Jupp Heynckes decided not to prolong his career once again and he will leave Bayern Munich after the end of the season – but he insisted that he is very happy with the club’s choice of his replacement.

Bayern Munich have decided to appoint Niko Kovac, the current Eintracht Frankfurt coach and their former player, as a new coach and Jupp Heynckes insisted that he believes that the Croat has been predestined for this position.

The experienced German coach spoke about his future replacement as he said, according to Goal:

“I have already said that Niko Kovac works with a lot of different types of players and nationalities at Frankfurt.”

“He does it excellently, so for sure he is predestined to become coach of Bayern Munich.”

“He has made a very good and positive impression on me. Above all, he is very diligent. That is not always the case.”

“He is innovative. He is a coach who loves football and who maintains good communication with his players. I think Bayern Munich made a good choice.”
