Bayern to announce Heynckes as shock Ancelotti replacement

Date published: Thursday 5th October 2017 9:55

Bayern Munich are set to appoint Jupp Heynckes as their manager for the rest of the season.

Bayern sacked Carlo Ancelotti last week after a slow start to the campaign culminated in a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

A number of managers have been linked to the vacant managerial role, with Thomas Tuchel, Luis Enrique and Jurgen Klopp in the running.

Julian Nagelsmann of Hoffenheim was the favourite however, but Bayern are set to appoint a stop-gap until the summer.

According to widespread reports, Heynckes is expected to become Bayern manager for the fourth time in his career.

The 72-year-old retired from football in 2013 after guiding the German club to the Treble.

He also had a spell with the Bundesliga side from 1987 to 1991, as well as some time as caretaker manager in 2009.

Pep Guardiola is surely satisfied.
