"Niko was a player at Bayern, he is very familiar with the people involved as well as the structure and the DNA of the club", said Bayern's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

Outgoing Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes believes Niko Kovac is the right man to continue leading the German giants after he was confirmed as the man to take over next season. Bayern's attempts to convince the 72-year-old Heynckes otherwise were unsuccessful. "It's a good choice, it will work".

"But if anybody thinks this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person - they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona". "It's hard for me now that it's ending soon".

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.

However, Frankfurt football director Fredi Bobic was not pleased that Bayern made the announced before their matches against Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke.

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said. We can achieve a lot in the next weeks. "We were very close to each other and we are good friends".

Guardiola sent off as Salah sends Liverpool into semi-finals
And to be honest, we haven't been this excited for a game of football since.... the Manchester derby at the weekend. According to this indicator, in England, Liverpool is second only to " Manchester United " (12).

"The timing is unfortunate, and the fact information has leaked to the public - certainly not from Frankfurt, but from Munich - is disrespectful, unprofessional. Not of Eintracht Frankfurt". "You can't buy the Champions League these days".

Bayern cruised to the semifinals in overcoming Sevilla 2-1 on aggregate and in Heynckes have the man who led the German powerhouse to the treble in 2013, highlighted by a fifth title in the Champions League or European Cup.

The elder Kovac was also coach of the Croatian team with his brother as assistant manager. In the direct, qualifying ties Madrid have gone through six times and Bayern, five while on the one occasion when they both landed in the same group, both advanced to the next round. Respect is hugely important in such a collective.

Thomas Tuchel was reportedly in the running for the vacancy only for Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to confirm the former Borussia Dortmund coach - strongly linked with Paris Saint-Germain - has agreed to move elsewhere.

Kovac will need to adjust to instructing established stars at Bayern, rather than young players of promise still eager to learn, and he will be expected to maintain the club's high standards. And this season he has scored in a record 11 straight Champions League games, keeping his cool Wednesday when netting a penalty deep in injury time to eliminate Juventus in the tense battle of last year's finalists.
