Bayern appoints Niko Kovac new coach

Bayern appoints Niko Kovac new coach

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

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic was not willing to ascribe such values to Bayern Munich at a press conference on Thursday following the announcement.

"We were obviously surprised especially in this phase (of the season) we are in which is extremely important for us", Bobic said.

"The timing is unfortunate, and the fact information has leaked to the public - certainly not from Frankfurt, but from Munich - is disrespectful, unprofessional. That's annoying, unprofessional and without any respect". With 40 goals so far, they've already exceeded last season's tally of 36, the task of finding the net being shared equally throughout a team which doesn't feature a standout superstar. "But everything immediately was made public". But one thing is clear and that is that it's the team that matters not me. It's got nothing to do with a togetherness.

Thomas Tuchel had been regarded as a frontrunner, before Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claimed the former Borussia Dortmund boss - expected to replace Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain - has agreed a deal with another club. It allows him to leave "for a big European club" for 2.2 million euro. It's annoying we must talk about this.

"There is no reason to doubt that I will be the coach of Frankfurt next season", he said.

"Niko played at Bayern and knows those responsibilitiesas well as the structures and the DNA of the club very well". "We are convinced that he is the right coach for Bayern's future".

The 46-year-old is now at the helm of Eintracht Frankfurt - who sit fifth in the table, 26 points adrift of Kovac's new employers - who already have the league title in the bag.

"He also has worldwide experience, having taken Croatia to the World Cup". As a player, he had captained the side at the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008.

James has been a consistent performer for the recently-crowned Bundesliga champions throughout the season.

The 46-year-old, who had a long playing career in the Bundesliga, was at Bayern between 2001-3.

Klopp is hoping to bolster his ranks in the summer in a bid to challenge for the Premier League title, an opportunity which Rodriguez reportedly facies.

Los Blancos haven't been great in La Liga this campaign but there's just something about Europe that brings out the best in them. He left his mark. Although he was unable to steer them out of the Bundesliga's bottom three in his first season, he oversaw a 2-1 aggregate victory over Nurnberg in the relegation play-off.

And Rodriguez is looking forward to lining up against Real in the Champions League last four.

"He's got a very, very positive biography". The siblings played together at worldwide level, as well as at Bayern.

"It is going to be an explosive tie, but there is no fear from us going into it", Heynckes said after Friday's draw, per Marca.

But Bayern believed they were robbed after Arturo Vidal was sent off in Madrid and Ronaldo's second and third goals, which were scored in extra time, should have been ruled offside.
