Bayern Munich confirm Kovac will replace Heynckes

Bayern Munich confirm Kovac will replace Heynckes

Niko Kovac has signed a three-year deal with Bayern Munich after the newly-crowned German champions paid €2.2 million ($1.9m) to trigger a release clause in his Eintracht Frankfurt contract.

Bayern's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said Real held no fear for the Bavarians, who lost to Madrid in the 2017 quarter-finals. "All three of us are shooting together 26 years after Beta and I'm excited about reuniting with my blockbuster jodi".

Jupp Heynckes will try to win his third Champions League title before stepping down as coach of Bayern Munich. "Niko was a player at Bayern, he knows the characters and the structures and the DNA of the club very well. We are convinced he is the right coach for the future of Bayern".

"The team is excited for the game", Hecking told the club's website.

Kovac, 46, has been in charge of Eintracht since March 2016, saving them from relegation before leading the Eagles to the DFB Cup final in his first full season in charge. And in a one-off game against Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, Liverpool are a match for either.

"We will have news in the next days", Salihamidzic said.

"It's a good choice". "It's unfortunate timing. The fact that information surfaced yesterday not from Frankfurt but from Munich is aggravating, unprofessional and is lacking respect".

Kovac has also previously coached Red Bull Salzburg's second side, before taking on the role as assistant of the first team under Ricardo Moniz.

The likes of Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino were all linked with Bayern, but in the end it's Kovac who has won the race to lead The FCB.

The first leg of the semi-final clash will take place at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, April 25. Like most rivalries, the superpowers have more in common than they care to admit: both are dominant domestically, both hoover up the best young talent and both aspire to represent something bigger than themselves.

Kovac, who was born in West Berlin to parents of Croatian descent, has been praised for fusing together a team of many nationalities, and for its high-pressing attractive style of play.

Bayern started like a side with nothing to play for and they were punished for allowing Gladbach to control possession in the opening stages when Drmic cut inside Niklas Sule and curled a fine shot beyond Sven Ulreich and inside the far post.
