Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has admitted he was not impressed with Manchester City's attackers during their Champions League match. 

Muller scored one of Bayern's goals as they demolished Manchester City 3-1 last week.

Pundits and fans were disappointed by City's apparent lack of desire and enthusiasm in a game that came only ten days after Manuel Pellegrini's men had destroyed fierce rivals Manchester United in the same stadium.

Quoted in the Manchester Evening News, the player said,

"Manchester had two attackers who - and I exaggerate a bit - sat in their deck-chairs on the halfway line when we were in possession."

Indeed, Pellegrini's side were heavily criticised for not showing any attacking intent. It was only when Alvaro Negredo replaced Edin Dzeko that City were able to force Bayern to defend.

With Negredo City's only scorer.

Muller was also happy to admit that no player would have been allowed to do what City's players did against Bayern.

"No attacker is allowed to do that at Bayern or the Germany team."

After winning last season's Champions League, Pep Guardiola's new side are now regarded as the best teams in Europe.

Guardiola will no doubt be relishing the potential opportunity to face his old side Barcelona in the Champions League in the coming seasons.
