Confessing Beckenbauer’s Confession to the Inter due to North Korea
German football legend Franz Beckenbauer confessed that he had sought to transfer to Italy 안전놀이터
Germany’s Sport 1 said in an interview with Franz Beckenbauer on the 23rd (Korea time) that he had pushed for the transfer to Serie A Inter, Italy.
Franz Beckenbauer is a legend of German football, who played for Bayern Munich and West Germany when he was a player. As a player, Beckenbauer was the only defender to have won the Ballon d’Or twice, in 1972 and 1976.
In an interview, Beckenbauer was asked about his unfulfilled dream and mentioned that he could not play in Serie A, Italy, the top football league of the time.
“I couldn’t experience the atmosphere with 100,000 spectators at the San Siro stadium in Germany,” he said. It took me by storm and I almost went there.
Beckenbauer showed great interest at Inter in 1966. However, the transfer was unsuccessful because the Italian Football Association banned foreigners from recruiting foreigners. This is because Italy was eliminated after losing to North Korea in the 1966 World Cup in England.
Italy lost 0-1 to North Korea’s Pak Du-ik, who was a sensation at the time. In response, Italy banned foreign players from Serie A and other domestic leagues in order to improve their skills.
Beckenbauer said, “It was quite embarrassing that we were banned from recruiting foreigners. I really wanted to go to Inter.
