Hitzfeld to take hard line

Next Story
Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld plans to drop his rotation scheme and only pick players on merit between now and the end of the season after his side lost twice in five days.

A 2-1 defeat at home to Anderlecht in the UEFA Cup was followed by a 2-0 reverse at lowly Energie Cottbus in the Bundesliga.

"Some players thought it would be a stroll to the German championship," he said. "I am not going to make any more rotations, I will be picking my team solely based on performance."
