Reports: Jupp Heynckes to manage Bayern Munich for rest of season

Reports: Jupp Heynckes to manage Bayern Munich for rest of season

As for the league, there's an awful long way to go.

Nagelsmann is only 30 years old but is widely considered one of the most promising coaches in Germany.

It is surprising news.

This will be the fourth spell of the 72-year-old tactician in charge of the Bavarians.

Hoeness tells the Munich-based Abendzeitung newspaper that he informed former coach Pep Guardiola of Carlo Ancelotti's replacement.

Half of the team was part of the 2013 treble-winning squad.

Bayern have enjoyed a lacklustre start to their campaign so far.

Jupp Heynckes has revealed that the hierarchy at Bayern Munich has approached him about taking over the club, for the remainder of the season.

Messi y Cristiano nunca conseguirán mis goles, yo fui mejor: Romario
Romario , ex jugador del Barcelona , afirmó este miércoles a O Globo que en el área era mejor que los astros Lionel Messi y Cristiano Ronaldo . "Nunca llegarán a mi número de goles marcados", aseguró el campeón del mundo en 1994.

Bringing Heynckes back to the club as a manager suggests that the club hasn't quite moved on as much they would have liked when they got rid of him. Uli Hoeness, then general manager, described his close friend's sacking as the "biggest mistake" of his career. Details of the negotiations with Tuchel got to light without the club commenting on them.

His last spell in charge of the team showed that he had command of the dressing room.

Heynckes coached Bayern over three periods - from 1987 to 1991, briefly in 2009 and then between 2011 and 2013.

Bayern is lagging in third place on the Bundesliga tables, five points off leaders Borussia Dortmund.

The results might as well indicate if Heynckes is the right therapist.

Senior stars are said to have been upset with the standards and apparent lazy approach to training sessions.

What constitutes success is always up for debate but some decisions like Crystal Palace's to sack Frank de Boer's after just four games is borderline crazy.
