Bayern happy to be role models

President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claims Bayern Munich are the ideal role model for other clubs to follow during difficult financial times.
The Bundesliga giants were named fourth on Deloitte's latest list of Europe's most profitable clubs and Rummenigge was pleased with the outcome.
"I think Bayern Munich are unique, both at home and abroad. I'm lucky enough to be reminded of this all the time, especially when I'm travelling," he told the club's official website.
"Our club is hugely respected in the world of football, not just because it's successful, but because it's reliable and solid. Bayern have become the figurehead for German football.
"We don't build success on debt and this goes down very well with outside observers and is often held up as an example for other clubs and associations.
"Bayern are successful, but not on borrowed money. We succeed with money we've previously earned ourselves."
