Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann insists he has no regrets about becoming boss of the German giants despite the defending Bundesliga champions making their worst league start in 31 years.
The 44-year-old took over as Bayern coach on 1 July in his first domestic coaching role having led Germany to third at the last FIFA World Cup™ in 2006.
But Bayern have won only two of their six leagues games so far this season and their defence was brutally exposed as title rivals Werder Bremen destroyed them 5-2 at Munich's Allianz Arena last month.
"I take enormous pleasure doing this job," Klinsmann told the Suddeutsche Zeitung. "We have started an exciting phase of training which requires much investment from the players. The results are important, but the overall picture is even more important."
The former Monaco striker also says his work as Bayern coach is vastly different from his previous job as boss of the German national team. "In a club, it is not-stop work. The influence on the players is much greater," he said.
Klinsmann says his side can still defend their Bundesliga title despite their ninth place in the league and losing their last two league games.
"We must finally win points in order to reach the level which is normally ours," said Klinsmann ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with VfL Bochum. "We need a victory so the mood around the squad is good."
