  • Description

    THE POSSIBILITY OF A TRANSFER TO CANADA FOR GERMAN WORLD CUP STAR FRANZ BECKENBAUER WAS BEING DEBATED IN THE SOCCER WORLD TODAY (TUESDAY) AFTER A BONN REPORT THAT THE PLAYER HAD TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM THE TORONTO FALCONS.

    THE REPORT SAID THAT BECKENBAUER HAD TURNED DOWN A GBP50,000 STERLING OFFER TO PLAY FOR THE CLUB, WHICH IS A MEMBER OF THE OUTLAWED US NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE.

    BUT YESTERDAY (MONDAY) JOE PETERS, PRESIDENT OF TORONTO FALCONS, SAID NO OFFER HAD BEEN MADE FOR BECKENBAUER.

    PETERS SAID THAT THE GERMAN PLAYER HAD "INDICATED INTEREST" IN COMING OUT TO LOOK AT CANADA IN JUNE, AND IN PLAYING IN CANADA ONCE HIS CONTRACT WITH BAYERN MUNICH WAS ENDED. BUT HE ADDED THAT THERE WAS NO QUESTION OF SIGNING HIM THIS YEAR.

    ACCORDING TO THE LONDON "DAILY MAIL", PETERS ALSO SAID THAT THERE HAD BEEN DIRECT NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN HIMSELF AND BECKENBAUER. HE ADDED THAT ALTHOUGH BAYERN MUNICH MIGHT HAVE DENIED ANY KNOWLEDGE OF AN OFFER THERE WAS NO REASON WHY THE CLUB SHOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT IT. HE WAS REPORTED AS SAYING: "WE ARE NOT MEMBERS OF FIFA SO I AM UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO DEAL WITH THE CLUB."
