Bayern relaxed as Klinsmann looks for first win

BERLIN, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich have yet to record a win from two Bundesliga games under Juergen Klinsmann but the club have told their coach not to worry too much if he does not make it third time lucky at home to Hertha Berlin on Sunday.

Klinsmann is in his first season as a club coach, his only experience of note being the heady two years he spent in charge of the German national team.

Club president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is as keen as anyone to see Bayern improve on a record of two draws out of two -- their worst start to a season in nine years -- but he has been trying to relieve any pressure building up on the coach.

'We need wins, to move up the table and to give us confidence,' Rummenigge said.

He added, however: 'We're absolutely convinced that we have the right man for the job and that we're heading in the right direction. We have absolute patience.

'I'm not worked up all. I'm completely calm. We drew ten times last year and we ended up champions by ten points.'

Bayern's progress has been hampered by the absence of French playmaker Franck Ribery, who has yet to recover from the injury he received at Euro 2008.

They will also have to do without midfielder Mark van Bommel for Sunday's clash with Hertha, after his sending-off against Borussia Dortmund last weekend, but Argentine international Martin Demichelis could return.

Bayern are 11th in the table, two points shy of third-placed Hertha and four behind surprise leaders 1899 Hoffenheim -- the only team in the division with a perfect record.

Hoffenheim face a test of just how serious their hopes of a title challenge are when they visit Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

The village club, who have enjoyed a dizzy climb out of obscurity thanks to the backing of Dietmar Hopp, the co-founder of software giant SAP, have so far seen off promoted Borussia Moenchengladbach and relegation favourites Energie Cottbus.

Leverkusen will be a whole new challenge but Ralf Rangnick's young, highly efficient team will at least have no cause for fear as they contemplate the match from the top of the table.
