Bayern should not sign Ronaldo, says Fink

Cristiano Ronaldo is still a top player, but Bayern Munich should not bring him to the Allianz Arena.

That is according to former Bayern player Thorsten Fink, who wants the Bundesliga champions to be a “great team” rather than a “team of greats”.

Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Manchester United after reportedly telling the Red Devils he wants to leave in search of Champions League football.

However, Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn appeared to dampen suggestions the club would look to bring in the 37-year-old, who scored 24 goals in 38 games in all competitions for United last season, saying a move recently for the Portugal star “does not necessarily fit with our ideas”.

Fink concurred with Kahn’s assertion, telling Stats Perform:

“Cristiano was and still is a top player, [but] you have to look at how he fits your system and blends into the structure of the team.

“Does a player with his magnitude fit this club and this team? Would others suffer from that? This is what you have to think about. I am sure they talked about this at FC Bayern.

“It is about the system you play, the charisma and magnitude that Cristiano Ronaldo has.

“You either are a ‘team of greats’ or you are a ‘great team’, and I think for FC Bayern, it is important to be a great team and not have great individual players who, in the end, don’t have that character to win things.”

Fink played for Bayern between 1997 and 2003, winning four Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals and the Champions League in 2000-01, and he has been impressed by the business his former club has done in the transfer window.

Although Bayern sold Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, they added Sadio Mane from Liverpool.

As well as duo Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax.

At the same time, another former Ajax man De Ligt is close to finalising a big-money move from Juventus.

Fink said:

“I’m always surprised at what FC Bayern manages to achieve again and again.

“One year you think ‘now everyone’s saying Bayern will not win a title’ or something. I’ve heard it from people again.

“But when you see who they’ve brought in, I have to say ‘chapeau’ to them for bringing players.

“That shows how interesting our league is. And you have to say hats off to FC Bayern. Only Bayern can bring players like that to our country who enhance our league. And that’s why I’m really happy that Mane has come and that De Ligt has also come.

“I can’t wait to see what FC Bayern can achieve.”
