EX-CHELSEA starlet Miro Muheim has been dumped by his manager for spending too much time in the toilet.
The 24-year-old Swiss defender ended a four-year spell at Stamford Bridge in 2018 without breaking into the senior Blues team.
Youth regular Muheim left Chelsea for Swiss club St. Gallen before moving to Hamburg last year.
He has helped the fallen Bundesliga giants to the top of Germany’s second division this season and has started almost every game.
However, coach Tim Walter canceled the left-back for the duel with Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday.
Muheim admitted: “I arrived late at the training ground because I was in the toilet and I just forgot the time.
“As soon as I was late, the coach told me that I would not start the game.
“I accepted it because I made a mistake – but it kind of didn’t feel the same.
“I’ve learned my lesson. I won’t be late anymore.
“It was a one-time thing that won’t happen again. I was ashamed.”

Muheim finally came on after 65 minutes for the injured Tim Leibold.
And he helped Hamburg to a 2-0 win thanks to goals from ex-Cardiff striker Robert Glatzel and Bakery Jatta.
Chelsea signed Muheim from FC Zurich in 2014, who initially shone for the U18 team.
The defender has 18 international caps in various youth divisions for the Swiss national team, including five for the U21s.
