Ivica Olic: Wants to start more games for Bayern Munich

Croatian striker Ivica Olic wants to leave Bayern Munich in search of more regular football.

The 32-year-old has only made five substitute appearances this season since his return from a long injury break.

When asked if he would stay at the Allianz Arena, Olic told Munich's Tz newspaper: "No. I want to play more; I want to have fun for another two years.

"I am not the type of player who comes on towards the end of the game. That is not enough for me."

The Croat joined Bayern in 2009 from Hamburg and played a crucial role as they claimed the domestic double and reached the Champions League final the following year under then coach Louis van Gaal.


Olic, who is in the final year of his contract, only recently returned to action after missing two months with a partially torn hip tendon.

The injury occurred in only his second game back following a nine-month lay-off with knee cartilage problems.

Since then Olic has lost his place in the starting line-up to Bundesliga top scorer Mario Gomez and coach Jupp Heynckes has used him as a winger during his appearances from the bench this season.

Olic added: "I am a centre-forward. On the wing is not really my position. But the coach sees me as a winger."
