Sammer slams Bayern

Bayern Munich's 2-0 win over Hannover may have taken the defending champions up to second in the Bundesliga, but it was anything but to the liking of their director of sport Matthias Sammer.

The Bavarians needed 45 minutes to get warmed up against the Reds and Sammer slammed the team's apparent lack of hunger and desire.

We are playing lethargically at times, playing football without any emotion and just going through the motions.

When you are struggling in the first half, then you've got to help each other out in the tackles and bring a bit more emotion into play.

Instead, we are too relaxed and just watch - we've won five titles in the last 15 months, Franck Ribery's been named Best Player in Europe and he'll probably also win the Ballon d'Or.

It's not that we are not working, just we're not showing any emotions at all.

– Bayern Munich's director of sport, Matthias Sammer
