Kovač to replace Heynckes as Bayern boss next season

He said: "Our sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, has held talks with coaches - that's his job - and among them was Tuchel".

The 46-year old former Croatia worldwide played 34 Bundesliga matches for FC Bayern from 2001 to 2003, scoring three goals.

Bayern Munich has announced Niko Kovac as their manager from next season onwards.

Former Bayern player Kovac was named on Friday as the man who will take over from interim boss Heynckes in July.

"My pulse was racing but I stayed calm, I knew it was decisive", said Ronaldo. "Bayern have made the right choice".

Rummenigge and Hoeness will also have been impressed by Kovac's ability to build a team featuring an eclectic mix of characters: the current Frankfurt squad contains 18 different nationalities.

Asked about Kovac's lack of managerial experience in the Champions League, Heynckes added: "He was a Champions League player himself and when I came to Munich in 1987 from Monchengladbach, I was very young and inexperienced".

Heynckes took charge following the dismissal of former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti in October, and led Bayern to their sixth successive Bundesliga title.

After retiring Kovac was briefly an assistant coach in Austria and took over Croatia before signing with relegation-threatened Eintracht in 2016 and turning them into Champions League contenders this season.

"It must be a day to celebrate for media and fans with so many highlights", said the 72-year-old coach of the 2018 German champion.

A goalless draw against Sevilla yesterday was enough to send Bayern Munich into the Champions League last four with a 2-1 aggregate victory to keep their hopes of a treble-winning season alive.

"We were obviously surprised especially in this phase (of the season) we are in which is extremely important for us", Bobic said.
