Bayern Munich honorary president Ui Hoeness has launched a scathing attack on Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City, after both clubs' newly-found wealth has seen them challenge for the top honours in the game.
Both City and PSG have owners from the Middle East, with the former owned by Sheikh Mansour from the UAE, while the latter are under a Qatari-based ownership.
These models are in sharp contrast to the 50+1 German method, which requires all of the clubs to own 50% plus one additional share of the football company. This is aimed at stopping external investors from claiming a majority percentage for themselves.
Those defeats delighted Hoeness and he delivered a brutal shot towards PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
"So far they haven't won anything. Nothing at all. The two associations don't have a single Champions League title," he told 11 Leben podcast, in quotes published by the Manchester Evening News.
"They will continue to lose against us. Not always, but sometimes. That has to be the goal, and if we win against them, I'm really happy.
"This is what stimulates me to show them, 'your s****y money, that's not enough!'
"The difference between him [Al-Khelaifi] and me is: I worked hard for the money and he got it as a gift. We put it at his disposal and he doesn't need to work for that. When he wants a player, he will find his emir. "
So, if Bayern do end up facing PSG this season, you could say that the atmosphere may be a bit tense in the directors' box!
Bayern are back in Bundesliga action after the international break on 19th November, when they travel to Augsburg.
