Bayern Munich confirm new coach to succeed Heynckes


Klopp said: "I tried to think about what I feel, but it was not that I thought "Thank God not Bayern, thank God not Real Madrid, yippee Roma" or the other way around".

German champions Bayern Munich have announced Eintracht Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac will succeed Jupp Heynckes as their manager at the end of the season, BBC Sport reports.

Salihamidzic said: "We agreed a three-year contract on Thursday". Now he has them in contention for Champions League qualification.

He said cyber specialists from the GRU - Russian military intelligence - targeted Yulia's email accounts as far back as 2013. The Foreign Ministry says that it is Russia's response to Georgia's previous decision over the Skripal case.

Bayern made it clear only German speakers would be considered for the role, meaning Kovac ticked a box many big-name coaches could not. "This error can't happen in the Champions League", Vidal (who was watching Wednesday's Madrid-Juventus game from the stands as Bayern edged out Sevilla on the same night) said afterwards. "An area where we are doing well". "We have great respect but don't feel any fear". And in a one-off game against Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, Liverpool are a match for either. They also met in last season's quarterfinals, when Real triumphed, 6-3, on aggregate. "I'm a fan of wingers", he said.

It is no surprise for either Bayern and Real to be in the last four - anything less would have been measured a failure for clubs that will meet for 25th and 26th times in Europe, making it the most-played UEFA competition tie.

Never before have Bayern Munich entrusted the position of head coach to such a young man with no prior experience at a top club.

"Bayern did contact us but all details have surfaced". It allows him to leave "for a big European club" for 2.2 million euro. He joins from Eintracht Frankfurt, where he had a contract to 2019, for a reported transfer fee of US$2.5 million (RM9.7 million).

Back in October Heynckes returned to Bayern for a fourth spell following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti. Both were not available. Former German worldwide Stefan Effenberg called him a ideal solution despite his lack of global experience with a big club.

In doing so, it replaces Seven, which has been Australia's premier tennis broadcaster for more than four decades. Australia's anti-siphoning laws prevent this scenario from occurring in this country.

Kovac will need to adjust to instructing established stars at Bayern, rather than young players of promise still eager to learn, and he will be expected to maintain the club's high standards.
