Bayern Munich accused the media of "disrespect" and of breaking the German constitution with recent criticism in an extraordinary news conference.

The Chairman of the Board of "Bavaria" Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the club President Uli Hennes and sports Director Hasan salihamidžić gathered today a joint press conference.

The Bundesliga champions, who return to action at Wolfsburg on Saturday, have dropped to sixth in the table after taking only one point from their last three matches.

"Polemic seems to know no boundaries anymore, " he added.

He has also been a key player for Unai Emery's Gunners so far this season, scoring twice in just 512 minutes of Premier League football.

However, the Bayern chief has clarified his statements on the Arsenal midfielder, stating that he made the comments to take the discussion away from the racist issues surrounding the player's retirement.

The Poland striker opened his account on the half hour and doubled it four minutes after the re-start to give embattled Bayern a much-needed boost, a day after club bosses launched a scathing attack on the media while backing coach Niko Kovac and his players despite their dip in form.

But having taken last season's title by 21 points, Bayern are now on a four-match winless streak, including a 3-0 home defeat by Borussia Monchengladbach just before the worldwide break.

Speaking at a media conference on Friday, Hoeness revealed: "When we played in Seville, he was exclusively responsible for nearly eliminating us. But we at Bayern Munich will no longer accept it this way".

Hoeness himself previously accused former Germany global Mesut Ozil of "playing like dirt for years" and Bayer Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi of being "insane" for a challenge he made on Bayern defender Rafinha.
