Boris on Bayern

The Fantasy Football Club studio welcomed tennis legend Boris Becker on Friday night.

Last Updated: 20/04/13 at 18:40 Post Comment

The German won three Wimbledon titles, the earliest when he was just 17, as well as two Australian Open crowns, one US Open trophy and the Davis Cup twice during his stellar career.

But Becker, who now often appears as part of Sky Sports' tennis punditry team, also loves his football, so much so that he served on the board of his beloved Bayern Munich for 10 years.

The 45-year-old told Fenners and Merse about the pain of watching the Bavarian giants lose to English clubs in Champions League finals when he entered our dressing room, but he had plenty of other stories to share, too, including:

- Why seven is his lucky number

- Which world renowned footballers he has played with

- Whether he could have been a professional footballer

- Which sports stars he idolised as a child

Hit the video at the top of the screen to see what Becker had to say.

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
