Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has called on the uefa to introduce a new seeding system in the UCL draws in order to protect the teams that qualify as big teams.
Bayern saw off Serie A champions, Juventus in the last 16 of the UCL and Rummenigge hopes a new system can be implemented that’ll help keep the big teams in the competition longer.
“What I don’t like about the Champions League draw for the knockout stages is that it all depends on fate,” Rummenigge told reporters.
“UEFA should consider an alternative with seeded teams or something similar.
“I saw some games in the first knockout stage where I came close to switching off the TV.
“And now we see a team like Juventus – who made it to the final last season – crash out in the round of 16.
“This is no longer acceptable. I am fed up with how fate plays such a big role.”
