"Niko Kovac will be the new coach from July 1, 2018", said Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic in a statement.

Niko Kovac, the head coach of Eintracht Frankfurt, will replace Jupp Heynckes as Bayern Munich's head coach after the 2017-18 football season, the German champions said on Friday.

Under Kovac, Frankfurt have been one of the Bundesliga success stories of recent years, but the 46-year-old's inexperience has raised eyebrows.

Bayern had appointed Kovac as he is familiar with the Bavarian side, having played for them before.

Heynckes, who was drafted in for the remainder of the season when Carlo Ancelotti was sacked in September, thinks the club have made the right decision by appointing the former Croatia global. "We are going into many important games". Lewandowski put Bayern ahead from the spot early in the second half, but after Ronaldo equalised, Sergio Ramos put through his own net to restore parity in the tie.

"It's disrespectful. We will not talk about it with Bayern now, but we will look for dialogue again in the near future". Aged 18 years, 307 days, Havertz set up two goals.

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

'The speed [of the transaction] surprised us very much.

"There was no contact between the clubs", Bobic added.

Kovac led Eintracht to the final of the DFB-Pokal last season, although Borussia Dortmund proved too strong and won 2-1.

Kovac, who was born in West Berlin to parents of Croatian descent, has been praised for fusing together a team of many nationalities, and for its high-pressing attractive style of play.

And Rodriguez is looking forward to lining up against Real in the Champions League last four.

During Frankfurt's press conference ahead of their match against Bayern Leverkusen, Kovac said "it has nothing to do with Fredi [Bobic] or me that things were made public the way it happened".

Liverpool will face Roma in the semifinals of the Champions League later this month as they continue their attempt to win it for the first time since 2005.

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. It dropped five points below Leverkusen, which consolidated the last qualification place for Europe's top competition with four games remaining.
