Bayern Munich chairman Rummenigge confident Super League dead; takes aim at Juventus president Agnelli

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge believes Super League plans are "definitively over".

Real Madrid and Barcelona continue to insist the project is alive.

"The subject is definitely over. That was a warning shot," Rummenigge told BILD. "In the end, it is perhaps even a good thing that we had this circus for 48 hours which upset the whole world.

"It has led to business people, who are numerous in football, understanding that football ticks a little differently to just business."

Rummenigge said one of the reasons he resisted getting Bayern involved was because he did not have the same profile as someone like Agnelli, 45, who sits on the boards of Fiat and the investment company Exor.

"Andrea comes from a different generation and is a different type of person to me," added the 65-year-old Rummenigge. "I, myself, played football, I always thought I had a responsibility to football, not just to money."
