Bayern Munich confirm Kovac will replace Heynckes

After retiring Kovac was briefly an assistant coach in Austria and took over Croatia before signing with relegation-threatened Eintracht Frankfurt in 2016 and turning them into Champions League contenders this season. Lewandowski put Bayern ahead from the spot early in the second half, but after Ronaldo equalised, Sergio Ramos put through his own net to restore parity in the tie.

The 46-year-old Croatian will start a three-year contract from July 1, the club announced just minutes before Friday's Champions League semi-finals draw which left the Bundesliga champions pitted against holders Real Madrid.

"These are two clubs with a great tradition in European football and two teams who play very attractive football".

Former Bayern Munich player, Niko Kovac, has been named as Juup Heynckes's replacement in head coach position of the German champions from next season.

"Yes, there was an option for Niko Kovac to get out of the contract if an absolute European top club came".

Heynckes was only tempted out of retirement in order to help Bayern after they sacked Carlo Ancelotti last October.

"The procedure, I think, is extremely questionable, as I said before".

Comey: Kelly Called Trump "Dishonorable" for Firing Me
Republicans will highlight Democratic criticism of Comey over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email. Mr Comey writes that Mr Kelly, now the White House chief of staff, was "emotional" over the manner in which he was sacked .

"Here we are, a day before playing Leverkusen, and we are talking about things that have nothing to do with it".

"Neither we [Manchester City] nor Barcelona are in the semi-finals, so I will support Bayern, I hope they have the luck they deserve", Guardiola said about the club he managed before arriving in the Premier League. That information also came exclusively from another big German city'.

The Bayern coach said it is not only a challenge for Bayern but Real as well.

Kovac led Eintracht to the final of the DFB-Pokal last season, although Borussia Dortmund proved too strong and won 2-1.

Those regulations were reiterated in April 2014 following controversy over the availability of Thibaut Courtois - then on loan at Atletico Madrid - to play against his parent club Chelsea in the Champions League.

Bayern's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said that despite losing to Real in the 2017 quarter-finals, Zinedine Zidane's side held no fear for the Bavarians. "I believe Bayern have made a good choice". They are back in the last four of the German cup.

Gladbach opted to play on the counter-attack thereafter and Wagner punished their reluctance to get forward with a pair of strikes, the second of which Yann Sommer should have done more to keep out.
