Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has revealed that some of the players wanted Niko Kovac gone

Bayer Munich parted ways with Niko Kovac last week after the club lost 5-1 to Frankfurt. Bayern felt that they were not improving under him and could not risk further drifting away from the title race.

Recently, Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness came out to reveal that the decision to sack Niko Kovac was taken after the approval of some of the players. Hoeness also showed his faith in the new manager.

“There have certainly been currents within the team that wanted Kovac gone,” Hoeness told ZDF.

“That’s why the leadership reacted accordingly.”

“During the talks, which are due in the next few weeks, we will certainly talk first about Hansi Flick,” Hoeness said.

“One thing is clear: after such an outstanding week, with two convincing wins, you cannot say that we’re going to send Hansi Flick away and get someone who might only be able to work for a few months.”
