Oliver Kahn, former Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper, recommended that his former team should do what they can to bring in Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane for Bayern, says club legend
Speaking during the Champions League match between Juventus and Real Madrid on Tuesday, Kahn made it clear who he thought was the ideal replacement for the soon-to-be-departing Heynckes.
"Without a doubt it would be worth considering Zinedine Zidane, I think he's sensational!" he said on ZDF, the national televsion network.
"The question is, what does he do well? He can combine a squad full of big stars; he was an absolute world star himself; and many former big players don't go on to become great coaches. But he has.
"He has managed to win everything with Madrid. He is closing in on his third Champions League. I think he would be perfect for Bayern."
When asked about Zidane potentially struggling to manage in the German league as he doesn't speak the local language Kahn defended his argument.
"He is French and speaks Spanish, so he could learn German."
