Toni refuses reserve call
01 Oct 2009 - 07:32:33
Striker Luca Toni's future at Bayern Munich has been thrown further into doubt after the Italian refused to play for the club's reserve team.
The 32-year-old believes that he is fit enough for first-team action, but coach Louis van Gaal is of the opinion that Toni has not fully recovered from an Achilles problem.
Ahead of the Champions League clash with Juventus, an angry Toni said: "He wants me to play in the reserves again, but I don't think I will do that again.
"I feel fit and I find it very unfortunate that I will not play against Juventus.
"I would have liked to have played against some of my friends from the Italian national team and to be shown on television back home."
