Beckenbauer blasts Blues-bound Ballack

Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer has accused Michael Ballack of already mentally being at Chelsea after claiming the midfielder underperformed in the DFB-Pokal Final, which the Bavarian giants won 1-0 over Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 29-year-old midfielder is expected to leave the Bavarian club when his contract expires in the summer and some reports in Germany say Ballack has decided on Chelsea.

As far as Beckenbauer is concerned, German international Ballack is already playing for the Blues.

'Ballack is just saving his strength for Chelsea,' Beckenbauer told ZDF television after the final.

Ballack has not been at his best recently and Beckenbauer, it seems, will be happy to see the back of him this summer.

'Sometimes I think to myself, is he playing with us or not?' added Beckenbauer, known in Germany as 'Der Kaiser'.

'The way he (Ballack) runs around the field has little to do with football.

'He isn't trying anymore and I was waiting for him to be substituted.'

Ballack replied: 'It doesn't matter what he (Beckenbauer) thinks.

'I'm delighted about the (Cup) title, which is the third in four years.

'All that matters is we have won, but if Der Kaiser says that...' he added with a smile.

Beckenbauer simply replied: 'He knows I am right!'
