BREAKING NEWS: Heynckes returns as Bayern coach until end of season
Jupp Heynckes is to make a surprise return to football management after being appointed by Bayern Munich until the end of the season.
Bayern Munich have announced Jupp Heynckes will return to the club as head coach until the end of the season following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.
Despite leading Bayern to the Bundesliga title last season, Ancelotti was dismissed at the end of September after seeing his side beaten 3-0 in the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports claimed Ancelotti had lost the support of several key players in the dressing room and that contributed to his downfall, leaving Bayern chiefs with the task of replacing the experienced Italian.
And they have ultimately turned to a familiar face, with Heynckes returning to Bayern four years after he appeared to retire at the end of an historic treble-winning campaign.
