It also has an emotional boost: The German club announced on Friday that former player Croatian Niko Kovac will take over as coach next season from 72-year-old Jupp Heynckes, who is stepping down. "All three of us are shooting together 26 years after Beta and I'm excited about reuniting with my blockbuster jodi".
"Niko played for Bayern, he knows the people in charge and the club's structures and DNA. We are convinced he is the right coach for the future of Bayern". "His brother Robert Kovač (44) will join Niko Kovač, who is now Eintracht Frankfurt head coach, as assistant".

Kovac has also previously coached Red Bull Salzburg's second side, before taking on the role as assistant of the first team under Ricardo Moniz.

Kovac took over at Eintracht Frankfurt in March 2016 with the Hessians fighting to avoid the drop, which they managed only after winning the relegation playoff against FC Nuremberg. Now he has them in contention for Champions League qualification.
"Bayern are a great team and we will need to be at our best in both games". The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.
