FC Bayern – Lothar Matthäus criticizes alleged Hainer interference: “Not so clever”



"One drawer too low!"  Lothar Matthäus advises against signing Niclas Füllkrug

Record national player Lothar Matthäus has criticized Bayern Munich’s club boss Herbert Hainer for his alleged interference in the line-up.

“The fact that the Bayern President got involved and publicly believed that Thomas’s 1-0 (Müller, ed.) showed how indispensable he was was not that clever,” wrote the 62-year-old in his sky-Column.

Hainer described Müller as “indispensable” after the win against Schalke 04 (6-0). “The president shouldn’t talk publicly into the line-up for the coach. That’s not part of his job and it’s another case that has been opened unnecessarily. In general, of course, the head coach himself opened this construction site and now has to moderate it somehow week after week “, wrote Matthäus, who had recently clashed with Hainer several times.

Matthäus meanwhile found words of praise for Müller, who recently had often not been part of Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI. “Thomas clenches his fist in his pocket and now makes a good face about the bad game. That shows greatness, fairness towards colleagues and sportsmanship. That’s another reason why the fans love him. He will still be disappointed and angry that he played in some very important games played no role,” says Matthäus.
