Ex-Bayern Munich president hopes that his old club continues to reign over Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness taunted Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for not having the privilege to lift the Champions League trophy.

The Premier League club was purchased by members of the royal family from the United Arab Emirates. Whereas, the French side was bought by members of the royal family from Qatar.

However, neither team have managed to bring the European glory home, despite spending millions of dollars to build a world-class squad.

City reached their first Champions League final last season but saw defeat at the hands of Chelsea. Meanwhile, PSG lost to Bayern Munich in the final of the European tournament the year before that.

Taking into account all of this, Hoeness said on the 11 Leben podcast: “So far these two clubs [PSG and Manchester City] have not won anything. Nothing at all.

They will lose to us again. Not always, but from time to time. That should be our goal. And when we beat them, that makes me very happy. Show them: ‘Your sh*tty money is not enough’.”

Hoeness also fired shots at PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi by saying: “I don’t know if he likes football.”

“The difference between him and I? I worked hard to earn my money and he received it as a gift.”
