Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has questioned the attitude of James Rodriguez amid the club’s recent poor run of form.

The Bavarian side are without a win in their last four matches and slumped to a 3-0 loss at the Allianz Arena on Saturday against Borussia Monchengladbach. 

After only starting three games in the Bundesliga this season, there has been some speculation that Rodriguez is unhappy with life at the Allianz Arena in what is the second of his two-year loan switch from Real Madrid.

Matthaus made it clear he’s unimpressed with the Colombian’s attitude, per the Spanish press (h/t Football Espana):

“Bayern have too many players only interested in themselves. [James] is one of the players who place their individual importance above the club, then they complain when they are not playing enough. 

“It is egotistical and it is disrespectful in respect to his coach, his club and his team-mates, he cannot react angrily because [manager Nico] Kovac does not put his arm around him like [former boss Jupp] Heynckes did.”
