Bayern Munich Announce Jupp Heynckes As New Coach

  • Heynckes a very good solution for Bayern – Low

Bayern Munich have announced the return of former manager Jupp Heynckes, who will replace Carlo Ancelotti as first-team manager until the end of the season.

Bayern have suffered a disappoitning start to the 2017/18 season, losing to Hoffenheim while also drawing with Wolfsberg and Hertha Berlin - results which see them trail league leaders Borrussia Dortmund by five points already.

The club could not be immediately reached for a comment.

Italian Ancelotti took over last season but was sacked after Bayern slipped to second place in the league, twice squandering two-goal leads in consecutive games.

Ancelotti was sacked last month following a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement: "There is a great deal of trust between Jupp Heynckes and Bayern".

Heynckes first managed Bayern between 1987 and 1991, before a short spell as caretaker manager in 2009.

"I would not have returned to any other club in the world", he told Bayern's official website.

Very special means our togetherness with Jupp, "said Hermann who admitted heavily leaving Fortuna who is now leading the Bundesliga standings 2, a caste under the Bundesliga".

Bayern has rehired former coach Jupp Heynckes, 72. He played for two clubs, Borussia Moenchengladbach, where he made 394 appearances and scored 243 goals, before a three-year spell at Hanover 96.

As the contract as just until the end of the season, presumably Bayern will be laying the groundwork for a more long-term successor.

Instead, the club will be looking to Heynckes to bring back the glory days after he won a treble with the club in 2013.
