JUPP HEYNCKES HAS been officially announced as the new manager of Bayern Munich until the end of the season, the club announced on Friday afternoon.

Bayern have confirmed that Heynckes will officially become the club's manager on Monday on a contract until the end of the season, with Peter Hermann and Hermann Gerland to be his assistants.

Ancelotti was sacked last month following a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

He also stated: "There is a great bond of trust between FC Bayern and Jupp Heynckes. At present he is the ideal coach for Bayern", he added. "We are convinced that he is exactly the right man to lead the team from the current situation back to success to achieve our goals".

Together with "Bavaria" Jupp Heynckes in the 2012/2013 season, took the Champions League and three times champion of Germany.


"I wouldn't have returned [to management] to any other club in the world", he said of his decision to come out of retirement.

Bayern have suffered a disappoitning start to the 2017/18 season, losing to Hoffenheim while also drawing with Wolfsberg and Hertha Berlin - results which see them trail league leaders Borrussia Dortmund by five points already.

Heynckes confirmed he has met with Bayern Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, president Uli Hoeness and Director of Sport Hasan Salihamidzic.

Heynckes walked away in June 2013 after Bayern lifted the Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup trophies in a glorious fortnight.

"My coaching staff and I will now do everything to make sure the team give the fans successful football. I am very much looking forward to this task".
