Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has said he would not sign players such as Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Borussia Dortmund's problems with them.

Dembele moved to Barcelona in the summer after effectively going on strike and missing training, for which he was suspended, while Aubameyang, who missed two team meetings last week, has been linked with Arsenal.

Sometimes the player's camp will play up supposed differences with the manager or a perceived lack of respect from the club or supporters, to portray that player as victim, forced to leave a ruinous relationship.
