Bayern Munich hires Niko Kovac from Frankfurt as coach

Ronaldo and Lewandowski primed for more goals

"We agreed yesterday on a three-year contract".

Heynckes called Kovac "ready for Bayern as he knows the club and has gained experience working for several clubs and the Croatian national team".

"We are convinced that he is the right coach for the future of Bayern", he added.

Bayern' s latest coaching appointment has caused criticism from Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic who accused Munich of not acting entirely professionally. With 40 goals so far, they've already exceeded last season's tally of 36, the task of finding the net being shared equally throughout a team which doesn't feature a standout superstar.

They take on Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup semifinal next week.

"He does it excellently, so for sure he is predestined to become coach of Bayern Munich".

The likes of Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino were all linked with Bayern, but in the end it's Kovac who has won the race to lead The FCB.

Gas transit via Ukraine should be retained
According to energy firm Naftogaz expectations, Ukraine will earn around $3 billion in 2018 from transit. Sebastian Sass, a Nord Stream spokesman, said the pipeline won't dry up gas transit through Ukraine.


His brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant.

Yes, in the social media-driven world that we now live in, where team's compete to unveil new signings in the most freaky ways imaginable, the German league have went back to basics with this portrait of Kovac.

"The timing is unfortunate, and the fact information has leaked to the public - certainly not from Frankfurt, but from Munich - is disrespectful, unprofessional".

The Bavarian giants wrapped up a sixth successive top-flight crown with a 4-1 win at Augsburg last weekend but, although Heynckes said in his pre-match news conference they would not "ease off", they started slowly and were punished by Josip Drmic in the ninth minute.

Berlin-born Kovac took over at Frankfurt in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation playoff that season before finishing 11th past year, when they reached the DFB Pokal final. Defender Andy Robertson said ahead of the draw the team would take great confidence from their performances against the Premier League champions-elect into their next European encounter.

Frankfurt also made it to the final of the 2017 German Cup, which they lost to Borussia Dortmund, and have again reached the semis this year. The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.

Though that will depend on whether he wants to stick around with new boss Niko Kovac now set to arrive in the summer.
