Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel was left fuming after Bayer Leverkusen loanee Josip Stanisic scored against his parent club.

Bayer Leverkusen prevailed with a 3-0 win, with Stanisic among the scorers. The 23-year-old is on a season-long loan from Bayern, who he joined as a youth player in 2017.

While players on loan in the Premier League are not allowed to play against their parent clubs, that rule does not apply in the Bundesliga.

Former Chelsea manager Tuchel expressed his bewilderment that such a scenario was allowed to happen.

Tuchel said: ‘In England there’s a good rule where when you take a player out on loan, they can’t play against you. To me it makes more sense. Unfortunately, the rule does not exist in Germany’.
