Dieter Hoeneß: Of course one fever with, for me, football is always connected with passion. And if the son bears the responsibility, it is clear that I wish him success. But that has nothing to do with the league, that was the same with the U19. If you go on the court, you want to win.
VIP News: That went well against a potential aspirant today.
Hoeness: The Bayern have made a very good game and deserved to win. All you have to do is score more and decide the game sooner. But the spectators saw great moves, there was an accumulation of chances.
VIP News: What do you do if you do not watch football matches? You were a successful player and manager - and now?
Hoeness: I founded two companies and am involved in football consulting. In particular, we advise young players with one company. Because I want to pass on what I have learned over more than 40 years in professional football. That's great fun for me.
VIP News: A question to your brother Uli: Has she surprised the subject of his possible withdrawal?
Hoeness: There were many requests on the subject, but I did not say anything about that. This is the job of Uli, to set the time and also his decision and then to comment.
