Bayern Munich: Heynckes named as coach until end of season

Jupp Heynckes is one of the most successful German managers of all time

Jupp Heynckes has confirmed that he has returned to Bayern Munich as the club's new manager.

Two German coaches are believed to be in the running to manage Bayern in the long-term.

Heynckes, who retired four years ago, turned the Bavarians into one of Europe's most dominant teams, culminating in the treble-winning side of 2013, and has been drafted in on a short-term deal.

It was along with Hermann and Gerland that Heynckes led Bayern to the treble.

"I wouldn't have returned to any other club in the world", he said, "but FC Bayern München are very close to my heart. That showed itself again in the conversations that Uli Hoeneß, Hasan Salihamidžić and I have had with him", said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Friday.

The Bundesliga champions made no mention of former French global defender and Bayern stalwart Willy Sagnol, who had stepped in as interim coach after the shock departure of Italian Ancelotti.

The 72-year-old Heynckes led Bayern to the domestic league and Cup double and the UEFA Champions League title in 2013 but then made way for Spaniard Pep Guardiola.

AAA says in-car tech systems are too distracting
AAA said drivers should use infotainment technologies "only for legitimate emergencies or urgent, driving-related purposes". The participants completed audio tests like listening to messages, sending talk-to-text messages and vocal navigation.

Bayern will not want to just stand still and write off another season in which the club only wins the Bundesliga.

3 - Heynckes has a hat-trick of Bundesliga titles to his name from his previous Bayern spells.

A week later, Arjen Robben's second-half victor gave Bayern the Champions League title with a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in an all-German final at Wembley.

Work in Spain followed, at Athletic Bilbao, Tenerife and Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League in 1997.

It will be his fourth time coaching Bayern.

Despite his friendly grandfather-like appearance, Heynckes is a tough disciplinarian who once fined Schweinsteiger and fellow Germany star Toni Kroos for wearing the wrong colour socks to training.
