Bayern Munich are set to appoint their former gaffer Jupp Heynckes – who retired from coaching back in 2013 – as their new interim manager, as per the reports from Guardian.

And should the aforementioned happen, Heynckes will take charge of the Bavarians for the fourth time in his career, having managed them previously from 1987-1992, then in the 2008-09 season and finally from 2011-2013. In his final season in charge, the former Monchengladbach striker guided Bayern in winning a treble; a Bundesliga title, a DFB Pokal honour and a Champions League crown.

Bayern Munich recently parted ways with Carlo Ancelotti after a 3-0 defeat at hands of Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, citing the reason that the Italian did not meet their expectations and the result against PSG hammered the final nail in the coffin. Soon after the sacking, Willy Sagnol was appointed as the interim manager and Bayern yet again gave a disappointing result against Hertha Berlin which let to the former defender commenting Bayern “are no longer the strongest team in Germany.”

Furthermore, the likes of Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Tuchel have been linked as long-term options. Meanwhile, Heynckes will take charge of the club until the end of the current season. Bayern are without a win in their last three fixtures in all competitions and have also shipped in seven goals while scoring four. Sitting seventh on the Bundesliga log, the Die Roten have 14 points at their disposal and are sharing their speck with Hoffenheim. They are still five points behind the league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Heynckes is one of those rare footballers, who have succeeded brilliantly as a manager as well. Back in 2013, after guiding Bayern to a treble, Heynckes had said that he will never coach again and added that he had a worthy farewell.
