Jupp Heynckes has confirmed that he has been offered the opportunity to become Bayern Munich interim boss until the end of the season.
The former Bayern coach, who will be taking over for a fourth spell in charge should he accept the offer, has revealed a meeting with Uli Hoeness, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Hasan Salihamidzic. “They have asked me to takeover as a coach until summer 2018. We spoke about many things.”
Heynckes told German newspaper Rheinische Post: “Nothing is clear, nothing is cut and dried. I have to think about it for now. Four years have passed since I ended my work at Bayern and the football has changed.”
Heynckes first coached Bayern from 1987-91, then on a caretaker basis in 2009 before his most recent stint between 2011 and 2013.
As well as winning the Champions League with Bayern, he also lifted the trophy with Real Madrid in 1997-98, after which he was thereafter sacked for failing to perform in La Liga.
