Klinsmann defiant despite latest Bayern defeat

Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann remained defiant despite his side's seventh defeat of the season left them with only a slender chance of defending their Bundesliga crown.

The 1-0 reverse at the hands of Schalke on Saturday was also their third home defeat and should Wolfsburg beat Energie Cottbus on Sunday, the gap between the two sides will grow to six points with five games of the season remaining.

More importantly, yesterday's defeat left Bayern behind Hertha Berlin in third - not even good enough to guarantee the Bavarian side a place in the Champions League next season.

Inevitably, calls for Klinsmann to be fired grew into a chorus of boos and jeers, punctuated by 'Klinsmann out' chants.

Yet the Bayern coach still has no intention of throwing in the towel and promises he will see the job through.

"When you are coach of Bayern and you are not at the top of the table and the expectations are not being fulfilled, then there is criticism, whistles and discussions about the coach's job" he said.

"I accept that. We will come through this with all that we have. I have got to live with criticism and the (Klinsmann out) calls.

"But direct qualification for the Champions League is an absolute must."

Under Klinsmann, Bayern have yet to top the Bundesliga table all season and with five games to go, the chances of that happening look increasingly slim.

Even club president Franz Beckenbauer admitted they were now in a battle for second place and automatic European football, a target which could yet save Klinsmann's job.

"We have become modest at FC Bayern and second place is all that we can now play for," he said.

"We have got to beat Monchengladbach (next weekend) or it will get tight for Jurgen, and he knows that too."
