Kovac predestined for Bayern, says Heynckes

Bayern Munich have confirmed Niko Kovac will replace Jupp Heynckes as the club's manager next season.

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic was not willing to ascribe such values to Bayern Munich at a press conference on Thursday following the announcement.

After an inconsistent three seasons at Real Madrid, James Rodriguez joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan at the beginning of the current campaign.

Both Frankfurt and Bayern last week denied that Kovac was on his way to Munich.

Bobic also spoke about the exit clause that was triggered by Bayern, saying: 'Yes, there was an option for Niko Kovac to get out of the contract if an absolute European top club came. "We're convinced he's the right coach for the future of FC Bayern". But Heynckes' long-term assistant and former Fortuna Düsseldorf manager Peter Hermann will remain to support Kovac, who will also be accompanied by his younger brother Robert and Armin Reutershahn, his two Eintracht assistants.

The 46-year-old, who had a long playing career in the Bundesliga, was at Bayern between 2001-03.

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said.

Former German worldwide 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 captained Croatia towards the end of his playing career and his brother took over the armband when Niko retired from worldwide football.

The win cements Leverkusen's grip on fourth place and gives them a five-point cushion over Hoffenheim, in fifth, and Frankfurt, who are in the Europa League places. The siblings played together at worldwide level, as well as at Bayern.

Jupp Heynckes won a Champions League title in 1998 with Real Madrid. "That information made it to the outside - definitely not out of Frankfurt - is very annoying, unprofessional and lacking in respect".
