Real Madrid to appoint Jupp Heynckes?
La Liga news: Jupp Heynckes is 99 per cent certain to take over at Real Madrid, according to Bayern Munich midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is yet to reveal which man will be appointed as the club’s new coach this summer. However, two Bundesliga stars believe that it could be the outgoing Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes.
Heynckes will take charge of his last match as Bayern Munich coach this Saturday. He is poised to clinch the treble, having already guided his current team to glory in the German Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League this season. Victory against Stuttgart in the DFB-Pokal final would seal Heynckes’ career in Germany on a high note.
According to Bayern Munich midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, the manager will not announce his retirement from the game afterward but rather make a sensational return to Real Madrid.
Tymoshchuk was speaking on Russia 2 on Thursday when he declared: “There is a 99 per cent chance that Heynckes will train Real Madrid.”
Los Blancos are determined to bounce back from their disappointing 2012/13 campaign and they are looking for a manager that would be able to turn the tables around with immediate effect.
Fifteen years ago, Heynckes guided Los Blancos to success in the UEFA Champions League. However, the club’s poor performance on the domestic front earned him the sack.
Earlier in the day, Bayern Leverkusen defender Daniel Carvajal was quoted as saying by AS: “I encountered Heynckes in the Bundesliga. I think that he would fit in very well at Madrid with the way Bayern have been playing this season.”
Whether these talks are a matter of promoting Heynckes for the vacant Real Madrid job is yet to be seen. As of now, both Heynckes and present Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho will be focused on clinching victory this Saturday – albeit for very different reasons.
The Spanish giants have nothing to play for ahead of their final La Liga game against Osasuna. However, the ‘Special One’ will be pleased to wave goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu on a positive note.
