According to Bild, some players didn't stick to the rule at first. Therefore, Kovac repeated the announcement after two weeks in office and threatened to sanction those who wouldn't comply with the new rule.
"The use of mobile phones in the locker room is okay, but otherwise prohibited. If we dine together, it should be normal for people to talk to each other and not play around with their phones," Kovac told Sport Bild and added:
"Even with the physios on the lounger, the players should relax, not be permanently distracted by their phones."
Kovac officially took over as Bayern München head coach on July 1.
