Voller: Helmes is not fulfilling his potential

Bayer Leverkusen's director of sport Rudi Voller has warned his club's striker Patrick Helmes to start delivering the goods on the pitch rather than complaining off it.

The 26-year-old was an unused substitute in Bayer's 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich last weekend and he left the BayArena in a rage, complaining of "double standards" in the way coach Jupp Heynckes made him wait so long before making a comeback after injury, yet brought Eren Derdiyok straight back into his side on Saturday.

Voller admitted he could understand the player's frustration, but he has arranged a meeting with the player and Heynckes to resolve the issue today.

The story is too old to be commented.
