Striker leaves Bundesliga match at half-time!
BERLIN – Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni – linked with moves to West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Roma this summer – could face disciplinary action after driving home at half-time in their Bundesliga match against Schalke 04 on Saturday.
“This is not acceptable. We have registered this and will talk about it internally,” Louis Van Gaal told Sky Television at the end of the match.
“If this happened then that is not good. We have to talk about this.”
Bayern drew 1-1 at home to Schalke, dropping to eighth in the league after yet another lacklustre performance.

Veteran striker and part time sausage salesman Luca Toni is clearly not happy at being out of the first team picture at Bayern Munich and I can’t say I blame him. Here is a striker who scores pretty much at will, 57 goals in his first two seasons, but then finds himself not getting a regular spot even when the club is struggling?
To be fair, once you’ve been subbed why not allow your players go home, that way they beat the traffic and get home in time to catch Final Score.
