Bayern Munich appoints Jupp Heynckes as coach for 4th time

German media reported that he could return to Bayern until the end of the season with Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann tipped to take over for next season.

"It is not a new beginning, but an act of friendship;" And I only do it for everything I owe club, said Heynckes in statements to ' kicker '. My coach team and I will now present everything that the team will present the fans soon again successful football.

Can new Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes taste the success he has had before at the club? We thank Jupp for being the head coach again.

Previous coach Carlo Ancelotti was sacked after 14 months in charge on September 28 following Bayern's 3-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti parted company with Bundesliga giants "Bayern Munich" after an internal analysis by the club following their shock 3-0 loss at Paris St. Germain.

Bayern are second on the Bundesliga table, five points behind Borussia Dortmund.

"It is up to each player's intelligence to accept my choices and up to the club to back its manager".

Leading German newspaper Bild questioned whether the move was a good one as they wrote: "Bayern is pulling Jupp Heynckes out of retirement".

Heynckes first took charge of Bayern in 1987 before returning as caretaker manager in 2009.

Both Guardiola and Ancelotti, who won the Bundesliga every season, suffered by way of comparison to Heynckes' treble achievement. The German would have imposed itself on names which sounded in last days like Thomas Tuchel, former coach of Borussia Dortmund, or Julian Nagelsmann, now in Hoffenheim.

As the contract as just until the end of the season, presumably Bayern will be laying the groundwork for a more long-term successor. In Heynckes, Bayern is turning to a trusted hand.
