Kovac to Bayern Munich? Eintracht unaware of any deal

"Niko played for Bayern, and knows the people in charge, as well as the structures and DNA of the club very well", Salihamidzic continued.

The 46-year-old Croatian will get a three-year contract from July 1, said the club, just minutes before Friday's Champions League semi-finals draw which left the Bundesliga champions pitted against defending champions Real Madrid.

Outgoing Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes believes Niko Kovac is the right man to continue leading the German giants after he was confirmed as the man to take over next season.

Kovac was appointed at Eintracht in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation play-off that season before guiding them to a respectable 11th-place finish in 2017.

During a brief stint on Bayern's playing staff, the former defensive midfielder won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal double in the 2002-03 season.

Bayern have been desperately hunting a replacement for Heynckes, who came out of retirement temporarily when Carlo Ancelotti was sacked in October after a series of poor results.

The 46-year-old is now at the helm of Eintracht Frankfurt - who sit fifth in the table, 26 points adrift of Kovac's new employers - who already have the league title in the bag.

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

Kovac has overseen the most global dressing room in the Bundesliga, with 18 different nationalities represented at the club.

"[Kovac's decision] surprised us, period, which is extremely important for Frankfurt", Bobic said. That's why this point in time is not a very fortunate one for us.

Bobic added: "They did their thing and thought of themselves". "You can't buy the Champions League these days. I was really impressed", he said.

But we want to channel our inner Fox Mulder, so here are five storylines about the Champions League draw they don't want you to know about. While he might be gunning to eliminate them this year, the veteran tactician remains assured of his place in Real history after guiding the club past Juventus in the 1998 final for a seventh European Cup, and first in 32 years.

They are attempting to be the first club to win the competition in three consecutive seasons since Bayern won it a third time in 1976.

He turned out to be a bargain buy, purchased by Liverpool for £38 million ($54 million) a month before Brazil's Neymar went for 222 million euros ($273 million) to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.
