Former team captain Stefan Effenberg returns to FC Bayern in an official role. 20 years after leaving the club, the controversial former professional will play for the "Legends" team of the Munich record champions. "It's a nice feeling to return to FC Bayern as an ambassador. FC Bayern is always referred to as a family - that's exactly how it feels, even today. Anyone who knows me knows: I don't do things by halves," Effenberg was quoted in a club announcement.
The 54-year-old won the league three times with FC Bayern and the Champions League and World Cup in 2001. Effenberg played in Munich from 1990 to 1992 and from 1998 to 2002. They are very happy to "welcome him as a new ambassador," said Marketing Director Andreas Jung.
