Franz Beckenbauer returns to TV role, confirms Freshfields talks

DFB interim president Reinard Rauball and treasurer Reinard Grindel have spoken about the future of the governing body amid the scandal over the awarding of the 2006 World Cup.

Franz Beckenbauer confirmed he has spoken to investigators about the 2006 World Cup scandal as he resumed his role as a pundit on German television.

Beckenbauer has not worked on Sky TV since mid-October, when Der Spiegel raised questions over a controversial €6.7 million payment made by the German Football Association's (DFB) World Cup organising committee, which he had led.

However, the honorary Bayern Munich president was back in the job ahead of Tuesday's Champions League action, saying:...

Franz Beckenbauer to be questioned over 2006 World Cup - report

Politician Ozcan Mutlu has said Beckenbauer 'buried his head in the sand' by not talking about the German football scandal.
Franz Beckenbauer has been linked to the 2006 World Cup scandal, which Raphael Honigstein says stains Franz's legacy.

External investigator Freshfields is set to question Franz Beckenbauer about his role in the 2006 World Cup scandal, according to Suddeutsche Zeitung.

Honorary Bayern Munich president Beckenbauer, who was head of the World Cup organising committee, has faced a series of questions over his role in securing the tournament for Germany.

The situation led Wolfgang Niersbach, who was also on the organising committee, to resign his role as president of the German FA (DFB) earlier this month.

Franz Beckenbauer criticises new German FA leaders over lack of class

Franz Beckenbauer has been linked to the 2006 World Cup scandal, which Raphael Honigstein says stains Franz's legacy.

Franz Beckenbauer has hit out at the new German FA (DFB) leaders, and told Suddeutsche Zeitung they did not answer a letter in which he offered to talk to them about the ongoing 2006 World Cup scandal.

Last month, German weekly Der Spiegel reported that ahead of the vote for the host country of the 2006 World Cup in 2000, a slush fund of 10.3 million Swiss francs (about $6m at that time) -- with a financial injection from former Adidas CEO Robert Louis-Dreyfus -- was set up to buy the votes of Asian...

Wolfsburg chief 'could understand' if Germany stars did not want to play

The Netherlands trip to Germany was cut short when the friendly was cancelled due to a security threat to the stadium.

Wolfsburg sporting executive Klaus Allofs has told kicker he would understand if the club's Germany internationals did not want to play this weekend.

Four Wolfsburg players including Netherlands international Bas Dost were affected by the cancellation of the Germany against Netherlands friendly amid a "concrete terror threat" in Hanover on Tuesday.

FIFA World Ranking: Belgium stay in top spot, Spain back in top three

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Belgium lack a world class centre-forward to win Euro 2016.

Belgium will remain on top of the FIFA World Ranking for a second month when the new table is published on Dec. 3.

Marc Wilmots led his side into the No. 1 position for the first time in their history in the November ranking, and Friday's night's 3-1 friendly win at home to Italy has proved to be enough to hold onto first place.

Argentina, who drew with Brazil and beat Colombia in World Cup qualifiers, are back up into second place, while Spain are up three to third after being as low as 12th as...
