Former Bayern Munich manager Dettmar Cramer dies, aged 90

Dettmar Cramer, who led Bayern Munich to back-to-back European Cup triumphs in 1975 and 1976, dies at the age of 90.

Former Bayern Munich manager Dettmar Cramer has died at the age of 90.

Cramer, who passed away on Thursday at his home in Reit am Winkl, led Bayern to back-to-back European Cup triumphs in 1975 and 1976 with a team that included the likes of Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Muller.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club website: "For me, he was a fatherly friend. He was the person who supported me the most during my early career.

"The fact that I was able to have such a successful career is in a large way down to him.

"Bayern Munich are mourning a great coach and a special person."

Cramer also worked for Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin at club level, and Japan, Germany and the United States on the international stage.
