Bayern didn't bail Dortmund out: Watzke

BVB’s general manager admitted that they did receive money from the Bavarian club but says it made little difference to their financial stability and insists it would not have happened had he been in charge. “There has been a 2 million euros credit from FC Bayern, but not for me.”In 2004 Bayern paid that money to my predecessors. And, regardless of that 2 million euros, BVB was nearly bust in 2005. I would have rather gone begging than to borrow money from Bayern. “One of my first official acts was to ask the creditors for permission to fully pay back the money, something other creditors only could have wished for.

Bayern Munich has not played any role in helping Borussia Dortmund avoid administration,they got a high rate of interest and all of their money back.If anyone maintains the standpoint that Bayern Munich helped the economical 2.0 version of Borussia Dortmund in any way,they are knowingly telling a falsehood.Bayern have already dethroned Dortmund as Bundesliga champions this season and the two teams go head to head in the league this weekend before their Champions League final clash at Wembley.And after FCB announced that BVB star Mario Gotze would be joining the club in the summer on the eve of the first leg of their semi final tie with Real Madrid Watzke admitted that there is tension between the sides.
