Bayern Munich defender, Jerome Boateng has disclosed that the manager of the club, Pep Guardiola has warned the players to be ready to earn a place in the squad or leave before the end of the transfer window.
Guardiola has come under immense pressure over his inability to lead the Bundesliga champions to glory in the Champions League.
He has warned the players that anyone unwilling to fight for their place should move on this summer.
“The coach has said it several times: should someone not accept the situation, he’s at the wrong club and can leave,”
Bayern defender Jerome Boateng said in kicker.
“It does not matter who it is.
“We work as a team and have many world-class players in the squad, but we all have to pull together.”
Bayern captain Philipp Lahm, who is set to rotate between midfield and right-back, said “not all players can be satisfied” with the situation but they must prove their worth on the field.
“The coach can only field 11 players,” Lahm said. “The coach has also said that all of us have to produce performances out on the pitch. Things can go one way or the other, where a superstar finds himself on the bench.”
