Ivica Olic told Sport Bild
—» Noooo, Ivi! Don’t leave us please. :((
The Croatian has found first-team chances few and far between this season, which has alerted Wolfsburg, who have admired the 32-year-old for several years.
Olic has had a frustrating string of injuries, but insists that he is now fully-fit, and that only Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes knows why he is out of the team.
“I am in top shape. The coach cannot say that I did not establish myself because I was lacking something.”
Olic has featured in 13 games for Bayern Munich this season, most of them coming from the substitute bench.
Ivi, his sons always a priority.
So Basti is Bayern adviser now? Lol~
I cried while watching these videos. Bayern has become apart of me for 10 years. I’ve never loved any other team as much as I love Bayern. Win, draw or lose, Bayern are perfect just the way they are. I’ll support them forever and ever and ever.
(Gif Part 1)
Arjen Robben, Mario Gomez, Ivica Olic and Daniel van Buyten are all expected to stay at Bayern Munich.
Olic and Van Buyten are both out of contract in the summer, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge expects them to remain with the club.
Star men Gomez and Robben, meanwhile, appear tempted to extend their contracts prematurely.
“I believe that Olic and Van Buyten will stay,” Rummenigge toldKicker magazine.
“Both of them have shown an interest in staying and they have shown good character, too.”
Olic did not seem so keen to stay just a few months ago when a lack of first-team opportunities prompted him to request a move in the winter.
A transfer was blocked and he has since started playing more frequently under Jupp Heynckes, proving he can be a reliable back-up for Gomez, who Rummenigge also hopes will extend his stay with the club beyond 2013.
“I am cautiously optimistic that Mario will play for Bayern Munich for a long time to come,” added Rummenigge.
And despite starting the last three games on the bench, Rummenigge believes Robben is also happy to stay with the Bavarian club.
“We are patient and we will find a solution,” said Rummenigge, who knows now may not be the ideal time to enter into negotiations with the Dutchman.
