Sammer: Mandzukic reaction
Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer praises Mario Mandzukic's "superb" response to recent criticism of his work rate.

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has praised Mario Mandzukic's "superb" response to recent criticism of his work rate.

The striker was dropped for the 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach last week by Bayern manager Pep Guardiola, who felt that the 27-year-old had not done enough on the training pitch.

Mandzukic scored on his return to the squad as the Bavarian giants thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0.

After the win, Sammer told reporters: "Mandzukic's response on the pitch has been superb. Mario put in a great performance."

Mandzukic has scored 11 goals in 18 Bundesliga appearances this season.
