Bayern Munich Appoint A Familiar Face As Carlo Ancelotti's Replacement

Bayern Munich Appoint A Familiar Face As Carlo Ancelotti's Replacement

The 72-year-old comes in to replace Carlo Ancelotti, who lost his job at the Allianz Arena at the end of last month.

A stinging 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League led the club to sack Ancelotti last week.

The announcement was done via the club's Twitter account saying: "Jupp Heynckes will take over as #FCBayern head coach until the end of the season".

Heynckes added: "I wouldn't have returned to any other club in the world, but Bayern Munich is a love affair for me. I'm really looking forward to this task".

Heyneckes has had an illustrious run with the club.

His final season saw Bayern Munich win an historic treble, which included a DFB-Pokal triumph and a famous Champions League victory, beating Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley.

"In the situation that Bayern find themselves, he is certainly a very good solution".

Club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is also ecstatic about the development, dubbing Heyneckes as the "ideal" appointment. The conversations that Uli Hoeness, Hasan Salihamidzic and I have shown this again. We are very grateful to Jupp for agreeing to be our head coach. Apart from that, certain locker room tensions also call for notice.

Together with "Bavaria" Jupp Heynckes in the 2012/2013 season, took the Champions League and three times champion of Germany.

Heynckes faces a hard task in attempting to get the best out of a Bayern squad that have lacked cohesion at times this season, while the club were also criticised in some quarters for their recruitment policy in the summer transfer window when they focused mainly on bringing in players with potential as opposed to established stars.
