Ballack still in Bayern plans

Share |

Bayern Munich still wants their star player to be in the team. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that German Captain Michael Ballack would be welcome to stay at the Allianz Arena if he decides to sign a new contract.

The popular midfielder has failed to agree terms for a new deal with the current Bundesliga champions and is expected to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Rumours continue to grow about which of Europe's top clubs the midfielder will join in the summer, but Rummenigge was keen to let the fans know that Bayern are still keen to reach an agreement with him.

He told us: "If he chooses to stay with us, we would all be happy."

When asked if the club's fans would be happy for Ballack to remain after the protracted contract saga, the chairman added: "That animosity would disappear after he scores the first two goals.

"After scoring them, he would be a hero again."
