The issue has come to the fore in the build-up to Tuesday's Champions League clash with Celtic in Glasgow, with Lewandowski unable to travel with the team due to a muscle injury.

Rummenigge insists Lewandowski will only miss the game out of precaution, though, and denied Bayern needed more options in the squad.

"It is only a precaution," he told the media prior to leaving Munich. "If we had been playing against Real Madrid, he would have probably travelled with us.

"I don't think we have any problematic areas. 

"It certainly isn't nice that we have several attacking players injured at the moment. But our coach is known for the fact that he does not complain. He will find ways to work around it."
