Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has ordered sulky stopper Oliver Kahn to live up to his responsibilities and stop polluting the atmosphere at the club.

The Munich skipper has cut a downbeat figure throughout a poor campaign, slamming his team-mates in the media and requesting leave from the squad on the eve of a game following revelations about his private life in the press.

Now, with the club facing a shake-up having failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 10 years, Rummenigge told Sport Bild: "I have told Oliver that he cannot come into the dressing room every morning in such a bad mood. That spreads a bad atmosphere. He has got to be more aware of his responsibilities as captain."
