Bayern Munich boss admits uncertainty regarding his future

Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has admitted that he is under a bit of pressure after the club’s winless run extended over the weekend. The Bavarian giants had gone three matches without a win across all competitions and that streak prolonged on Saturday as they suffered a shocking 3-0 defeat at home to Borussia Monchengladbach.

Speaking after that game, Kovac said that he cannot judge his future with the German champions but admitted that he may not have the luxury of more than a few games to overturn the club’s fortunes, he said: “I can't answer the question. I know the way things work in football and the Bundesliga.

“I do think we put together great performances in seven games, and now we're not doing that. I know that I am at Bayern Munich and the time you get is different to other places. We already showed what we're capable of and I am convinced we will show it again soon. I'll do my part to make it happen.”

“ With the defeat against Monchengladbach, Bayern have now experienced their worst run in eight years and they are “currently sixth on the table with a four-point difference to table-toppers Borussia Dortmund. Despite this“, Kovac may not be “sacked anytime soon with Bayern chief Uli Hoeness recently indicating that he would continue backing the head coach whatever the situation in the forthcoming weeks, he told Suddeutsche Zeitung: “I clearly stand behind him. No matter what'll happen in the coming weeks.”

Following the international break, Bayern resume their league campaign with games against Wolfsburg and Mainz. The clash at the Volkswagen Arena should certainly test their credentials, given they only scrapped through a victory last time around after a Robert Lewandowski winner coming from the penalty spot with just minutes left on the clock.
