BYE BAY BAYERN MUNICH supporters have called for “all autocrats” to leave football.
It came as fans in attendance of the clash against Manchester City unveiled a banner calling for the owners of both Manchester United and City to leave the clubs.
Bayern Munich fans put up a banner calling on the Glazers and Sheikh Mansour to leave their clubs
The sale process of Man Utd has reportedly entered a third stage
Midway through the second-half, the Bayern fans revealed the banner which read: “Glazers, Sheikh Mansour, all autocrats out! Football belongs to the people.”
However, a large section of City fans responded to it by chanting the name of Sheikh Mansour.
The owners of cross-town rivals United are looking to sell the club after 18 years of ownership which has seen continued protests against them.
The talks to take over the Red Devils have reportedly entered a third round of discussions, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatar Sheikh Jassim Bin Al Thani still in the running.
However, the Glazers are said to be holding out for a staggering fee of £6billion, while the highest bid so far has only reached £5bn.
Such a takeover would be unthinkable in Germany due to the 50+1 fan ownership model operated in the country.
It ensures fans have the power to make major decisions on their club’s future.
Amid the protests, Bayern were thrashed 3-0 by Pep Guardiola’s City as individual errors summarised a below-par showing from the German champions.
A stunning goal from Rodri was followed up by second half goals from Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland, putting the hosts in control of the tie before the second leg at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern had sacked ex-boss Julian Nagelsmann and appointed Thomas Tuchel in order to keep their treble hopes alive.
However, since the move they have been knocked out of the DFB-Pokal by Freiburg and are now set for European elimination.
