Jupp Heynckes return to Bayern Munich has been confirmed, with him heading back to the German champions for a fourth spell as manager.

Heynckes, who led the Bavarians to the only treble in the club’s illustrious history, will take charge on Monday, leading the club until the end of the season.

The 72-year-old replaces Carlo Ancelotti who was fired after the Champions League loss to PSG.

The veteran boss declared "It's not a comeback. It is a friendship service.

"I would not have returned to any other club in the world. I've only done it because FC Bayern is an affair of the heart for me.

"My coaching team and I will now present everything that the team will present the fans soon again successful football. I am very much looking forward to this task."

Heynckes will be assisted by Peter Hermann - who leaves Fortuna Dusseldorf - and Hermann Gerland, sporting director of Bayern's youth academy.

"Between Jupp Heynckes and Bayern, there is a great deal of trust," said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "We are very grateful to Jupp. He is the ideal coach for Bayern at the moment."

The club's sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, added: "We're convinced that [Heynckes] is the right man to lead the team back to success this season and to reach our goals."

Bayern defender Jerome Boateng is delighted to see the return of his former manager.

"I do not think there is a better solution, which is a great solution for the whole club, because he knows the club inside out,” said Boateng.

“He's a great coach with a lot of experience and a lot of knowledge at his fingertips - he has everything a good trainer needs.”

Bayern have elected to go with Heynckes in the short term with the club increasingly keen on taking Julian Nagelsmann, the young Hoffenheim tactician, next summer.

Hoffenheim had no intention of allowing Nagelsmann - who guided the club into the top four last season - of leaving for the Allianz Arena yet.
