Effenberg blasts Bayern Munich over Lucas Hernandez signing

Former Bayern Munich captain Stefan Effenberg has hit out at his old club after their €80m deal for Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez.

Effenberg criticised the amount of money spent on the Frenchman, considering the figure to be excessive.

"There is only one winner from [Lucas] Hernandez's transfer if we only look at the fee and that's Atletico Madrid," he told T-Online.

"The fee now seems to be normal, but I get stomach-ache.

"That is one of the reasons why fans often have difficulties understand what is happening.

"If things go on like this, we will pay five million euros for a bus driver within five years.

"I would rather spend 80 million euros on midfielders or strikers, which are creative players."
