Bayern Munich name Frankfurt's Niko Kovac as next coach

The Eintracht handler has been confirmed as the next Bayern Munich manager, and will take over July 1, after signing a three-year deal.

Asked about Eintracht Frankfurt coach Kovac's lack of managerial experience in the Champions League, Heynckes added: "He was a Champions League player himself and when I came to Munich in 1987 from Monchengladbach, I was very young and inexperienced". Niko was a Bayern player, he knows the people in charge as well as the structure and the club's DNA.

FC Bayern München manager Jupp Heynckes says his team still have the appetite for winning matches in the Bundesliga, despite already securing the league title.

Kovac's current assistant coach, and brother Robert Kovac will join Bayern as well.

Bayern's attempts to convince the 72-year-old Heynckes otherwise were unsuccessful.

Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic was furious, accusing Bayern of being "not professional and disrespectful". The former striker has won the Europe's premier club prize as a coach with both clubs (1998 with Real and 2013 with Bayern).

"I have good memories of our treble season".

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said.

Kovac who is a former Croatia global played 34 Bundesliga matches for Bayern from 2001 to 2003, scoring three goals. "That information made it to the outside - definitely not out of Frankfurt - is very annoying, unprofessional and lacking in respect".

Bayern has been on the lookout for a new boss after failing to persuade Heynckes to stay on for another season, and they vowed to have a new man lined up by the end of April.

Berlin-born Kovac took over at Frankfurt in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation playoff that season before finishing 11th a year ago, when they reached the DFB Pokal final.
