Bayern Munich: 'We will not accept this coverage' says Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Bayern Munich Chief clarifies statements on Mesut Ozil

"We have decided we will no longer accept this style of journalism".

"I have no words for what I have read about Manuel Neuer". "I did not love that he left Germany's national team because a small piece of motivation disappears when you know that you do not have to be ready for a World Cup or a European Championship". "Same goes for Jérôme Boateng and Mats Hummels".

"It is an important day today".

Bayern, pre-season favourites for a seventh straight league title, have lost two of their last three Bundesliga games to drop to sixth place on 13 points, four behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

"We met on Monday after Germany's worldwide match against the Netherlands and have decided we will no longer accept this style of journalism", said Rummenigge. "This applies to the media, it applies also to experts, and it applies above all to experts who once played football for this club". "What happens here is disrespectful and outrageous".

Hoeness, the man who said Germany would be better off without "poor excuse of a footballer " Mesut Ozil after the World Cup, made it clear that he felt the criticism of individual players had been unfair.

Malaysian opposition leader arrested for corruption
Charging Mr Zahid would also raise fears among other party leaders that they could be next, he said. The MACC confirmed that Dr Ahmad Zahid was arrested at 3.15pm.

One reporter later pointed out the irony in Hoeness' stance given his comments on Ozil. The approach of the press is a joke! After piling on to the anti-media agenda, describing himself as "horrified" by the coverage, the Bosnian took aim at former Bayern and Germany player turned TV pundit Stefan Effenberg, who had suggested Kovac's job was on the line.

"I should not have said mentally ill, for instance".

"I was accused of not supporting Niko".

With Bayern enduring a hard start to life under Niko Kovač this season, their decision to call a press conference at relatively short notice had fuelled speculation that Wenger - who had made it known that he was ready to return to management - may be about to replace the Croat.

"Not everything is as grim as it is presented and I also said after our good start this season that not everything was rosy", Kovac, in his first season at Bayern, said.
