Despite comfortably leading in the Bundesliga – and on course for their third straight title – as well as competing in the last eight of the Champions League, and the semi-finals of the German Cup, the former Barcelona man is not happy with how his side is currently playing.
Bayern have just one win in ninety minutes in their last three games – having surprisingly lost at the Allianz Arena to Borussia Monchengladbach, narrowly overcoming Borussia Dortmund, and needing penalties to defeat Bayer Leverkusen most recently in the cup.
And according to the Daily Mail, Guardiola has attributed the less convincing spell to the absence of their two key men.
“Without Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, we are a different team.
“Of course we have big problems because we have no players for the one-on-one situations,” he explained.
His admission may prove disappointing to hear for Robert Lewandowski, who despite scoring fourteen goals in the league, has been considered something of a flop since his move from Jurgen Klopp’s team, even more so as it was the Polish striker that got the winner against his former club.
