Effenberg hits out at Ribery and Kroos over Hertha Berlin 'rock, paper, scissors' game

The Bayern duo came up with a new way of deciding who was on free-kick duty, but their choice did not fall down too well with the club's former midfielder
Former Bayern Munich midfielder Stefan Effenberg has slammed Franck Ribery and Toni Kroos for unproper behaviour in Saturday's 6-0 victory against Hertha Berlin.

The 43-year-old's criticism comes as a result of the duo playing a game of 'rock, paper, scissors' to determine who would take a free kick during the game.

"They were playing against a team that is fighting against relegation and for them to be joking around - this should not happen," Effenberg told Sky90.

This is not the first time, however, that this has happened in the Bundesliga this season: in November, Borussia Monchengladbach duo Marco Reus and Mike Hanke did the same thing during a 3-0 win against Koln.

Bayern lie in second position in the Bundesliga table, five points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.
