FC Bayer Munich remembers Andreas Brehme

“I am deeply affected and shocked by the news of Andreas Brehme’s passing. We played together in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico and Andi was a great team man, extremely loyal and reliable. His joy of living was always contagious and the fact that that he had to leave us at just 63 makes me very sad.” Karl-Heinz Rummenigge thus remembers Andreas Brehme, former player of the Bavarians, on the Bayern Munich website.
