With the win, Bayern provisionally leads the Bundesliga table with six points, while Werder Bremen is at the bottom with none.

The Germany worldwide has been with Bayern for his whole career and was a mainstay in the side until Carlo Ancelotti took charge at the Allianz Arena.

On Saturday he came on as a 73rd-minute substitute, replacing Franck Ribery after Thiago Alcantara had taken over his starting spot for the game.

"Well, I don't really know what the qualities are that the coach [Carlo Ancelotti] wants to see".

"But mine seem not to be 100 percent in demand".

Muller did play a part in Robert Lewandowski's second goal of the afternoon, setting up the Polish forward to make it 2-0 in the 75th minute.

Bayern's new sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic attempted to reassure Muller following his comments.

Muller suffered a dip in form last season in Ancelotti's first campaign in charge, scoring only five Bundesliga goals after hitting the net 20 times in the league in the previous term under Pep Guardiola.

"We tried to plan the game using the wide areas more and to have more possession in the middle", he said.
