MUNICH (AP) - Bayern Munich says its former coach Dettmar Cramer, who led the club to the European Cup titles in 1975 and 1976, has died. He was 90.

The well-traveled Cramer coached in Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Japan and many other countries, doing development work on behalf of the German football federation.

He was an assistant coach for Germany at the 1966 World Cup, when it lost the final to host England.

Popularly known as “Napoleon” for his small stature, Cramer also coached Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga.

The German football federation says Cramer worked in more than 90 countries.
