Bayern's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said despite losing to Real in the 2017 quarter-finals, they held no fear for the Bavarians.

Eintracht Frankfurt's Niko Kovac will replace Bayern Munich's head coach Jupp Heynckes for the upcoming season, the German champions confirmed in an official press release on Friday.

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

Kovac who is a former Croatia global played 34 Bundesliga matches for Bayern from 2001 to 2003, scoring three goals.

His brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant. In games like this, the team performance is important.

The post Bayern Munich Name Frankfurt Manager as Next Coach appeared first on SIGNAL. "We're convinced he's the right coach for the future of FC Bayern".

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

"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said.

Back in October Heynckes returned to Bayern for a fourth spell following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti.

Commonwealth Games: Indian women's hockey team misses out on bronze medal
India's women's hockey team turned in an embarrassing performance in the bronze medal round against England and was thrashed 6-0. Mary defeated Kristina O'Hara of Northern Ireland by a unanimous 5:0 verdict to take the title.

Kicker magazine reported that Bayern would pay a fee of 2.2 million euros ($2.7 million) to trigger a release clause in Kovac's existing contract with Frankfurt.

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 has made a very good and positive impression on me".

Bobic added: "They did their thing and thought of themselves".

The Croat, who had also coached his country at the last World Cup in Brazil, had impressed by helping Frankfurt survive relegation in 2016 before leading them to contention for a European slot for next season.

It's an interesting contrast to a criticism frequently levelled at another candidate for the Bayern Munich job, Thomas Tuchel, whose man-management of some Borussia Dortmund players damaged team morale. Now he has them in contention for Champions League qualification.

Those regulations were reiterated in April 2014 following controversy over the availability of Thibaut Courtois - then on loan at Atletico Madrid - to play against his parent club Chelsea in the Champions League.

Liverpool may be the happiest team of the four after drawing the relative novices - but Roma proved in nullifying Barcelona that they will not be a team just along for the ride.
