Beckenbauer: Bayern 'far, far, far away' from Euro title

17 April 2015, 21:30

New York - Bayern Munich honorary president Franz Beckenbauer was critical of the players' performance in this week's 3-1 Champions League loss to Porto, saying the club is "far, far, far away" from winning the title.

At a news conference at the team's New York office Friday, Beckenbauer said: "In this game, all players on the field, nada."

Beckenbauer captained West Germany to the 1974 World Cup title and coached his country to the 1990 championship. He was a member of FIFA's executive committee from 2007-11 and was suspended from soccer activities by FIFA for two weeks last June for refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids.

He calls FIFA's choice to stage the 2022 World Cup in Qatar "a very, very strange decision."
