Inside the business of the Bundesliga

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - December 10, 2015 - 1:01:29

The Champions League field is down to the last 16 after the group stage ended this week, but Manchester United is not in the mix. What's plaguing the Red Devils, and how, after spending all that money in the summer, did Manchester United fail to get out of its group? SI.com's Ben Lyttleton (twitter.com/benlyt) joins this week's podcast to break down Louis van Gaal's side in addition to the slew of teams who did advance and will be part of Monday's draw. This week we also have a pair of unique and special interviews. U.S. women's national team icon Abby Wambach will have her playing career end next week in New Orleans, and she talked with SI's Grant Wahl (twitter.com/grantwahl) about the end of her storied run and what might be on the horizon for her. We'll give you a taste of the conversation, to come in full next week. Wahl is also joined by Bundesliga CEO Christian Seifert, who is attempting to make inroads globally with one of the world's premier leagues. == The Planet Futbol Podcast is brought you by the SeatGeek app, available in app stores and at seatgeek.com.
