A stunning solo goal from Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala sealed a controversial 4-2 away win at Wolfsburg on Sunday, sending the visitors back to the top of the table.
The win, Bayern's first league victory in 2023, was marred by a late VAR decision to chalk off a Wolfsburg goal, which would have made the score 4-3 with seven minutes plus stoppage time remaining.
Bayern went into the game just hours after sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said he was "disappointed" with injured captain Manuel Neuer for putting "his personal interests above" the club.
Neuer, who is currently out injured with a broken leg from a skiing accident in December, criticised the club's decision to fire long-time goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic, saying he felt "as if my heart had been ripped out".
Speaking with German tabloid Bild, Salihamidzic said: "I understand Manuel is affected personally, but as captain I would have expected a different attitude from him."
On the pitch, Bayern played the majority of the second half on Sunday with 10 men after midfielder Joshua Kimmich picked up a second yellow card.
Bayern struck in the ninth minute through France forward Kingsley Coman, whose curling cross evaded a leaping Thomas Mueller but drifted past goalkeeper Koen Casteels and into the net.
Coman added another just five minutes later, hammering a floating Joao Cancelo ball past a helpless Casteels.
Coman then won a free-kick just outside the Wolfsburg box and Mueller headed in Kimmich's delivery to make it 3-0 with less than 20 minutes gone.
The goal, Mueller's first since September, came on his 427th league appearance for Bayern, equalling Gerd Mueller's all-time record.
Wolfsburg manager Niko Kovac, who won the league and cup double in charge of Bayern, took off centre-back Maxence Lacroix for winger Jakub Kaminski after just 30 minutes.
