Bayern Munich: 'We will not accept this coverage' says Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Bayern sold Juan Bernat because of his Champions League mistake says Uli Hoeness

"When we played in Seville he was exclusively responsible for us nearly being eliminated", he confirmed.

"I have no words for what I've read about Manuel Neuer, I would like to remind you that Manuel was world goalkeeper of the year four times", he intimated.

The 63-year-old then told reporters to expect "mail from our media lawyer" for any false or inaccurate reports.

The Bundesliga champions, who return to action at Wolfsburg on Saturday, have dropped to sixth in the table after taking only one point from their last three matches.

"It is an important day today".

"We met on Monday after Germany's worldwide match against the Netherlands and have decided we will no longer accept this style of journalism", Rummenigge said, as quoted by the BBC. Today, we will protect our players, our coach and the club.

Rummenigge has also been annoyed in recent weeks by the criticism of wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, who have also been called "too old".

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. Hoeness doubled down, saying he regrets his choice of word but not sentiment.

Some Bayern players were criticised for their performances during the global break, with pundits suggesting that older stars such as Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels had become part of Germany's current problems.

"I should not have said mentally ill, for instance". "I was accused of not standing behind Niko Kovac".

Do you think Kovac is the right man for Bayern?

As a result, much of the early speculation suggested that this press conference would confirm the departure of coach, Niko Kovac, with Arsene Wenger even lined up to replace him on an interim basis.

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.
