REVEALED: James mocked Kovac in front of Bayern Munich teammates

Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez has reportedly mocked coach Niko Kovac to teammates.

BILD reports the Colombia midfielder, on loan from Real Madrid, launched a stinging attack on his new coach in the dressing room.

"We're not at Frankfurt here," he exclaimed.

This came after the former Porto playmaker didn't play any part in the 1-1 draw with Augsburg before being left on the bench for the Champions League draw at home to a resurgent Ajax.

Kovac arrived in Bavaria in the summer after seeing his reputation rise following a stellar campaign with Frankfurt in which he won the German Cup and was in line to qualify for the Champions League until they fell away near the climax of the season.
