Former Bayern Munich star Lothar Matthaus has claimed that Thomas Muller’s time at the Allianz Arena could be all but up.
Matthaus believes that Carlo Ancelotti faces an uphill task in keeping the winger at the club as he doesn’t have space to play the German international.
Muller has scored just one goal in thirteen appearances this season and has been struggling for form.
Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti prefers a 4-2-3-1 formation and Thomas Muller has very limited space to break into the first team.
“It will be really tough for Muller to fight himself back into the starting XI in the second half of the season,” Matthaus wrote.
“There is not really a position in Ancelotti’s formation that suits him.”
“Arjen Robben is a better option on the right wing and Bayern do not really play with a support striker.”
“They are playing an attacking midfielder behind Robert Lewandowski instead and I think Thiago Alcantara is the right man for that role. He is much more flexible than Muller.”
