Scholl must choose between club and TV - Rummenigge

Former German international Mehmet Scholl must choose between his job as coach of Bayern Munich's reserves team and that as television pundit, according to Bayern Munich chairman Karl Heinz Rummenigge.

"At one point, you have to choose your career: coach or pundit. The two don't go together," Rummenigge told Sport Bild newspaper.

Scholl's contract with the ARD public television channel runs until the end of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

And Rummenigge said his contract as pundit "will not be extended".

Scholl, 41, is a Bayern icon having made his debut for the Bavarian giants in 1992 and played 334 Bundesliga matches before retiring in 2007. He also won 36 caps for Germany and was part of the squad that won the 1996 Euro

But he has already been flagged up on Rummenigge's radar after he criticised Germany's Bayern striker Mario Gomez at this year's Euro 2012.
