The article is a nice read of course and all Germans enjoy hearing praise from abroad.
But while things look very promising for the national team, I don't believe we'll see any major changes on the club level. The UEFA Fairplay rules have plenty of loopholes. The EPL, Primera Division and Serie A will continue to have much more money to spend on their players. It's already been shown in plenty of articles where the math was done that the only two clubs that may really have do work some changes are Chelsea and Man City, but I don't really see any trouble for them either.
The second thing is that over the last year Mr. Hopp has demonstrated that the 50-1 rule in Germany, long touted as a model means of preventing football clubs from becoming a billionaire's plaything, holds absolutely no water. I liked the Hoffenheim approach in the beginnning, but over the last year Mr. Hopp has dictated transfers, fired managers and done whatever he pleases. He's shown that he is in complete and sole control of every decision made at this club.
