Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness (in pic) on Tuesday laughed off the ‘mole’ in the European champion’s camp, but stars Philipp Lahm and Arjen Robben were not so easily amused.

Bayern coach Pep Guardiola has threatened to throw out any player — or players — found to be leaking information to the press.

In contrast to Guardiola, Hoeness, who faces a high-profile court case in March for tax evasion, laughed off any questions about the mole. “The players are laughing themselves half to death over the headlines,” said Hoeness.The players themselves were far from amused. “No, I’m not smirking about this,” said Lahm Robben said he was “sad” about the latest divulgence of secrets, but it was “nothing new”. — AFP
