Beckenbauer wants results

03 October 2008 12:28
Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer has admitted that under-fire coach Jurgen Klinsmann needs his team to start winning matches. Bayern face Bochum at the weekend on the back of two successive Bundelsiga defeats and a 1-1 draw against Lyon in the Champions League. Beckenbauer said: "I hope Klinsmann's system will be working, because one thing is clear - he needs results. "But I don't see any signs that the communication between him and the players has impacted." Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was more upbeat about the future though, saying after the Lyon game: "That was a step in the right direction. "The team gave the right response and we are optimistically looking ahead now."
