He has received his fair share of criticism in recent weeks but Hoeness is not concerned and has backed the 27-year-old to bounce back.
"I am not worried about Thomas. Manchester United were ready to pay €100 million for him a year ago," Hoeness told Sport Bild.
"But of course, I do hope that he will soon be an undisputed starter again. And I have no doubt that will soon be the case once more.
"In a normal situation, when Thomas is in form and high on confidence, he will always be a starter at Bayern. He is an absolute key figure for us.
"But I would obviously never put any pressure on the coach to play him."
