Muller admits Bayern Munich exit possible: I'm too ambitious for the bench

Thomas Muller has confirmed he will think about leaving Bayern Munich in January.

Bayern boss Niko Kovac stated recently that he sees the 30-year-old as a back-up player in his squad.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest in the World Cup winner, who says he's "too ambitious" to sit on the bench.

"When I heard about that statement of course I was surprised. But I'm not sensitive with such things. I already had a chat with the manager and for me everything's okay now," he told Kicker.

"Of course the new signings increased the competition in my best position but that's not the problem. That's not what it's all about. A manager has to make difficult decisions ahead of every game. But in the recent five games there has been a trend that doesn't make me happy.

"If the coaching staff see me as a sub in the future, I will have to think about my situation. I'm too ambitious to not do that."
