BONN, Germany (Reuters) - A takeover of Kabel Deutschland by peer Liberty Global would be more complicated from an anti-trust point of view than an acquisition by Vodafone , Germany's cartel office said on Wednesday.

Vodafone on Monday agreed to buy Germany's largest cable operator Kabel Deutschland for 7.7 billion euros ($10.1 billion), beating Liberty Global, which could still return with a higher bid.

Liberty Global owns Germany's second-largest cable operator Unity Media KabelBW. ($1 = 0.7649 euros)
