Heynckes returns as Bayern coach until end of season

Heynckes returns as Bayern coach until end of season”

Veteran German coach Jupp Heynckes (AFP pic below) confirmed reports yesterday that he is considering a return to Bayern Munich following Carlo Ancelotti's dismissal.

"It's not clear yet or signed", he told German site RPonline, "I have to analyse the whole thing first".

Two German coaches believed to be in the running to manage Bayern - former Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel and Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann- have no prior experience with the club.

Heynckes confirmed he has met with Bayern Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, president Uli Hoeness and Director of Sport Hasan Salihamidzic.

Heynckes spoke to Der Spiegel's Matthias Geyer and Kurt Rottgen at the end of the campaign, having been replaced by Pep Guardiola, and said he had "no intention of coaching again" after "a worthy ending", but he also added he has "a problem with the finality of saying 'never'".

Italian Ancelotti, who took over in July 2016, was sacked last week after poor results and former Bayern defender Willy Sagnol is now in temporary charge.

Jupp Heynckes retired from football altogether following the 2012/13 season, in which he led Bayern Munich to an unprecedented treble of Bundesliga, DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League titles.

The German is expected to take up an offer to return as coach of Bayern over the next 48 hours.

Heynckes then spent two years with Bayer Leverkusen-the first saw him engineer a 24-match unbeaten run in the Bundesliga, while the following season he finished second, above Bayern, as Borussia Dortmund took the title in 2011.
