Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld has dropped Willy Sagnol for Thursday´s UEFA Cup semi-final second leg against Zenit St Petersburg after the full-back criticised his tactics.

The France international claimed on Sunday he was suffering from a confidence crisis because Hitzfeld keeps playing him out of position. Hitzfeld, who recently dropped Martin Demichelis when he refused to play in midfield, has taken a hard line again by leaving Sagnol out of the squad travelling to Russia.

"Sagnol will be a spectator for a bit," Hitzfeld told club´s television station.
