Fiorentina and Germany striker, Mario Gomez has hit out at his old club, Bayern Munich, saying that only Franck Ribery can be considered 'untouchable'.

Gomez left Bayern this summer after seeing reduced playing time and slipping down the pecking order but has spoken out against his former club saying that he feels everyone else is replaceable.

"Bayern do not depend on any individual players. Their game only slightly changes when Franck Ribery isn't there," Gomez told German publication 11Freunde.

"All the others can be replaced without too much trouble."

Gomez, who won a Champions League medal with the club is currently injured for 4-6 weeks with a knee injury but has adjusted well to the Serie A thus far, scoring two goals in two games for La Viola.

When asked to explain why he moved, Gomez criticised the club's rotation policy, saying: "The rotation system at Bayern makes it nearly impossible to play week after week, even when you're putting in some top performances.

"I asked myself whether I would be happy with limited playing time and I decided that wasn't good enough for me."
