Published Add your comment

Former Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has wished his successor, Pep Guardiola, good luck in the role.

Heynckes led Bayern to a historic treble last season, including winning the Champions League final at Wembley last month.

Guardiola will take over the reigns at the Allianz Arena having previously led Barcelona to 14 trophies in a four-year spell.

Heynckes told Kicker: "I wish Guardiola the best and may he have as much success as possible because his team has been mine.

“I would be happy if Bayern win the Bundesliga and the Champions League again."

Heynckes previously led Real Madrid to Champions League success in 1998 before taking over at Bayern in 2011.

The 68-year-old has managed nine different clubs, including Bayern on three separate occasions. Of the 1,174 games he has taken charge of, he has won just over 51% of them.

Guardiola who, in his Barcelona managing career, had a win rate of a remarkable 71.63 per cent replaces him at the Allianz in his first job since leaving the Camp Nou in June last year.

He led Barca to three La Liga titles and two Champions League successes in his four seasons in charge.
