The old boy achieved so much that he couldn’t make his mind up whether to retire or not.

Heynckes enjoyed remarkable success in the dugout by leading Bayern Munich to a historic era of dominance in 2013. They’ve since made it seven consecutive Bundesliga titles.

The great German also led them to back-to-back Champions League finals in 2012 and 2013, with the club winning the latter on route to a stunning treble.

The former Real Madrid manager also worked his magic during a two-year stint at Bayer Leverkusen, where he restored Die Werkself’s Champions League status.

After coming out of retirement to lead Bayern to more glory in 2017/18, Heynckes left yet again for what he insists will be the final time.
