Jupp Heynckes returns as Bayern boss until end of season

Jupp Heynckes returns as Bayern boss until end of season”

"Bayern is pulling Jupp Heynckes out of retirement", wrote Sport Bild.

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.

"It's not a comeback, it's [because of] friendships, and I've only done it because I have a lot to thank Bayern for", Heynckes told Kicker.

Bayern have confirmed that Heynckes will officially become the club's manager on Monday on a contract until the end of the season, with Peter Hermann and Hermann Gerland to be his assistants. The conversations that Uli Hoeness, Hasan Salihamidzic and I have now led, have also shown this again.

"We're very thankful to Jupp that he's accepted the offer of head coach". Bayern are the only German club to ever achieve that feat.

"Jupp Heynckes [as an option] speaks for himself", Boateng said.

'I would not have returned to any other club in the world, but Bayern Munich is a labour of love for me, ' he said. My staff and I will invest everything we have now so the team will be able to present successful football to our fans again soon. "I'm very much looking forward to this challenge", he added.

"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.

He stepped in as Bayern caretaker coach after Jurgen Klinsmann was sacked in April 2009 and took over in July 2011, after Louis van Gaal's departure, which culminated in the 2013 treble-winning season.
