PSG need to sack their Sporting Director - Bayern Munich President

Bayern Munich's president Uli Hoeness has called on  Paris Saint Germain to sack their sporting director for the way he approaches the club about Jerome Boateng.

Antero Henrique made an approach for Boateng during the transfer window but actually withdraw when Bayern named their price for the player.

However, Bayern president believe business is not done that way and that the sporting director is not a great advert for the club.

In an interview with German outlet Kicker, Uli Hoeness spoke about the situation:

'I would advise PSG to replace their sporting director. The man is not a great advert for the club,' he said

'PSG cannot afford to have such a sporting director if they want to be one of the best clubs in the world.'

'We asked for this fee because we did not want to hand over Jerome and assumed that Paris would not pay that amount.'

'We also wanted to do our coach a favour because he wanted to keep the player.'

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic also agree with the club president and added his own view of the situation.

'I do not want to insult anybody. But I will tell you: You can't do things like that to Bayern Munich. Especially when it is about the kind of player,' Hasan said

'If a transfer shall happen, many things must fit. We must want it, the player must want it and the other club should show interest in that player. And we never felt that in any moment.'

'Even Jerome confirmed to me, that the tactics of the other side were strange.'

The move eventually didn't materialised and Boateng remain a Bayern player.
