Bayern hit back over 'outrageous' Kovac claims

Bayern hit back over 'outrageous' Kovac claims”

Kovac is also a good friend of his former Bayern teammate Hasan Salihamidzic, who is now Bayern's sporting director.

Eintracht Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac will become the next coach of Bayern Munich in succession to Jupp Heynckes but the swoop will cost the Bundesliga champions more than two million euros, German media reported on Thursday. Firstly, we acted very professionally because we used a clause in the contract of Niko Kovac that he (Bobic) made. Niko was a player at Bayern, he knows the characters, the structures and the DNA of the club very well. "If we'd said it in four weeks, we'd have had peace and the Frankfurters the trouble". Kovac was announced as new Bayern head coach for next season.

Kovac will be assisted by his brother Robert, who fulfils a similar role at Eintracht.

During his playing career, Kovac spent two seasons with Bayern Munich from 2001-03.

After honing his coaching skills as a youth and then assistant coach at Red Bull Salzburg, Kovac managed the Croatian national team to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil before accepting his first club appointment at Eintracht Frankfurt.

After retiring Kovac was briefly an assistant coach in Austria and took over Croatia before signing with relegation-threatened Eintracht in 2016 and turning them into Champions League contenders this season.

Frankfurt's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League took a blow on Saturday in a 4-1 loss at Bayer Leverkusen.

Kovac will succeed Heynckes in Bavaria following another hugely impressive stint in charge from the 72-year-old.

They are now in fifth place, just two points behind Bayer Leverkusen for the final Champions League qualification spot with five games remaining. The German has gone on to lead Bayern to a sixth successive Bundesliga title, while he has the chance to win the treble (again) with upcoming semi-finals against Bayer Leverkusen (German Cup) and Real Madrid (Champions League).
