Reports: Jupp Heynckes 'To Return To Bayern Munich As Manager

Bayern Munich: Heynckes set to be named interim coach

Jupp Heynckes is set to be appointed as Bayern Munich's new manager on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The German champion made the announcement on their website, on Thursday.

Shock! Horror! It looks like Jurgen Klopp is going nowhere. "That would not have been sustainable".

The German International said, "Carlo Ancelotti wanted me in Madrid, and had bet on me". The first took place at the Allianz Arena but, despite home advantage, Bayern lost on penalties to Chelsea.

Bayern are five points behind arch-rivals Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga table. Manuel Neuer, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, Javier Martinez, Thomas Mueller, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery have experienced bright moments together with 1972 European champion.

Jupp Heynckes played a key role in Jerome Boateng's development.


"I wouldn't take it if I was Ancelotti".

This news is surprising given the coach whose full name is Josep Heynckes has long since left the green pitch. He will certainly be happy to see him return. In their current status, the squad is far from a serious candidate to win the 2017/2018 Champions League.

Nicknamed the 'Baby Mourinho' off the back of his limited football experience as a player, Nagelsmann is renowned for his methodical approach and innovative tactics, meaning he is very much the antithesis of Ancelotti. Bayern president Uli Hoeness' admiration for Nagelsmann is an open secret in Munich. He has emerged as one of the game's few world class midfielders alongside Luka Modric and Casemiro over his time in Spain.

In 2012-13, Bayern Munich became just the fourth club to complete a treble, with the Champions League triumph being that year's crowning glory. I have yet to analyze all this. He has the respect of these players, unlike Ancelotti.

The report suggests the 72-year-old has been coaxed out of retirement to take over from Willy Sagnol until the end of the season.
