With Bayern Munich having opened up a five-point lead atop the Bundesliga standings, club president Uli Hoeness praised 66-year-old coach Jupp Heynckes while taking a swipe at Jurgen Klinsmann, who coached Bayern in 2008-09.

"With Klinsmann, we had Powerpoint presentations and we spent thousands of euros on computers so that he could show the players in epic proportions how we wanted to play, with the emphasis on the word 'wanted,''' Hoeness told the Donaukurier.

"Heynckes has a flip chart with five marker pens that cost 2.50 [euros] each.

"He draws the opponent's formation on the chart and says a few things about it. We are winning games with Heynckes for 12.50 [euros] whereas we spent lots of money with Klinsmann for little success. A coach is not young or old, he is just good or bad."

    Different strokes for different folks. Me, I personally like Klinsmann! Chalk board or technology. Neither wins games, players do! But, "tools" can assist a coach in developing players. To Kinsmann just lead our USA Men's National Team into the 21st Century of International Association Football. Bring the same energy and enthusiasm to the pitch as a coach as you did as a player.

    And as a club president, you're either and a** or your not.

    Uli fails to mention the 15 milllion euros that he spent on new players AFTER Klinsmann was ousted!! So the real cost is 15,000,012.5 euros!!!!
