Thomas Muller said he does not feel valued by Carlo Ancelotti after the Bayern Munich coach left the forward out of the starting XI on Saturday.
“I don’t know exactly which qualities the coach wants to see,” Muller told ARD. “But mine seem not to be 100 percent in demand.”
Ancelotti said tactics were the only reason Thomas Muller did not start the game.
“We tried to plan the game using the wide areas more and to have more possession in the middle,” he said. “For this reason Thomas didn’t start the game.
“He went in during the second part of the game and did well. It was only a technical decision.”
Bayern’s new sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said that the club still considered Muller a talent, though he scored just five goals after Ancelotti took charge last season.
