Boris Becker gives his first big exclusive interview in the NZZ after the bankruptcy report. He comments on the dispute with the bank in the UK and the legal proceedings against Hans-Dieter Cleven in Zug. Becker points out that he is particularly at odds with the bank over the level of interest rates; the bank wants 25 percent, which would be usury in Switzerland. Becker also denies Clever’s demand. He explains impressively how dependent he was on the former Metro manager, who for years received a large part of his profits and thus profited massively from him. As a reaction to the interview, BILD writes: ‘A reckoning and at the same time a declaration of war by a world star’. A PR coup for Becker and worldwide attention for the NZZ.
