When Bayern Munich won the European Cup three times in a row in the 70’s each was controversy. In particular the 1975 final still hurts many Leeds United fans. As a club who have never won Europe’s premier competition Leeds came so close to tasting success in ’75 only to be cheated out of it.
Peter Lorimer scored a perfectly good goal for Leeds early in the match. The referee initially saw nothing wrong with it, but after a quiet word in the ear from Franz Beckenbauer he was persuaded to consult his linesman who Beckenbauer also talked into disallowing the goal.
