Heynckes returns to helm of Bayern
Saturday 26 March 2011
Jupp Heynckes will take over as Bayern Munich coach from next season, the club said yesterday.
Heynckes, who opted this week not to extend his contract with Bayer Leverkusen beyond this season, has signed a two-year deal with Bayern and will succeed Louis van Gaal. The club had already announced that Van Gaal would be leaving following a disappointing campaign.
Heynckes, whose low-key, player-friendly approach is the opposite to the explosive Van Gaal, previously won two Bundesliga titles at the Bayern helm.
