It sure seems like Bayern Munich and Manuel Neuer are headed for a divorce.

After Neuer’s explosive interview with The Athletic that dropped earlier on Friday, it seems like tensions are running high. Neuer hit on many topics, including the club’s unceremonious dumping of former goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic.

While not exactly inflammatory, it was enough to get the point across — and the Bayern Munich brass was not amused. CEO Oliver Kahn dropped a response that indicated as much.

”What Manuel said in parts of these two interviews in connection with Toni Tapalović’s release does not do justice to him as captain or to the values ​​of FC Bayern! In addition, his statements come at the wrong time because we have very important games ahead,” Kahn told the German Press Agency (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
