Bayern München are without a win in the last four games and have slipped to sixth place after losing 0-3 to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the weekend.

Still, struggling coach Niko Kovac's job is safe, Bayern München president Uli Hoeness has underlined.

"I clearly stand behind him. No matter what will happen in the next weeks," Hoeness said in an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Meanwhile, he told Kicker:

"I'll defend Niko Kovac to the bitter end. There is total peace here."

After the coming international break, Kovac and Bayern will hope to get back to winning ways when they face Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena on October 20.
