Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness believes Willy Sagnol´s announcement that he wants to leave the club was born out of frustration and expects the French defender to remain with the German giants.

Sagnol, after sitting on the bench for 90 minutes against Wolfsburg on Saturday, said he wanted to leave during the winter transfer period.

He has yet to make an appearance for the first team since injuring his knee in April with coach Ottmar Hitzfeld forcing him instead to play two games for the reserves to build up his fitness levels.
