Bayern Munich Offices Raided by Money Laundering Investigators : FC Bayern Munich headquarters and stadium have been raided as authorities establish a money laundering case.
Bayern are also going through a troubled period internally, while the Oliver Kahn-Hasan Salihamidžić duo are under fire from critics following the UEFA Champions League elimination against Manchester City.
On Saturday April 29th , the German newspaper Bild revealed that the headquarters of the club, as well as the Allianz Arena were searched last Tuesday by investigators from the Federal Criminal Police Office, in cooperation with the Criminal Police Office of the Bavarian State.
