Since wrapping up the Bundesliga title, Bayern have lost their Champions League semi-final first leg 3-0 to Barcelona, gone out of the DFB-Pokal on penalties to Borussia Dortmund and lost league games to Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg.

And Matthaus told Sky Deutschland:

Guardiola has already said that their season is over and he's been rotating his team so much that he's unsettling the team.

His team no longer has the stability they had for over eight months, enchanting football fans up and down Germany.

It seems the players are losing a bit of belief in the coach, and he hadn't expected that.

Bayern's Lewandowski suffers horrific injury

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has suffered an horrific injury after colliding with Dortmund goalkeeper Mitch Langerak - breaking his upper jaw and nose as well as a concussion.

Lewandowski, however, has taken to Twitter to reveal his hope that he will be fit for the upcoming Champions League clash with Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund ended Bayern Munich's dreams of a treble by beating Pep Guardiola's men in the semi-final of the DFB-Pokal in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

Lewandowski had put Bayern in front and they appeared to be cruising until Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled in the 75th minute.

Arjen Robben came and went with an injury ending his brief involvement in the game and he's since been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Dortmund ended the game with 10 men after Kevin Kampl was sent off in extra-time.

The real drama was to unfold in the penalty shoot-out, though, with Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso both slipping and Mario Gotze's penalty saved before Manuel Neuer sent his spot-kick against the crossbar with Dortmund netting only two of their three penalties to go through.

Uefa charge Guardiola for supporting dead journalist

Guardiola wore the T-shirt stating "Justica para Topo" at a press conference before the second leg of the Champions League match against Porto.

It relates to a campaign, backed also by Lionel Messi, calling for an investigation into the death of journalist Topo Lopez in a car accident at the World Cup.

His car was reportedly smashed into by a vehicle driven by two suspected criminals, being pursued by the police.

Uefa's regulations prohibit the use of "sporting events for manifestations of a non-sporting nature" and the governing body has charged Guardiola with an "incident of non-sporting nature".

Porto boss Julian Lopetegui has also been charged following his dismissal from the bench during the 6-1 win by Bayern.

The cases will be dealt with by Uefa's disciplinary body on 21 May.
