Felix Magath is not new to controversial ideas about revamping the Bundesliga. This time, in an interview with Hamburger morgenpost,he spoke about the dominance of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
He said,”the clubs that are always in the Champions league have huge advantages. Actually, they need to be removed from national competitions. A European league would be ideal.” He thinks the earnings from the European top competition creates an unfair competitive advantage for the big clubs. Thereby creating a scenario that is prevalent in Spain, Italy, and England.
Magath does not see an end to the dominance of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga as number one. He is of the opinion that the second and third spots belong to Dortmund and Leverkusen respectively.The fourth position could go to any club in the Bundesliga.
What do you guys think about his novel idea of excluding the top teams from competing in national competitions ? Will it make the league more egalitarian ? I do not think so.
