Bayern looking for mole leaking 'secrets' to paper

MUNICH (AP) Bayern Munich is looking for a mole.

Bayern officials are enraged that someone, apparently a player, leaked coach Pep Guardiola's tactical instructions before Saturday's derby at Borussia Dortmund to a mass-circulation newspaper. Bayern won 3-0.

Guardiola has reportedly threatened that the culprit will "never again" play for Bayern.

Bayern spokesman Markus Hoerwick says, "when he is identified, there will be a huge problem, and he should know that."

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Sky TV that whoever leaked the information "should stop his activities immediately, otherwise he will have a serious problem, not only with Guardiola, but with the entire club."

Rummenigge then jokingly added that the club will not go as far as engaging the U.S. National Security Agency, which allegedly has been spying on European leaders and social media.
