Hoeness rules out any more moves for Bayern

September 1, 2008

MUNICH, September 1 (Bundesliga) - Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness says his club will not be making any more transfers before the end of the deadline.

The Bavarians have been linked with wantaway Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov and Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Anatoli Timoschuk, but Hoeness says he is happy with the squad coach Jurgen Klinsmann already has at his disposal.

'We are not going to dip into our funds anymore,' he revealed to Premiere television.

'We will keep hold of our money and see how the team develops between now and the winter.' Sunday's 4-1 win over Hertha Berlin, Bayern's first win in the Bundesliga this season, may well have been enough to convince the Bavarians to put the cheque book back in the drawer until January.

Goals from Luca Toni, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm and Miroslav Klose earned the defending champions a comfortable win at the Allianz Arena on Sunday with Klinsmann allowed to smile for the first time since taking over in the summer.

'Everything went right for us and we could even have won by a greater margin,' he said.

'The team did everything we asked of them from the beginning. We forced the goals and they did us good.

'We are slowly getting into gear.'

According to club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the return of Italy international Toni made the difference.

The 31-year-old had missed almost all of the pre-season due to a calf injury and he looked out of shape last weekend when Bayern only managed a 1-1 draw at Borussia Dortmund.

But, fresh from his recall to the Italy squad on Saturday, Toni was back in form on Sunday.

'It is important to have Luca back because we have more quality in attack with him,' Rummenigge said.
