Bayern Munich to play against East Bengal for street children

Rummennigge in the letter to TLFI founder R P Banerjee said, "During my visit two years ago I experienced the way those kids are living, something people in my country cannot really imagine."

For erstwhile German greats like Gerd Mueller, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Lothar Matthaeus, Giovane Elber, who are expected to be a part of the Bayern squad, this would be the first match on Indian soil.

Both Mueller and Rummenigge, however, have visited India accompanying the Bayern juniors` squad and for the academy in Burdwan, about a year and a half ago.

East Bengal`s president Pranob Dasgupta, secretary Kalyan Majumder along with coach Trevor James Morgan and former international Surojit Sengupta promised the TLFI to share their best for benefit of street children.
