"Not all Bayern stars behind Kovac" – Lothar Matthaeus



Munich – Niko Kovac is in danger
to lose the dressing room Bayern Munich, according to Germany
legend Lothar Matthaeus, who believes the coach does not have
support of multiple stars.

Bayern can now knock out the stadiums
Champions League if they hit the ruling Greek side AEK at home
Wednesday and Benfica lose on Ajax in the second group E match.

However, Bavarian is not quite good
giants who only sit third in the Bundesliga after Saturday's 1-1 draw
home to Freiburg and is four points behind the current league leader
Dortmund.

After just four months of leadership, Kovac is under pressure and faces daily criticism from the German media.

"Bayern
currently does not have the relaxed attitude, the consensus,
aggressiveness or the joy of simply playing, "Matthaeus, a former
Germany captain who is now a television pundit, told Sky.

"I see no one taking responsibility there.

"Kovac failed to build a hierarchy at the beginning of the season and it's all right.

"Niko must see that he gets this behind him again.

"They are different players than those he has previously taught."

Matthaeus
says Saturday's episode when Thomas Mueller's wife criticized Kovac
Instagram to release his man from the start line, spoke
volumes.

Lisa Mueller quickly deleted her post, later apologized to Kovac.

"This statement by Lisa Mueller – summarizing the mood," said Matthaeus.

"These are the conversations that happen at home that not all players are behind Niko Kovac. There is a dissatisfaction there."

No player has spoken publicly against Kovac.

Than
despite winning the Bundesliga title for each of the last six seasons,
Bayern has clearly felt the press when the latest results have been
gone against them.

President Uli Hoeness and President Karl-Heinz
Rummenigge launched an extra large attack on the media two weeks ago
for "disrespectful, disgusting" reporting for a series of poor
results.

On the field, Hertha defeats Berlin and Borussia
Moenchengladbach has seen Bavaria takes only 20 points from the first 10
league games – their worst draw since the 2010/11 season, when Dortmund
won the title.

They can be seven points behind the current league leaders if they lose at Dortmund on Saturday's showdown.
