Bayern vow to take their time

28 April 2009 03:00
Bayern Munich have pledged to take their time in finding the right coach to replace sacked former incumbent Jurgen Klinsmann. The former Germany national team manager was axed on Monday following the club's inconsistent form in their defence of the Bundesliga title and their Champions League humiliation at the hands of Barcelona. Hamburg coach Martin Jol and former Bayern boss Felix Magath have both been linked to the vacancy already, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists the club won't be rushed into finding a replacement. "We'll think long and hard in the coming weeks, hold talks and then unveil an appropriate solution after consulting with the supervisory board," he said. "We'll talk to candidates we feel are suitable and then we'll take a decision. "However, we won't be putting ourselves under any unnecessary time pressure while we seek a convincing solution."
