"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.
"Niko Kovač will be the new FC Bayern München head coach from the start of the 2018/19 season". Accordingly, few Germans know quite as well how to best Madrid in Europe - as Heynckes has already done once in 2012 when he led Bayern past Los Merengues on penalties in the semi-finals (having played the first leg at home). "We are convinced that he is the right coach for Bayern's future". "His brother Robert Kovač (44) will join Niko Kovač, who is now Eintracht Frankfurt head coach, as assistant".
"[Kovac's decision] surprised us, period, which is extremely important for Frankfurt", Bobic said. They are back in the last four of the German cup.
Former German global Lothar Matthaeus regards Bayern as the favorite against Real as "they have developed an unbreakable team spirit and are determined to win the trophy".
Kovac is described as a team player, addressing the need to get along with the club's leaders.
After guiding them to an 11th place finish a season ago, they sit just two points behind Bayer Leverkusen for the final Champions League spot.
Originally Bayern was said to be interested in Juergen Klopp (Liverpool) and German national coach Joachim Loew.
Not to be outdone Lewandowski, sporting a black eye from Wednesday's Champions League clash against Sevilla, came on for Wagner to score Bayern's fifth. "I believe Bayern have made a good choice".
Can you imagine a better scenario for Ronaldo than for Madrid to go through the Champions League knocking out the champions in three different leagues on the way to the title, with Ronaldo doing wonderful things all along the way?
Bayern was initially in talks with former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, but he informed the club that he had agreed to take over another team while it was still trying to convince Heynckes to stay. He works with many profiles of players from many nationalities in Frankfurt.
