Bayern Munich coach Heynckes: Real Madrid draw explosive

  • ImageBayern Munich will face Real Madrid in the Champions League

Reports broken by Bild in Germany suggested Bayern have selected Kovac to be the replacement for Jupp Heynckes when the veteran leaves the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season. Accordingly, few Germans know quite as well how to best Madrid in Europe - as Heynckes has already done once in 2012 when he led Bayern past Los Merengues on penalties in the semi-finals (having played the first leg at home). "We're convinced he's the right coach for the future of FC Bayern".

Kovac's current assistant coach, and brother Robert Kovac will join Bayern as well.

The 72-year-old has since guided them to a 27th Bundesliga title and a place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, where the five-time winners will face holders Real Madrid.

Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic blasted Bayern for not getting in touch beforehand, and for the timing of its announcement.

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

The European Cup's most-played fixture and a veritable continental Klassiker, Bayern Munich v Real Madrid needs no introduction.

Liverpool fans would've rejoiced when they drew Roma and I do think that if they get past the Italians, they have the tools to hurt Madrid or Bayern in a one-off game.

"It is going to be an explosive tie, but there is no fear from us going into it", Heynckes said after Friday's draw, per Marca.

At a news conference later Friday, the older Kovac said he had mixed feelings about leaving Frankfurt, but "not many coaches, not many players" get an opportunity at Bayern. "It's unfortunate timing. The fact that information surfaced yesterday not from Frankfurt but from Munich is aggravating, unprofessional and is lacking respect".

The defending champions had a 6-3 aggregate win against their German counterparts in the quarter finals playing a 2-1 first leg away win and another 4-2 spanking at the Bernabeu last season.

Bobic added: "They did their thing and thought of themselves".

The siblings played together at global level, as well as at Bayern. The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.

The bosses and supporters at the Allianz Arena will also be expecting more than the physical, uncomfortable style of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kovac is relatively inexperienced - Eintracht was his first club job and he was only appointed in March 2016.
