Heynckes: Gomez & Robben must accept bench role

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has stressed that players such as Arjen Robben and Mario Gomez will have to accept that they are no longer undisputed starters.

Both attackers have lost their berths after lengthy spell on the sidelines due to injury, and the 67-year-old has no intention to make changes to his starting XI any time soon.

"All of them could play, all of them are totally motivated in training. We don’t just have 11 first-teamers, we have 20 good players," he was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"I'm delighted with our strength in depth. It's obviously a shame that I can't play all the good players we have, but the players have to accept it. Victories are the priority.

"I won’t be making many changes at the moment. The team has to come together as a unit, and we have to keep winning. I refuse to take risks in the circumstances."

Bayern sit first in the Bundesliga table with 48 point from 19 games.
