Kaiser tips minnow as big threat

BAYERN Munich needs better players in some positions to reach the top level of the European football, according to club president Franz Beckenbauer.

In an interview with an Internet portal on Tuesday, Beckenbauer also singled out newcomer Hoffenheim as Bayern's top rival for the Bundesliga title.

"There are some positions where we need to improve," Beckenbauer told, the Internet portal of the German telecom company.

"The right side for example is lagging behind the left side. We have to do something there," Beckenbauer said, but did not single out any players.

Speaking about the Bundesliga, Beckenbauer said promoted Hoffenheim would be his club's closest challenger, despite losing the league's top scorer Vedad Ibisevic to a knee injury. "Hoffenheim is strong enough to overcome Ibisevic's absence," he said.

Halfway into the season, Hoffenheim leads on goal difference from Bayern, the defending champion.
