The Bavarians are desperate to add talent to their team to avoid losing the title, but their efforts have not been appreciated by some of their former players.

Apparently, Bayern's attempts to hire new footballers to boost their chances in the Bundesliga title race have not been appreciated by some of their historic figures.

The team has been involved in some winter transfers, including Eric Dier's loan move last week. Additionally, the club is pursuing a permanent deal for Kieran Trippier, who would help them in their struggles to boost the right flank.

Nonetheless, neither of these players were satisfying enough for the legendary Lothar Matthäus, who blasted the team's front office for their options to help the team.

In a recent discussion, the second man in history to play in five different World Cups for Germany did not hold back when asked his thoughts on Bayern's new player and their potential target.

"Bayern need more depth and reinforcements, but are these players reinforcements? Eric Dier wasn't necessarily a key player at Tottenham recently. I remember Uli Hoeness once saying, 'We won't be bringing in any more players who are sitting on the bench at other clubs'. Kieran Trippier would be a similar case. That's not Bayern Munich for me. Bayern should focus on reinforcements or on the young players," Matthäus said.

Then, the former midfielder aimed a dig at sporting director Christoph Freund, who did not have a plan in place to help the club add depth to their squad following certain exits last summer.

In the summer it was said, 'We can let Pavard and Stanisic go and get someone else instead', and then they didn't get anyone else. As a result, they've got problems at right-back and in the centre. They thought, 'We'll manage that'. No, they reacted too late. The team can't find itself," Matthäus added.

While Trippier's arrival is still on hold, Dier is now part of Bayern's team until the end of the season. Judging by these words by Matthäus, it seems pretty clear that both men will be subject to immense pressure, but only time will tell if they can prove the German icon wrong.
