Bayern Munich were branded "vain superstars" by one of their own players on the eve of their second-leg Uefa Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, writes Alan Nixon.

Bayern's Austrian midfielder, Andy Herzog, who is currently seeking a transfer, said: "This team is a bunch of vain superstars. Nobody wants to do the dirty work during the games. If anybody dares to do different, it is looked on as a sign of weakness."

Herzog blames the Bayern coach, Otto Rehhagel, for failing to control the players. "He is too nice a man. Bayern need a dictator, not a trainer."

More upset for Bayern yesterday came when Lothar Matthaus was dropped from the Germany squad for the 27 March game against Denmark, raising doubts whether the former German captain will be called up for the European Championship this summer.
