The losers in the survey reflect the clubs that have to worry about relegation to the league table before the last matchday. So it looks not only footballing gloomy; Only a few Germans would be willing to leave their money to these clubs. Bayern can look forward to a bad season without a title, the Germans see them at least as far as finances are concerned. 69% of those surveyed had no problem with entrusting their money to Bayern and Uli Hoeneß. The result is understandable considering that, according to Forbes, Bayern are the world’s fourth-richest football club, ahead of FC Barcelona (April 2011). Also, the German champions Borussia Dortmund, for this weekend it is probably mainly about celebrations, is perceived as creditworthy. Just like the Leverkusen Werkself. After all, 55% voted positive about the creditworthiness of Leverkusen. Here is the entire ranking at a glance:
