Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has paid tribute to Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaia for the work she is doing at Stamford Bridge.
Granovskaia is the owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich’s right-hand man at the West London club.
The 46-year-old has become one of the most powerful leaders in world football.
It has built a reputation for its smart business in transfer transactions.
Speaking to Athletic, Rummenigge said: “I am curious to see if there will be a club in Europe that can achieve balance this season.
“It will be a challenge, even for us. We have lost between 4 and 5 million euros per game, you can find out what that means in total.
“After more than 1 year without fans, the loss of income has been much greater for the big clubs. Some of the smaller clubs, which depend on the sale, will also suffer real damage. Maybe there are 2 or 3 clubs that can buck the trend.
“Chelsea’s numbers, for example, seem very positive. Small port [Granovskaia] he has done a very good job. But we won’t see any all-time records drop this summer, that’s for sure. “
