Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness blasts German media for 'disrespectful reporting'

James Rodriguez Bayern Munich PS

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has admitted that he was wrong to call Mesut Ozil "sh*t", saying he should have instead labelled the playmaker "crap". We will protect our coach, players and club.

Bayern are now sat sixth in the Bundesliga table, four points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund.

The tension had been ratcheted up on Friday when Rummenigge, Hoeness and Salihamidzic slammed the press for "disgusting and respectless" reporting of Bayern's poor performances in recent weeks, singling out German journalists to scold.

"That felt like a liberation", said centre-back Mats Hummels, while sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was equally relieved, saying: "We have shown character in a hard phase".

"The work atmosphere is good, we work hard".

It ended the Poland striker's goalless run of five games for club and country.

With the win, Dortmund continue atop the Bundesliga standings with a four-point advantage whereas Stuttgart sit on the 17th place.

Patriots RB Michel out against Bears with gruesome knee injury
Regardless, the Patriots are extremely thin at running back and will need to make a trade this week if Michel is out long-term. White's long-awaited redemption story was not meant to be. "Just go out there and make a play if the ball comes your way".

"I'm responsible for the sport, that means for the football", Kovac said. "But in the end, we are a new team, there are a lot of new guys, a lot of young guys, a new coach, but we are very satisfied so far".

There were nervous looks in Bayern's ranks on 57 minutes when Robben was sent off for a second yellow card after fouling Elvis Rexhbecaj having already been booked for a first-half dive.

The Wolves then cut the deficit through Wout Weghorst six minutes later and launched an all-out offensive in search of the equaliser before James Rodriguez stunned the home crowed with a curling shot following a Lewandowski pass. "It is the first step and showed that FC Bayern can fight back".

"We had just as many chances in the last four games as we had in the first seven matches, the difference was that we didn't take them".

"We will be playing every three days, but the rhythm is good and I hope we'll go from win to win", said Lewandowski. We didn't want that and that's just not our standard.

Partnered with Javi Martinez in midfield, Spain worldwide Thiago injected Bayern with a sense of calm in possession, while his clever decision to leave Hummels' pass in the first half set Lewandowski free for the essential opener. He received the plaudits from the Bayern travelling army when taken off on 83 minutes for Sanches.
