'UCL title would be biggest for Bayern'



Winning the Champions League next week against Chelsea would be the biggest success in Bayern Munich history but there is no reason to underestimate the English opponents, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in an interview published on Tuesday.

"It would the biggest success in club history from a historic point of view - also because we are playing at home," Rummenigge told the local Abendzeitung paper.

Munich play the May 19 final in their Allianz Arena against the Blues, with a home final a very rare occasion in the elite event they won in 1974, 1975, 1976 and 2001.

But Rummenigge warned that Chelsea are not only bidding for their first Champions League trophy but also want to make up for a modest league season and have a group of stars which will not be around much longer.

"We are being made favourites but this Chelsea side reminds me of the Bayern of 1975 and 1976, when we played pretty bad in the league.

"This generation - (Frank) Lampard, (John) Terry, (Didier) Drogba -certainly has an expiry date. And owner Roman Abramovich has been yearning for this title since he started investing the first pound," Rummenigge said.
