Niko Kovac has no support from his players and is about to lose the dressing room of FC Bayern Munich, so club legend Lothar Matthaus.
The Bundesliga giants have experienced a very turbulent start to the campaign. They won their first four before a barren period in which they could not win four of their next six.
With the league leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, the pressure on Kovac and Matthaus believes that time could run out.
Niko Kovac is under attack after a difficult first four months in the Allianz Arena in Bavaria
"I do not see anybody taking responsibility there," he told Sky in Germany. "Kovac could not build a hierarchy at the beginning of the season, and the whole thing is not right.
"Niko has to make sure that he gets this team over again. They are other players than the ones he trained before. "
On Saturday, the situation came to a head when Thomas Müller fell off the page. A decision that outraged some parts of the support – not least from Muller's wife Lisa.
She criticized the manager on Instagram before quickly clearing the post and apologizing to Kovac.
"This statement by Lisa Müller – that sums up the mood," Matthäus continued.
"These are the conversations that take place at home, that not all players are behind Niko Kovac, where there is dissatisfaction."
Despite relatively weak four months for Kovac Bayern can qualify already on Wednesday for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
If Bayern defeated AEK Athens at home and lost Benfica to Ajax, they have already secured a place among the last 16.
