Lothar Matthaus has spoken out in strong terms against Borussia Dortmund star Mario Goetze’s move to Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich confirmed on Tuesday they had reached an agreement with the attacking midfielder after meeting his 37 million-euro buy-out clause.

He is now set to join the German champions on July 1.

Matthaus, who starred for Bayern in two spells between 1984 and 2000, and is Germany’s most-capped player, has made his negative feelings on the subject clear.

“The fans feel ridiculed,” he told Sky Sports, adding that the move was “untrustworthy” and “harmful to all of football.”

The former sweeper also argued that the timing of the announcement of the move, just days before Dortmund were due to play Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg, was “unfair” and “just amazing”.

Goetze is now set to become the most expensive German player ever, having won two Bundesliga titles and the DFB-Pokal with Dortmund.
