Bayern Munich Chief clarifies statements on Mesut Ozil

Robert Lewandowski Bayern Munich 06102018

It is indeed a noble intention to want more respect, objectivity and dignity in football coverage - that is something we can all agree on.

"I have no words for what I have read about Manuel Neuer". "Same goes for Jérôme Boateng and Mats Hummels".

Champions for the past six seasons, Bayern are sixth in the Bundesliga and without a win in four games.

"We will no longer accept this recent kind of media coverage", added Rummenigge, who also threatened possible legal action should criticism continue. "This applies to the media, it applies also to experts, and it applies above all to experts who once played football for this club".

"Today is an important day for Bayern Munich because we are telling you we will not put up with it anymore, " Rummenigge told a packed new conference.

"We met on Monday after Germany's global match against the Netherlands and have decided we'll no longer accept this style of journalism".

After echoing Rummenigge's comments, labelling several reports as "false facts" and stating that criticism of indiviudal players has been unfair, Hoeness singled out a reporter for a story which criticized the sale of backup left back Juan Bernat.

Roslyakov placed a bomb in the college cafeteria just as Harris and Dylan Klebold had done at Columbine nearly 20 years before. Some in Russian Federation suggested that the Kerch attack may have ties to Ukraine , though there is no evidence so far.

Later a reporter questioned whether Hoeness was on shaky ground with his point about criticizing individuals, given his earlier attack on Mesut Özil, who Hoeness said had been "playing s**t for years" and "last won a tackle before the 2014 World Cup". The approach of the press is a joke!

"Effenberg works for TV, I work for FC Bayern", Salihamidzic said.

"I was accused of not supporting Niko".

Bayern Munich have called an unexpected press conference for Friday morning amidst speculation over the future of manager Niko Kovac.

"On this very day, we decided that we will sell him because he almost cost us the Champions League and I would have loved to hear your statement on what bull-- he played".

Kovac's first season in charge at Bayern has got off to a concerning start, with the club now in sixth place in the Bundesliga, while they have gone four games without a win in all competitions.
