Bayern Name Heynckes As New Head Coach

Jupp Heynckes has agreed with the Bayern Munich board to finish the season as manager of the club after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked last month following a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain..
The German manager, who won the treble with Bayern in 2013, has signed until the 30st of July 2018.

Heynckes retired from management in 2013 but admits the offer to take charge of Bayern was too good to turn down.
"I wouldn't have returned to any other club in the world, but FC Bayern München are very close to my heart," said Heynckes, in a statement on Bayern's website.

"My coaching staff and I will now do everything to bring back successful football for the fans. I'm very much looking forward to this challen
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge believes Heynckes is the right man to resurrect the club's season after a disappointing start under Ancelotti.


"There's a great mutual trust between Jupp Heynckes and FC Bayern," he said.

"That showed itself again in the conversations that [club president] Uli Hoeneß, [sporting director] Hasan Salihamidžić and I have had with him.

"We're very thankful to Jupp that he's accepted the offer of head coach. He's the ideal man for FC Bayern at this moment in time."
