Munich:

Bayern Munich has strongly denied media reports that it is looking to replace coach Jupp Heynckes following a string of poor results.

The Bundesliga side says in a statement that it has "full confidence in Jupp Heynckes and his work" following reports Wednesday that it was already considering alternatives to the 66-year-old.

Bayern dismissed the reports as "rumor-journalism" and says club bosses "condemn this outrageous media speculation, which is not based on facts, in the strongest terms."

The club says it will consider legal advice against any similar reports in future.

Bayern has slipped seven points behind Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund with 10 games left to play.
