Karl-Heinz Rummenigge blasts Bayern display after 3-2 Olympiakos win
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has slammed their performance, following a 3-2 Champions League Group B win at Olympiakos yesterday morning (Singapore time).
"I don't think the performance we produced will bring us success if we don't get a handle on things," he bluntly told the squad.
Goals from Robert Lewandowski (brace) and Corentin Tolisso secured the win which came at a price.
Lucas Hernandez damaged ankle ligaments and is expected to be out "for weeks", with fellow centre-back Niklas Suele already sidelined for at least six months after tearing knee ligaments on Saturday. - AFP
