FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The European Central Bank delivered excessive stimulus on Thursday as economic conditions had not deteriorated enough to necessitate such a large package, Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann told German newspaper Bild on Friday.

Weidmann, one of the most vocal critics of the ECB's easy monetary policy, said it was clear that rates will stay low for a very long time and his goal is to avoid any undue delay in rate hikes.
