Is Bayern Munich's stranglehold on the Bundesliga set to end?
Some very interesting news from Germany has surfaced that Professor of Civil Law of the University Osnabrück, Lars Leuschner has encouraged the Munich District Court to delete the Bayern Munich.
Yes, you read that right.. He's hoping they become disbanded. Believe it or not Leuschner is actually a Bayern fan but says that they are not a club anymore in the way that they are registered as.
Because to be a club in Germany, you need to fulfill an "ideologically purpose" at any time and may only have revenues in a subordinate sense. If it exceeds this, it can be deleted. Referring to Section 21 of the Civil Code.
Well, according to trusted German outlet Die Zeit. But apparently, Leuschner doesn't actually want Bayern to be wiped out, just wants to set an example and know under which conditions clubs are allowed to play professional football in Germany.
Leuschner said: "There has developed a certain conception of law, that, if you take it seriously, would cause problems for functioning club structures, which they would not be able to solve."
Though Bayern are set to respond until the 20th September, this is the court's deadline for a statement. In the meantime, saying; "We consider this request unfounded and consider ourselves in consonance with the decision of the highest court."
More to follow.
