◼️ Although he already won the German tournament and will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League, he will not remain in the bank of the Bavarians. Here’s the reason why.
This Friday, Bayern Munich confirmed that Niko Kovac will replace Jupp Heynckes as coach of the first team. In that sense, there are many who wonder why the German coach will abandon one of the four semifinalists of the current Champions League, rival of Real Madrid in that instance.
Thus, it should be noted that Heynckes, who already won the triplet with Bayern in 2013, was not the coach who started the season on the bench of the Bavarians. Don’t forget that who did it was Carlo Ancelotti, also a former Real Madrid coach. However, the results didn’t accompany the Italian strategist, who had to leave the Allianz Arena beforehand.
That’s when the 73-year-old Teutonic coach came back on stage. He accepted the position in the whole of Munich, but made it clear at the end of last year that this would be his last campaign as a coach, and had only returned to Bayern to replace Ancelotti by special request.
It was simply a kind of favor that Heynckes made to the team he had already directed in three other stages of his career. That is why, even though the Bundesliga won this year and is one step away from the Champions League final, Bayern already had to find him a replacement.
