Bayern Munich Confirm Carlo Ancelotti Replacement

Heynckes 'close to taking over' at crisis-hit Bayern

Heynckes 'close to taking over' at crisis-hit Bayern

Italian Ancelotti took over last season, but was sacked last week after the German champions slipped to second place in the league after twice squandering a two-goal lead in consecutive games.

Former manager Carlo Ancelotti was relieved of his duties in the wake of Bayern's disappointing start to the current campaign, with a 3-0 defeat away to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League proving to be the final straw for the club's hierarchy.

Ancelotti was sacked after Bayern lost 3-0 to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, and now only sit in third spot in the Bundesliga.

Despite his age, Heynckes says he feels "fit" enough to coach Bayern, who led to the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble in 2013 - the only German club to ever achieve the feat. And I've only done it because I owe a great deal to Bayern.

The 72-year-old veteran manager had on Thursday confirmed to Rheinische Post, a local paper near his home that Bayern president Uli Hoeness and chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have asked him to return.

"The board of FC Bayern Munchen AG and Jupp Heynckes have today reached an agreement until June 30, 2018".

TechCrunch has reached out to Facebook about its reaction to today's committee briefing and will update if and when we hear back. Burr said the committee has made a number of unsuccessful attempts to contact Steele and hopes he will cooperate.

Bayern Munich have created 105 chances in the Bundesliga this season. We are very grateful to Jupp for agreeing to be our head coach. "At this moment in time, he is the ideal coach for Bayern".

"Heynckes is a master of leadership and tactics", Salihamidzic said.

On their official website, the man himself revealed: "I would not have returned to any other club, but FC Bayern are a matter very close to my heart".

"My coaching staff and I will now do everything to make sure the team give the fans successful football. I'm looking forward to it".

"To win the Champions League for a second time or even to have been in three finals and won two of them is a bit special", Heynckes said after Bayern's Wembley triumph.

Heynckes first managed Bayern between 1987 and 1991 before returning as caretaker boss in 2009.
