Former Bayern Munich and Switzerland manager, Ottmar Hitzfeld has warned the Bundesliga champions not to lose their German identity.
The Bavarians have acquired the services of a number of Spanish-speaking players since the arrival of Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena, with Arturo Vidal set to join the likes of Xabi Alonso, Thiago Alcantara, Juan Bernat and Javi Martinez.
“Bayern should be wary and make sure German remains the No.1 language in the team – and not Spanish,” Hitzfeld told Kicker.
“This appears to be a new trend at Bayern. FCB previously always had the goal of signing the best German players.
“Mario Gotze is the perfect example of a German player who was made for Bayern. This fantastic player should challenge himself and convince Guardiola that he should be an undisputed starter.”
