The Bayern Munich president was ‘smiling’ in the Champions League draw, prompting Barcelona to criticize disrespect

Bayern Munich president Oliver Kahn was seen smiling after his team drew with Barcelona in Group C of the Champions League.

There is a lot of recent history between the two teams as Bayern beat Barcelona 8-2 just two years ago.

The pair also met last season with Bayern winning both group matches 3-0.

In fact, Barcelona have won only one of their last eight games against Bayern – and that may have prompted some sections of the Spanish press to respond poorly to Kahn’s smile.

The Catalan newspaper Sport accused the former goalkeeper of disrespect, a charge he denied.

In response, Khan said, “This explanation is really completely out of the blue.”

Others have reacted more positively to the draw, such as Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller looking forward to a clash with former team-mate Robert Lewandowski after the striker moved to the Nou Camp this summer.

“Mr. Levangoalski, see you soon in Munich. Looking forward to it,” Mueller wrote on Instagram.

Group C is rated as the Group of Death as both teams will have to beat Inter Milan and Viktoria Plzen to advance.

Meanwhile, there will be another high profile comeback in Germany as Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has been drawn against ex-Borussia Dortmund.

City will imagine their chances of winning a group that also includes Sevilla and Copenhagen.

The other three English teams in the competition – Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham – will also be confident.

The Reds are drawn against Ajax and Napoli and have a mouth-watering match against Rangers.

Chelsea also have favorable confrontations against AC Milan, Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb – but Spurs are arguably the easiest of contenders.

Tottenham will face Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting Lisbon and Marseille – a draw that some fans feel is so easy that they have jokingly accused Tottenham youth coach Yaya Toure of fixing the draw.
