With Bayern Munich announcing that their manager next season is to be Niko Kovac, who will succeed Jupp Heynckes, the news has upset the manager's current club greatly.

The appointment continues a remarkable upward trend for 46-year-old Kovac, who will take over on July 1, after an impressive spell in Frankfurt - his maiden job in club management.

However, the 26-year-old has actually improved since the exit of Ancelotti, putting in some fine performances for returning coach Jupp Heynckes.

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

Despite relative inexperience after a stint in charge of Croatia, Kovac saved Frankfurt from relegation after taking over in March 2016 and led the team to the German Cup final the following season.

"We're all different and we have to accept and tolerate each other's characteristics", he continued, leading him to the conclusion that "you can't manage every footballer the same". This season, he has led them to fifth in the Bundesliga. As a player, he had captained the side at the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008.

You can understand why: James, whose goals and assists have been key to Bayern's sixth successive domestic title, has settled seamlessly into life in Bavaria and - playing in a deeper midfield role - is perhaps a more complete footballer than ever.

Rahul Gandhi, Congress leaders hit streets demanding #JusticeForAsifa, gather at India Gate
The police had barricaded all the routes leading to India Gate. "It is a sad state of affairs", said Maken. Calling the Kathua incident a crime against humanity, Gandhi has said the crime can not go unpunished.

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.

The Spanish giants have owned the tournament in recent years, becoming the first club in history to win it in its modern format in back-to-back seasons last year.

Bayern have won four of the six previous last-four ties between the two clubs, starting with a 3-1 aggregate victory when the clubs first met in 1976.

"He's got a very, very positive biography".

The bosses and supporters at the Allianz Arena will also be expecting more than the physical, uncomfortable style of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Originally Bayern was said to be interested in Juergen Klopp (Liverpool) and German national coach Joachim Loew.

"It is just the draw and I know it is very exciting, but it is good because the most important news is we are still in the competition".
