After sacking Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern Munich are on the lookout for a new manager.

Bayern are currently trailing Borussia Dortmund by five points in the Bundesliga table and were humbled 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

And the Bavarians need a manager in immediately to stop the slide before it's too late

And it seems the German giants have found the right man.

Well, we say 'found' but they haven’t exactly looked far.

That’s because they’re set to appoint Jupp Heynckes as their manager for a FOURTH time.

That’s according to German outlet Bild - who were first to break the news.

Heynckes ‘retired’ from football after leading Bayern Munich to the treble back in 2013, being replaced by Pep Guardiola.

The 72-year-old will take control of Bayern until the end of the season and is likely to be in charge in time for their home clash against Freiburg next weekend.

Heynckes will hope to get the Bayern players in order after reports suggested they were holding secret training sessions behind Ancelotti’s back.

Guardiola's approval 

And while it’s unknown whether the players will welcome Heynckes’ appointment, it seems his successor in 2013 has given his approval.

"He (Guardiola) promised that he would come to Oktoberfest every year. It was a meeting between friends, but of course we have also spoken about professional matters,” Bayern president Uli Hoeness said.

"I told him who we were going to recruit [as the new Bayern manager] in the next few days and he was satisfied."

Thomas Tuchel, Louis van Gaal and Luis Enrique have all been linked with the post over the past week but it seems the club have played safe and appointed Heynckes once again.
