Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hit out at head coach Louis van Gaal over his man-management at the struggling Bundesliga champions.
Bayern are currently seventh in the league and ten points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, despite two wins and a draw in their last three games.
Last Friday Bayern saw off Freiburg 4-2, with previously out-of-favour trio Martin Demichelis, Mario Gomez and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk all on the scoresheet.
Hoeness told Sky90: "It's very difficult to have a conversation with Louis van Gaal. He can't accept it when someone has a different opinion to him.
"I'm watching the game from the stands and I see three players scoring who should have left the club long ago according to Louis.
"These players are still very useful though. Take Tymoshchuk for example; he was the best player on the pitch after the break.
"There are four or five players around who have been deemed surplus to requirements, but still add something to the team.
"We need to keep all our players satisfied if we are to be successful. Louis deals with some very experienced players at Bayern and he should be a bit more cautious."
