Bayern, whose president Uli Hoeness and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Friday accused the media of unfair and "shameful" reporting of their team's current form, are now in second place on 16 points, four behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

- Bayern have won four consecutive Bundesliga matches at Wolfsburg for the first time.

"Today is an important day as we inform you that we will no longer tolerate this derogatory and derisive reporting".

"Polemic seems to know no boundaries anymore, " he added. "This is true for media, pundits and most of all for pundits who once played football here".

Partnered with Javi Martinez in midfield, Spain worldwide Thiago injected Bayern with a sense of calm in possession, while his clever decision to leave Hummels' pass in the first half set Lewandowski free for the essential opener.

The Bayern chief claimed Ozil's performances for Arsenal were also below par and even aimed a dig at his personal life.

The Bayern officials complained against "outrageous" criticism of club stalwarts Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels following Germany's 3-0 loss to the Netherlands last week. Thon, a skillful midfielder who played for Bayern from 1988-94 stood by his criticism.

"We will no longer accept this recent kind of media coverage", Rummenigge explained in the press conference.

"It's about time the biggest club in Germany take a clear stance on this issue", he declared.

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.

Back in July, Hoeness said that "Ozil has being playing sh*t for years." when asked about the player's retirement after the World Cup.

Bayern were coasting until the experienced Robben drew a second booking that offered Wolfsburg a way back into the contest their play had never previously looked like meriting.
