Sandro Wagner hinted at his discontent with life at Bayern Munich by saying that he needs to know more before answering a tactical question
The 30-year-old forward made his second start of the season for Bayern’s 2-1 DFB-Pokal win over Rodinghausen on Tuesday.
Wagner made sure not waste the rare opportunity handed to him by manager Niko Kovac by scoring the opening goal after just eight minutes.
Fellow forward Thomas Muller, who’s also struggled for regular minutes of late, then got the second goal of the night five minutes later from a penalty.
Speaking after the win, Wagner refused to discuss whether or not German fourth division side Rodinghausen found Bayern easy to play against because everyone knows their approach.
“These are questions you have to talk about to players that play every game or the coach or the manager,” said Wagner, according to Goal.
“I don’t know. It is not my task to analyse this.”
The German then hinted that he was clearly dissatisfied with his current role at Bayern.
“Of course, it feels good for me [to score]. I played my first Bundesliga game more than 10 years ago. I have been quite successful over the last few years. It was fun to score,” added Wagner.
“Now we’ve already got to November and it was only my second game where I started. It’s not what I am aiming for.”
Wagner has made just six appearances for Bayern this season with a total of 218 minutes of action.
