Bayern Appoint Niko Kovač as their Next Manager

Ronaldo and Lewandowski primed for more goals

It inspired Bayern to a 37th home league match without defeat in their first outing since it was announced Heynckes, who set a record by participating in his 1,034th Bundesliga match as a player or coach, would make way for Eintracht Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac from next season.

The German club's sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, confirmed today that an agreement has been reached with the Eintracht Frankfurt boss.

"We made seven changes from the team against Sevilla, there is a harmony and a great atmosphere in the team", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes.

"Niko played for Bayern, and knows the people in charge, as well as the structures and DNA of the club very well", Salihamidzic continued. "We are convinced that he is the right coach for Bayern's future".

It could be an emotional end to the season for Heynckes, who led Real to the 1998 Champions League title but was nonetheless fired at the end of that season, then came back to win the trophy in 2013 with Bayern.

I'll take the team that has conceded just eight goals in eight UCL games this season.

The European Cup's most-played fixture and a veritable continental Klassiker, Bayern Munich v Real Madrid needs no introduction.

Wagner made way for Lewandowski and the Poland worldwide tucked Joshua Kimmich's cross past Sommer in the 82nd minute, but he scuffed a chance at the death that would have seen Bayern register six for the third successive Bundesliga home match.

Menendez asked if Trump had ever asked him to "interfere" in the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller . No Collusion, so they go insane !" the president tweeted Wednesday.

Kicker magazine reported that Bayern would pay a fee of 2.2 million euros ($2.7 million) to trigger a release clause in Kovac's existing contract with Frankfurt.

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said. "It's unfortunate timing. The fact that information surfaced yesterday not from Frankfurt but from Munich is aggravating, unprofessional and is lacking respect". "In football, you always have a chance as you saw in the Champions League in midweek".

After the end of his playing career Kovac was briefly an assistant coach in Austria.

"If anybody think this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona", he said.

The 12-time winners have triumphed in the sides' two most recent two-legged ties, producing a ferocious display of counter-attacking football to win 4-0 at the Allianz Arena in the 2014 semi-finals, before a victory in extra-time in last season's quarter-finals.

Kovac is described as a team player, addressing the need to get along with the club's leaders.

DW profiles the Berlin-born Croat to see what Bayern can expect from their new coach. The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.
