Franz Beckenbauer admitted to alleged conversations with aliens from outer space. This was reported in Univision and other media. Beckenbauer made his statements in a You Tube video concerning aliens from outer space wanting to play a football match.
The opponents [according to the German astro] would be the Earth. The same report states that destruction would befall on the Earth if it loses.
I do not know what is inside Beckenbauer's mind but it makes for a great Halloween article. The reason is that this is pure comedy and sports combined since this is not for real.
