Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has praised Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia's astute handling of the Covid financial crisis within football.
The Premier League club recorded a profit of £32.5million for the year ending June 30, 2020 - their last published financial results - despite the early effects of the pandemic being felt.

Bayern Munich will NOT make a move for Erling Haaland, says Rummenigge
Wwhile the road from Dortmund to Bayern is one many of Haaland's predecessors have made, Rummenigge insists the Norwegian will not be heading east to the Allianz Arena this summer.Haaland, 20, is European football's most in-demand forward following his prolific exploits with Borussia Dortmund in German football and across the Champions League.
But while discussing the impact of the Covid pandemic on football, he praised Granovskaia's efforts in keeping Chelsea in decent financial health.
'There are maybe two, or three clubs who are able to buck the trend,' he told
'Chelsea's numbers, for example, look very positive. Marina has done a very good job. But we won't see any all-time high [profit] records tumble this summer, that's for sure.'
Rummenigge added: 'Everyone I talk to wants to reduce their payroll. That also applies to Bayern. Transfer fees went down by 50 per cent last season, which was good, but the wages haven't adjusted downwards accordingly.
