Dortmund chief concerned about Bayern growth

Borussia Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke worries Bayern Munich may disappear over the horizon after they raised 110 million euros in a share sale on Tuesday.

German insurance giant Allianz, who already sponsor Bayern's stadium, purchased an 8.33% stake in the club, becoming an equal partner with Adidas and Audi.

"This development was predictable," he said. "They've been negotiating with Allianz for a long time and I can only congratulate them on the deal, but the gulf to the rest of the Bundesliga is obviously going to grow further because of it."
