"The fact that Mats is now playing for Dortmund is the only thing that worries me a bit. I personally don't like that at all, but that's just my opinion as a Bayern fan. I also talked to Mats. Unfortunately, I could 100 percent understand why he wanted a transfer," Wagner told Bild.
Following the summer arrivals of Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard and Jann-Fiete Arp, Bayern are facing increased pressure to make further signings. But Wagner doesn't feel it's right to criticize the Bavarians for a lack of transfer activity.
"It's ridiculous that you are celebrated publicly for buying as many players as possible. It's more praiseworthy to trust your team like Tottenham od Bayern last year and only a do a few things to really develop your squad instead of satisfying the public with names and sums," the striker said.
Wagner left Bayern to join Chinese side Tianjin Teda in January.
