Bayern Munich hire Niko Kovac as head coach starting next season

Bayern announced Kovac had agreed a three-year contract to become their new coach on Friday, triggering a reported €2.2 million release clause in the 46-year-old's Eintracht Frankfurt deal.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have hit back at accusations they were "disrespectful" in their signing of new head coach Niko Kovac.

But James' sporadic form during the first half of the season coincided with Ancelotti's failings in Germany - the Italian was relieved of his duties in September and James' Bayern future was suddenly thrown into doubt.

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

"It's a good choice". With Real looking vulnerable despite Ronaldo's extraordinary performances, Bayern has a chance to provide their coach with the flawless send-off - and even provide a little bit more romance.

The elder Kovac was also coach of the Croatian team with his brother as assistant manager. "But where one door closes, another opens".

"It is going to be an explosive tie, but there is no fear from us going into it", Heynckes said after Friday's draw, per Marca.

Bayern did not reveal the cost of poaching Kovac, but both Bild and Sport Bild claimed that his departure before the end of his Frankfurt contract in 2019 would cost Bayern 2.2 million euros (S$3.6 million).

The Colombian is now on two-year loan at the Bundesliga club.

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said. "Not of Eintracht Frankfurt". We can achieve a lot in the next weeks. "We deliberately told Frankfurt as early as possible so they can get a successor". "They did their thing and thought of themselves. Not of Eintracht Frankfurt".

Kovac, who won 83 caps for Croatia but was born in Berlin, has been in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt since 2016.

"You can't buy the Champions League these days".

Danny Murphy wishes Real Madrid had drawn Liverpool in the last four though.

Former Croatia worldwide Kovac, who has signed a three-year contract, claims the whole deal was done on Thursday. "The players must know each other and respect each other", he said.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah will meet his former team in the semifinals.

Bayern had appointed Kovac as he is familiar with the Bavarian side, having played for them before.
