Captain Philipp Lahm has said there is no room for egos in Bayern Munich’s squad as they bid to go 13 points clear in the Bundesliga at Stuttgart on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola’s Bayern take on strugglers VfB Stuttgart in a re-arranged league fixture looking to extend their record unbeaten run to 43.
Guardiola clamped down on any complacency by dropping top-scorer Mario Mandzukic for Friday’s 2-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach for poor performances in training.
“We have an enormous squad and when everyone is fit, there will be more hard-luck cases for those not involved,” said Lahm. “I don’t judge the other players. The coach chooses the team, we have to accept that and stand behind his decision.”
Stuttgart captain Christian Gentner sees it as “probably our easiest match”, so low are the expectations on the hosts.AFP
