Rummenigge draws criticism

Borussia Dortmund's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has criticised Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge for repeatedly interfering with his own club's affairs.

Marco Reus: The subject of Rummenigge's comments

Rummenigge on Wednesday told Sport Bild magazine that Marco Reus is a "very good player" who "everybody knows will be available for 25 million euros" next summer.

Although Rummenigge also said he did not want to "strain" his club's relationship with Dortmund, Watzke has taken a dim view of his comments.

"Borussia Dortmund are rather annoyed that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is currently saying something about Dortmund issues at a rate of every three days," Watzke said on his club's website.

"We are sure that it is quite clear to anybody interested in football what his intentions are with such remarks.

"Karl-Heinz Rummenigge knows full well that his behaviour is only going to further damage the already tense relationship between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

"We, as employers, are naturally going to continue to stick to our principles in future and not reveal any details of our employees' contracts in public."

Bayern have previously upset Dortmund by activating a release clause in the contract of Mario Gotze a year ago and signing Robert Lewandowski from the Westphalians on a free transfer this summer.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
