Bayern Munich re-appoint former boss as interim manager
The 72-year-old returns for a fourth spell in charge of the German giants.
Bayern Munich have re-appointed Jupp Heynckes as new manager until the end of 2017/18 season.
Heynckes, who has agreed to take over until the end of the season, succeeds Carlo Ancelotti.
“It isn’t a comeback but a duty of frienship,” Heynckes has said to German magazine kicker.
“I’ve only done it because I a owe lot to Bayern.
“I have a great feeling and we can get going immediately.”
The former Real Madrid manager retired from football after leading the Bavarians to an unprecedented treble of Bundesliga, DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League titles in 2012/13 season.

The 72-year-old has won the Bundesliga three times and the Champions League once across his previous spells at the club and may likely bring Fortuna Dusseldorf assistant coach Peter Hermann as his assistant.
Carlo Ancelotti was sacked after a disappointing start to current campaign, following a 3-0 away defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
Heynckes returns for a fourth spell in charge of the German giants previously been at the helm from 1987-1991, for a five-game spell in 2009, and again from 2011-2013.
