Rummenigge: Bayern won't be active in January

The two-time European Footballer of the Year is adamant that there will be no changes during the winter transfer window as he is content with the status quo at the club

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says his club will not be active in the January transfer window as he believes the squad has enough depth to offset any potential injury problems.

Bayern have already struggled with injuries this season and are currently without Bastian Schweinsteiger, Claudio Pizarro, Xherdan Shaqiri and Holger Badstuber, whilst they have only recently welcomed back the return of Javi Martinez, Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze.

Despite the setbacks Pep Guardiola’s men top the Bundesliga, four points ahead of nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund and also have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League, which is enough evidence for Rummenigge to believe in keeping the status quo.

“We are a super team on the pitch, We can almost compensate for any injury, without causing problems,” Rummenigge told Kicker.

When probed about possible departures in January, the 58-year-old said: “No player wants to leave Bayern.”

The German club’s sporting director, Matthias Sammer, reiterated Rummenigge’s comments, suggesting that changes will only be made if completely necessary.

Sammer added: “We are currently not thinking about changing anything. Only if further injuries occur, then, one cannot rule out a change of course.”
