The 72-year-old will end his third spell in charge of the club this summer and there has been much discussion surrounding who will take over at the end of the season.

The German club's sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, confirmed today that an agreement has been reached with the Eintracht Frankfurt boss. "We agreed yesterday on a three-year contract". "Niko was a player at Bayern, he knows the characters and the structures and the DNA of the club very well".

"It's disrespectful. We will not talk about it with Bayern now, but we will look for dialogue again in the near future".

"The way Bayern have acted is disrespectful as we are still at a decisive stage of the season", Bobic stressed, adding the news about the Kovac deal was not leaked by Frankfurt.

His brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant.

Liverpool fans would've rejoiced when they drew Roma and I do think that if they get past the Italians, they have the tools to hurt Madrid or Bayern in a one-off game. The former striker has won the Europe's premier club prize as a coach with both clubs (1998 with Real and 2013 with Bayern).

DW profiles the Berlin-born Croat to see what Bayern can expect from their new coach. Indeed, having spoken openly about his desire to win the treble this season, that Madrid represent the next obstacle on Bayern's three-pronged path to glory is one of the more amusing jokes fate has played.

The day before the murders, he picked up his son from her, saying he planned to take the child to NY to see his mother. "She's in NY and he told me he was on his way and after bringing the baby to her and then he was coming back".


Berlin-born Kovac took over at Frankfurt in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation playoff that season before finishing 11th a year ago, when they reached the DFB Pokal final.

"[Kovac's decision] surprised us, period, which is extremely important for Frankfurt", Bobic said.

"The team is excited for the game", Hecking told the club's website.

Last year, Ronaldo scored a second-leg hat-trick as Real edged out Bayern in a thrilling quarter-final after extra time. The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.

Borussia Monchengladbach head coach Dieter Hecking insists his team will not settle for limiting the damage against the champions.

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

Niko Kovac is on his way to Bayern.
