Bayern need Sami says Beckenbauer
Franz Beckenbauer believes Bayern Munich need a player like Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira after two trophy-less seasons.
Bayern have failed to win a trophy in the past two seasons after missing out on the Bundesliga title to Borussia Dortmund on both occasions before losing on penalties to Chelsea in the final of the UEFA Champions League. Meanwhile, Khedira has matured into one of Germany's strongest midfielders in recent years and become just the kind of player Beckenbauer says Bayern have been lacking. "Khedira is one of those prototypes - one who is prepared to sacrifice himself for the sake of the team," Bayern's honorary president told the Tz newspaper. "You can hardly find those kinds nowadays, and you really need players like that in your team."
