Franz Beckenbauer undergoes open-heart surgery

By Daily Sports on September 6, 2016

Germany and Bayern Munich legend Franz Beckenbauer has had open-heart surgery and received at least one bypass, according to a report in Bild.

Beckenbauer’s management team has not responded to a request for comment on his health following a report Monday in the German newspaper.

Bild said the surgery took place on Saturday and had been planned for several weeks.

The 70-year-old Beckenbauer left for a clinic in southern Germany on Friday, one day after his home in Salzburg, Austria, had been searched by authorities acting on a request by Swiss prosecutors. Beckenbauer is among several people under a Swiss criminal probe into suspected corruption around the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

The Swiss criminal case, formally opened last November but confirmed only on Thursday, has caused turmoil at the soccer federation of world champion Germany and tarnished the reputation of a World Cup that was a popular success. In Germany, the 2006 tournament has become known as its “Summer Fairytale.”
