Former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has condemned Jurgen Klopp and says the Borussia Dortmund coach went too far with his comments about Matthias Sammer.
Klopp recently stated that Bayern’s sporting director (Matthias Sammer) contributes nothing to the Bavarians and should consider himself lucky to be in the job after Sammer had previously criticised Dortmund’s workrate.
Kahn has admitted that Sammer should not have commented on other clubs’ training regimes, but didn’t hide the fact that Klopp crossed the line with his reaction.
“The war of words between Matthias Sammer and Jurgen Klopp has been the main talking point in Germany in the past few days,” Kahn wrote in his column for Bild.
“Sammer perhaps should not have made those comments, but we cannot discard Klopp’s comments that easily.
“His remark that Sammer does not contribute anything to Bayern was disrespectful and shameless.
“And on top of all that, he is actually wrong, too. It is not a coincidence that Bayern’s recent dominance started with the arrival of Sammer in 2012. He is perfectly suited for Bayern.”
