The Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez had a fit of anger in the locker room of Bayern, in the absence of coach Niko Kovac against whom they addressed their criticism after three games of the Bavarian club without winning and little participation of the South American player. "We are not in Frankfurt," says the "Bild" who shouted the Colombian, in reference to the previous team of Kovac, Eintracht Frankfurt.
James, according to the German media, is dissatisfied with his absence in most of the matches in the starting line-up and makes sure that in the locker room he said he wanted to leave and that he was going to tell the coach.
The discontent of James, according to the "Bild", it's just a symptom of what's happening in Bayern's locker room in the middle of the mini-crisis. The players have a number of reasons for dissatisfaction with Kovac. First his habit is criticized that he often speaks in Croatian, and not in German that he masters perfectly, with the second coach, his brother Robert Kovac, the goalkeeper coach, Toni Tapalovic, and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
On the other hand, the players miss a clear concept for the offensive game, to which they were accustomed in the times of Jupp Heynckes and Pep Guardiola. The analyzes of Kovac, according to the "Bild", almost always focus on defensive work.
Further, The extreme rotation at this height of the season has bewildered the players, many of whom after playing a good game are seen in the next commitment on the bench. Bayern come from a damn week, in which they lost the Bundesliga leadership against Borussia Dortmund, after drawing with Augsburg and losing to Hertha, and in the Champions League they did not go from a draw to a goal against Ajax Amsterdam
Finally, yesterday's training, of only 52 minutes, generated confusion and the players wonder why, after a good preseason, some intensity in the practices is not maintained. Bayern play tomorrow against Borussia Mönchengladach in a game that is bound to win to ease the crisis a little. Efe
