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.

Now, after former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel also turned down Bayern in favour of Paris Saint-Germain, and with RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhüttl 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".
