Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness Attacks His Players After Dusseldorf Draw

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness launched a scathing attack on his players on Saturday night after they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Bundesliga minnows Fortuna Duesseldorf.

Bayern Munich are in fifth place, nine points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund

“What happened today is not acceptable,” said Hoeness. “I need to recover from this shock, it’s going to be a difficult evening for my wife.”

“We will use the next few days to work out why we are playing such bad football, such uninspired football with so little self-confidence,” added Hoeness, who said that some players mistakes were slapstick”.

Hoeness said he had not written Bayern off in the title race, but it would be “presumptuous” to talk about winning the league after Saturday’s performance.

The 66-year-old said coach Niko Kovac was safe in his job until next Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Benfica, where Bayern can secure progress to the knockout stages with a win, but hinted that Kovac’s position was not secure.

“We are going to sleep on it. Niko Kovac will definitely be our coach against Benfica,” he said. “Then we need to do an analysis.”
