Uli Hoeness: Worried by Bundesliga

The German champions-elect have sealed their 23rd title with six games to spare and are now just one win away from matching the record number of points for a season, set by Borussia Dortmund last year.

Those two clubs seem set to dominate German football for years to come, but Hoeness hopes a duopoly such as the one in Spain with Barcelona and Real Madrid does not become reality in the Bundesliga.

"There has been a huge dip in the competitiveness of the league and we can't be happy with that," he told Kicker magazine. "We've got to analyse why that is the case."

Bayern's recent 9-1 hammering of Hamburg and a goal difference of plus 70 after 29 games is proof of the gulf which has opened up at the top.

Second-placed Dortmund, who put six past Greuther Furth on Saturday, have scored 72 goals this season, almost 20 more than anybody below them, and the two Champions League semi-finalists appear to be in a league of their own this year.

Hoeness hopes his side will be put to a more serious test next season.

"We see the need for action," he said. "It is not on that we see such results."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
