According to a report from Sport Bild, Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer and vice-captain Thomas Müller were disappointed in how the club handled the feud between manager Hansi Flick and sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic, which has ultimately left Flick asking to be let out of his contract.

Twitter account @iMiaSanMia captured the report, which indicates that the veteran duo unhappy that the club the situation fester to a point that Flick wanted to leave as both players would have liked to continue to work with Flick moving forward. In addition, the team was in Flick’s corner as the club fumbled through mitigating the issues:

The only solace Müller and Neuer can take from the situation is that each player could conceivably continue to work with Flick, should the manager succeed Joachim Löw with the German national team.

Neuer, of course, captains the squad and still should be in the national player pool for two-to-three years, while Müller is expected to make his return this summer at the European Championships.
