A former Bayern defender, Kovac has always been considered a leading contender to replace interim coach Jupp Heynckes, who plans to retire at the end of the season.

The appointment continues a remarkable upward trend for 46-year-old Kovac, who will take over on July 1, after an impressive spell in Frankfurt - his maiden job in club management. "We agreed on a three-year contract yesterday".

Bayern have their eyes firmly on next week's German Cup semi-final against Leverkusen and the looming Champions League last-four clash with Real Madrid but their second-string team had no trouble against Gladbach. "Niko and I talk about everything but I've received no information".

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

Kovac, born in Berlin to Croatian parents, is under contract to Frankfurt until 2019. This season, only Bayern and Schalke have better defensive records than Eintracht while only Hoffenheim have received more yellow cards.

Now, after former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel also turned down Bayern in favour of Paris Saint-Germain, and with RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenh├╝ttl likely to sign a new deal with the Red Bull club, the Bayern bosses have settled on Kovac. He also has an historic connection to Bayern Munich, having made 51 appearances for the Bavarians between 2001 and 2003. "But different cultures mean: different influences, different ways of thinking". Kovac was announced as new Bayern head coach for next season.

"We're all different and we have to accept and tolerate each other's characteristics", he continued, leading him to the conclusion that "you can't manage every footballer the same".

Meanwhile, Bayern have also confirmed that wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are in talks over securing extended stays in Bavaria after discussions on Thursday.
