Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has said that he is extremely surprised about the decision by John Terry to put his team in the firing line in the second leg of the semi-final match against Barcelona a few weeks ago.
When Bayern Munich won the European Cup three times in a row in the 70’s each was controversy. In particular the 1975 final still hurts many Leeds United fans. As a club who have never won Europe’s premier competition Leeds came so close to tasting success in ’75 only to be cheated out of it.
Peter Lorimer scored a perfectly good goal for Leeds early in the match. The referee initially saw nothing wrong with it, but after a quiet word in the ear from Franz Beckenbauer he was persuaded to consult his linesman who Beckenbauer also talked into disallowing the goal.
There are 10 minutes to go in a tense match between Bayern Munich and Stuttgart that will go some way to deciding the Bundesliga title.
Arjen Robben dances past three defenders as he makes his way down the right wing. he jinks into the box, dragging the defenders into all sorts of positions, before firing the ball across goal to his team-mate.
The ball dribbles through to Miroslav Klose who is all of one yard away from the goal line. All he has to do is tap the ball to put Bayern into the lead, and give them the advantage in the title race.
I love watching this video... lol
Sir Alex Ferguson was angered by the behaviour of Bayern Munich's players as Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League on away goals.
Ferguson felt referee Nicola Rizzoli was pressured into showing United defender Rafael his second yellow card.
Ferguson said: "The young boy showed a bit of inexperience but they got him sent off, everyone sprinted towards the referee - typical Germans."
