UNCOVERED: Kovac's furious final team-talk before Bayern Munich sack

Niko Kovac final team talk before being sacked by Bayern Munich has been made public.

Bayern were hammered 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday - with Kovac axed less than 24 hours later.

BILD reports he gave the squad both barrels for the abject display that ended up costing him his job, saying to Serge Gnabry: "You lose the ball too easily!"

To Thiago Alcantara, he accused him of play-acting: "You shouldn't pretend so much".

Kovac then turned his attention to Jerome Boateng who had been sent off earlier in the game.

"You have to be much more clever in the situation," he told the central defender.

Kovac also told Kingsley Coman to compare himself to Thomas Muller who was working harder, "Kingsley, you stand there while Thomas is fighting".

He went on to angrily confront the group, saying: "You don't listen! We talk and train these plays, but then you don't do them during the game."
