"Football belongs to everyone and it is very important that the Ultras realize that they are also an important Element, but not all of it alone may determine", said Hoeness (68) in The "Sonntags-Stammtisch" in BR TV.

"You have not proven to me that you are not so much about the club but to themselves and present themselves", was the long-time Bayern Boss. "If the spirit of the games had not taken place we would have in the first and in the second League or Association that it no longer would be in professional football," said Hoeness on.
