Niko Kovac admits that he is unlikely to be given long to turn around Bayern Munich's fortunes following its shock defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bundesliga champion was beaten 3-0 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, a result that leaves it in the fifth place after seven matches, four points adrift of leader Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern won its first seven games of the season in all competitions, but is now four games without a win, a run in which it has scored only two goals.

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked on September 28 last year after going just two matches without a victory, and Kovac, who took over as head coach in July, concedes that he is facing a race against time to correct its form.

"I can't answer the question. I know the way things work in football and the Bundesliga. I do think we put together great performances in seven games, and now we're not doing that," he told a news conference when asked about his future.

"I know that I am at Bayern Munich and the time you get is different to other places. We already showed what we're capable of and I am convinced we will show it again soon. I'll do my part to make it happen." Bayern travels to Wolfsburg on October 20 in its first match after the international break.
