The German manager has come under fire after Bayern’s slow start to the new Bundesliga campaign.

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has insisted Julian Nagelsmann still has the full backing of the club’s hierarchy.

A shock defeat against Augsburg stretched Bayern’s winless run in Bundesliga to four games on Saturday.

The Bavarians have slipped to the fourth spot in the Bundesliga despite their solid start in the Champions League.

Reports are already emerging of unrest in Bayern’s dressing room. But Kahn downplays the situation, saying the team has enough time to reclaim their top spot in the Bundesliga.

“We are totally convinced of Julian [Nagelsmann],” he told Sport1.

“The coach gives the players enough solutions. I think that’s quite normal: it’s the team, the team is on the pitch. It’s also about turning the chances we create into goals.

“I think that’s the most important thing. That the team deals with the fact that we get so little return for making these opportunities.

“Maybe after the start, everything went so smoothly and easily, somewhere the belief took root that you could do the Bundesliga on the side.

“You have seen how strong the teams are against and at some point, we have to accept that.

“Thank God we are still at the very beginning of the season. We always have the strength to get back to the front, where we belong, to the top of the table.”
