Bayern Offer Panned

BONN () -- Bayern Munich is under fire for offering midfielder Michael Sternkopf to German Cup finalist Borussia M?nchengladbach at a bargain price if it wins Saturday's soccer final in Berlin against Wolfsburg.


If M?nchengladbach wins, it will move to the Cup Winners' Cup and its UEFA Cup place will go to Bayern, which missed out on a guaranteed spot after finishing sixth in the first division.


"I'm very hurt that a game which has so much history like the Cup final starts smelling of manipulation," said Peter Pander, manager of Wolfsburg's team.
