Heynckes backs Kovac to succeed at Bayern ahead of Monchengladbach clash

Ronaldo and Lewandowski primed for more goals

Former Bayern Munich player, Niko Kovac, has been named as Juup Heynckes's replacement in head coach position of the German champions from next season. "All three of us are shooting together 26 years after Beta and I'm excited about reuniting with my blockbuster jodi".

The Bundesliga have taken a very artistic approach in unveiling new Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac... using nothing more than a few pencils and a sheet of paper. Both already know the club, as they were players there. "We are convinced he is the right coach for the future of Bayern".

Kovac will be assisted by his brother Robert, who fulfils a similar role at Eintracht.

The 46-year-old Kovac took over at the "Eagles" in March 2016 and led the club out of the Bundesliga doldrums.

Fox plans to launch a dedicated cricket channel and will exclusively broadcast the Men's One-Day and T20 Internationals. In doing so, it replaces Seven, which has been Australia's premier tennis broadcaster for more than four decades.

Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic was furious, accusing Bayern of being "not professional and disrespectful".

The Frankfurt coach said his move would have "no influence" on the team's remaining games of the season.

Bayern Munich will play against Real Madrid in the Semi-Finals of the UEFA Champions League, as Liverpool will lock horns with AS Roma.

Real is looking to become the first club to win three straight European Cup titles since Bayern's hat trick between 1974 and 1976.

Chemical weapons watchdog confirms UK findings in Russian ex-spy case
Russian Federation denies any involvement, saying Britain hasn't provided evidence to support its assertion. It noted that the chemical was of "high purity" with an "almost complete absence" of any impurities.

Regarding Kovac, Heynckes said the former Bayern midfielder is a good choice to take over his job.

He said at a press conference on Friday: "The offer has surprised us at this stage of the season, but we owe a lot to Kovac". "It's unfortunate timing. The fact that information surfaced yesterday not from Frankfurt but from Munich is aggravating, unprofessional and is lacking respect". "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".

Liverpool supporters might get mercilessly mocked because they believe next year is always "our year" in terms of grasping an elusive top-flight English league title - but when it comes to continental success, it might just be their time.

The defending champions had a 6-3 aggregate win against their German counterparts in the quarter finals playing a 2-1 first leg away win and another 4-2 spanking at the Bernabeu last season.
