Bundesliga matches and counting - Heynckes' Bayern return in Opta numbers

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich confirmed Friday that veteran German coach Jupp Heynckes will take over as manager until the end of the season, replacing the sacked Carlos Ancelotti.

Bayern were on the lookout for a successor to Carlo Ancelotti having sacked the Italian last week following the Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The club could not be immediately reached for a comment.

Heynckes confirmed on Thursday that Bayern have approached him and that he was considering their offer.

Heynckes, who has not worked since 2013, had also coached Bayern from 1987 to 1991 and briefly took over at the end of the 2008/2009 season before becoming head coach from 2011 to 2013. The talks, conducted by Uli Hoeness, Hasan Salihamidzic and myself, have shown it once again.

Heynckes walked away in June 2013 after Bayern lifted the Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup trophies in a glorious fortnight. We are very grateful to Jupp for agreeing to be our head coach.

"He is at the moment the ideal coach for Bayern".

Despite winning the Bundesliga in his first season, Ancelotti was on shaky ground after a poor start to the league this season.

Heynckes added: "I wouldn't have returned to any other club in the world, but Bayern Munich is a love affair for me". My coach team and I will now present everything that the team will present the fans soon again successful football. "I'm very much looking forward to this challenge".

"To win the Champions League for a second time or even to have been in three finals and won two of them is a bit special", Heynckes said after Bayern's Wembley triumph.

It was along with Hermann and Gerland that Heynckes led Bayern to the treble.
