Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry will not start the club's next Bundesliga clash after angering management with his trip to Paris for a fashion show.

The Germany international was spotted at Paris Fashion Week between Bayern's matches against RB Leipzig and Koln, with both matches ending in a draw.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was not too pleased with Gnabry's exploits despite the players having a day off.

“That is amateurish,” Salihamidzic told German news outlet dpa. 

“It’s exactly what I don’t like. It’s not Bayern Munich to go messing around when you have a day off. A day off is meant to be for resting yourself so that you can push on in the next game.”

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann has revealed he did speak with the German winger, who will start on the bench against Eintracht Frankfurt.

"He can do whatever he wants in his free time", Nagelsmann said, as per Goal.

"[Serge Gnabry] had the chance to show a reaction against Koln," the German manager said at a news conference. 

"Against Koln he was not outstanding so it is clear that this [trip to Paris] is magnified by the media. We had a good chat and I explained him my view of things and I told him the substitution against Koln was not because of the Paris trip but performance-related. We have a player, [Kingsley Coman], on the bench and he has done really well and he will start tomorrow."
