After sacking Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern Munich are on the lookout for a new manager and a couple of big names have been mentioned.
Bayern are currently trailing Borussia Dortmund by five points in the Bundesliga table and were humbled 3 – 0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
And the Bavarians need a manager immediately to stop the slide before it’s too late, and it seems the German giants have found the right man.
Well, we say ‘found’ but they haven’t exactly looked far. That’s because they’re set to appoint Jupp Heynckes as their manager for a FOURTH time.
That’s according to German outlet, Bild – who were first to break the news.
Heynckes ‘retired’ from football after leading Bayern Munich to the treble back in 2013, being replaced by Pep Guardiola.
The 72-year-old will take control of Bayern until the end of the season and is likely to be in charge in time for their home clash against Freiburg next weekend.
Heynckes will hope to get the Bayern players in order after reports suggested they were holding secret training sessions behind Ancelotti’s back.
