Bayern announce Real friendly

07 June 2010 05:39
Bayern Munich have confirmed that they will entertain Spanish giants Real Madrid in a mouthwatering pre-season friendly at the Allianz Arena to honour former club president Franz Beckenbauer. Der Kaiser stepped down from his role in January and, although he retains a honorary presidential position, the Bavarians have announced they will officially commemorate the legend in the fixture on Friday August 13. The game will take place just before Bayern's first competitive game of the season when Louis van Gaal's men open up their defence of the DFB-Pokal with an opening round trip to fifth division side Germania Windeck in Cologne on the Saturday or Sunday.
