Despite the rumours that Jupp Heynckes could keep coaching Bayern Munich next season, the Bundesliga club sporting directors have found in Niko Kovac the best replacement for the legendary manager, according to Sport Bild and Bild.
Heynckes, who is at this moment 72, went back to the Bayern bench at the beginning of the season when Ancelotti was fired. Since then, they have conquered the Bundesliga title and are in the German Cup and Champions League semifinals.
However, Bayern Munich have decided that Niko Kovac will be their new coach. The former Croatian national team manager (2013-2015) is having an impressive season with Eintracht Frankfurt and has convinced Bayern sporting directors that he is the right man for the job.
