Bayern board defends president in row with fans

Bayern board defends president in row with fans

Bayern Munich's board has condemned a group of fans for "insulting and defaming" club president Uli Hoeness.
A club statement says such behavior is "shameful, unbearable and unacceptable" and contrary to the style of Bayern.
In what the club said was an embarrassing display, a group of fans unfurled banners critical of Hoeness, some of them calling him a "liar."
Hoeness was visibly upset by the slogans. He became the target of radical fans after giving financial help to embattled local second-division rival 1860 Munich as it faced bankruptcy.
