January 7th today is the famous Bayern star Dieter Hoeness (former honorary chairman of Bayern Hoeness
Brother)’s 70th birthday, he accepted an interview with Bayern’s official website and reviewed his career.
Kahn saved three penalties in the 2001 Champions League final, Robben at Wembley in 2013, Schweinsteiger in the 2014 World Cup final, and you in the 1982 German Cup final (Bayern 4-2 Nuremberg)
), what are your thoughts on this iconic image?
You’ll be proud, obviously you’ve made your mark.
But in my opinion, creating a legend is a bit too exaggerated.
At that point I was just focused on my work and wanted to give my all in this game, as I always do.
But it’s obviously a good thing that young people who weren’t around at the time are now talking to you about it.
Injury makes you an idol, is there no pain for a hero?
In a race like this, you’re just pumped with adrenaline and really don’t feel any pain.
This is not an ordinary game, but the final of the German Cup.
Also, we were down 0-2 when I got hit.
In a situation like this, as a pro, you throw everything away.
But I double checked.
Müller-Wolfart checked me carefully, including eye tests and so on, until concussion was ruled out and it was clear that I could continue playing.
If we were up 3-0, I would probably have stayed in the dressing room at half-time.
But the thing is, I had my stitches done at half-time, I was in pain, and even though Moore is a medical genius, he didn’t have time to give me anesthesia.
Now the team doctor will fix it.
The biggest problem was the bleeding and I didn’t get better until the second half.
Until then, bandages have no effect, so the solution is that famous bandana.
You scored a header with a bandage on your head
As a footballer, you have to bite the bullet sometimes.
And I’m not as dizzy as Cramer, who had to ask the referee in the 2014 World Cup final if the game was a World Cup final.
During my playing days, I generally had my brain waves measured regularly.
Otherwise, the price is too high.
Now you are bound to the history of Bayern
This sounds great! I am very proud because I can be part of the history of Bayern, after all, I have scored a few goals in the follow-up, such as some important goals in the European war.
Shaped by Bayern.
Those eight years at Bayern were a wonderful time and I learned a lot.
The most impressive player in football history
1974 Bayern vs Atletico Madrid Champions League final replay.
I was watching the first game and Schwarzenberg scored in the 120th minute.
Unfortunately, I can only watch the rematch on TV.
What Gerd Müller and my brother Uli Souness did that night will always be in my heart.
Both scored brilliant goals in such an important game, they made history.
You scored five goals in 21 minutes against Brunswick in February 1984, coincidentally this time you had a bandage on your left thigh
I actually wanted to be substituted at halftime in that game.
I was in pain after hurting a leg.
But we only lead 1-0 with Rummenigge’s goal.
At that time, the coach Ratke said: "You have to stay on the field." I said that I basically couldn’t go, but with Moore’s blessing, my idea was rejected.
To be honest, the ball just fell to my feet in the second half.
As a striker there are some games you just can’t go off.
That record stood for a long time, but Lewandowski scored five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg in 2015.
When did you experience difficulty?
While there was always a rivalry between the two of us, it wasn’t just about him.
In our environment, you have to work hard.
Our parents set an example for us in the butcher shop.
Of course, if you have a brother who’s a year older than you, and he’s not entirely unambitious, you have to stick to your guns.
Relatively speaking, I was his age very early on.
By the way, at that time I was always a goalkeeper, through the youth national team, until one day I played as a striker in the second half, and I was never a goalkeeper again.
In a way, this made me nervous.
As a goalkeeper, if you are 1-0 down, you can do nothing but defend the ball.
This is not what I want.
I want to have more influence on the outcome of the game.
People always say that your brother was the general manager when he moved to Bayern
Basically it goes like this.
Former chairman William Neudecker told me years later at his birthday party that he was the one who told Uli to bring me in, before he even officially became general manager.
I am very happy that it all worked out and that Uli has become a decisive figure for Bayern.
Some English clubs want to sign you because of your header
I remember during the pre-season we beat Nottingham Forest 5-1 and after scoring three goals I got a lot of offers from England and from Italy, Heynckes wanted to bring me to Borussia, but
For me, Bayern is the only option.
I feel at home at Bayern.
We had to fight for the title and one or two points at the end could decide the title and it was a good time for me.
I’ll never forget 1986, we played Werder Werder on the last matchday
