Uli Hoeness: Worried by Bundesliga

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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
