Kahn: Chelsea Bought Champions League Victory


The Bayern Munich former goal keeper and superstar, Oliver Kahn, has stated that the Champion’s League victory of Chelsea in 2012 is proof that the club bought the trophy.

Chelsea had beat Bayern Munich with a 4-3 score on penalties after the match had ended in 1-1 draw. Kahn however, claims the result was proof of how money can buy results and wins in sports.

Kahn mentioned in a recent interview, “It is the deciding factor. For promotion to the Bundesliga, you now need a budget of €20 million to €25m. To win the Champions League €300m. Abramovich bought the title but what makes [Chelsea] any different to Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern?”.
