Wagner frustrated by lack of minutes

Sandro Wagner admits he is frustrated by the lack of playing time he has seen with Bayern Munich this season. The 30-year-old forward has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place since arriving at the Allianz Arena in January, but he has seen his playing time diminish even further since Niko Kovac took over as manager during the summer.
Indeed, Wagner made just his second start of the season as Bayern beat fourth-tier Rodinghausen in the DFB-Pokal on Tuesday and he marked that appearance by scoring the opening goal.
The former Hoffenheim star is clearly unhappy with his lack of game time and he indicated as much when speaking to reporters after the victory.
“Of course, it feels good for me [to score],” he said. “I played my first Bundesliga game more than 10 years ago. I have been quite successful over the last few years. It was fun to score.
“Now we’ve already got to November and it was only my second game where I started. It’s not what I am aiming for.”
Wagner further alluded his dissatisfaction by suggesting he was the wrong man to ask when discussing Bayern’s tactical approach.
“These are questions you have to talk about to players that play every game or the coach or the manager,” he added. “I don’t know. It is not my task to analyse this.”
