, as a manager, to the World Cup in 1990. Beckenbauer was not only a revolutionary player in his position but is also rightfully considered one of the greatest players of all time. Be sure to check out the interview on de.UEFA.com!
