MUNICH: Bayern Munich sporting director Mattias Sammer is determined to quickly re-establish the club as Germany's dominant force following recent disappointments.

Sammer was presented as the replacement for the fired Christian Nerlinger on Tuesday, when the 44-year-old said there were no excuses for Bayern to go a third successive year without a title.

Sammer says, "Self-pity or vanity cannot play a role. ... With the first team we don't have any time at all. We want to be, must be and will be successful straight away."

Bayern lost the cup final and finished runner-up in the league to Borussia Dortmund, while it also lost the Champions League final, in Munich, to Chelsea.

Sammer left his position as director of youth development with the German football federation for a three-year deal with Bayern.
