Bayern Munich manager, Niko Kovac has apologised to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola over his remarks on German youngster, Leroy Sané.
Concise News learnt that Bavarian boss publicly stated the German champion was confident of buying Manchester City star.
The Bundesliga champions have made no secret of their desire to bring the 23-year-old to the Allianz Arena after he appeared to fall out of favour at the Etihad Stadium towards the end of last season.
Although City’s reported £90million asking price is said to have initially put Bayern off, Kovac recently suggested an agreement could soon be reached, saying: “I am very confident. I assume we can get it [done].”
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, however, revealed his frustration at Kovac’s comments ahead of the Bavarian giants’ thumping 6-1 Audi Cup win over Fenerbahçe on Tuesday.
“I did not like what he said.” The message has clearly got through to Kovac, who revealed after the game at the Allianz Arena that he has spoken to Guardiola and apologised for speaking publicly about his player.
“We [Bayern and him] talked about it. Maybe I was too offensive in that interview. I talked to Pep and apologised because of it. I would like to apologise to the club, too. I will restrain myself in cases like this in the future,” Rummenigge said.
