Jupp Heynckes set to lead Bayern Munich as caretaker coach until end of 2017/18 season

Posted: 5 October 2017 Time: 10:04

Jupp Heynckes has reportedly come out of retirement to resume duties as Bayern Munich head coach until the end of the season.

The Bavarians are currently without a coach after sacking Carlo Ancelotti last month and have since been searching for a replacement for the Italian tactician.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been strongly linked with the position, although Bayern are seemingly keen to not rush in to any decision and have opted to hand Heynckes the reins on a caretaker basis.

Heynckes, 72, previously enjoyed plenty of success with the German giants, having signed off in 2013 with a Bundesliga, DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League treble to add to his two other German league titles.

And, his return would mark a fourth spell with the club, having first led them in 1987 while also holding a caretaker role in 2009 after Jurgen Klinsmann was sacked.
