Heynckes Hints at Retirement

MOST COMMENTED

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes indicated he might retire from the game after Bayern Munich’s last game of the season against Stuttgart in the DFB Pokal (German Cup) final on June 1st. The 68-year-old said he would not coach in the Bundesliga again after leaving Bayern this summer and is too old to go abroad.

"Saturday will be my last Bundesliga game as a coach," Heynckes said. "If I was 15 years younger I would seriously think about a job abroad but I am not the youngest any more. Clubs want to do a generation change and you cannot really do it with a 68-year-old."

Bayern has already won the Bundesliga and could still win the final of both the UEFA Champions League and the German Cup, becoming the first German team to complete an historic treble.

Heynckes joined the Bavarian giant for the third time in 2011; he has also had two spells in charge of Borussia Monchengladbach, in addition to having coached Bayer, Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke 04. Outside of the Bundesliga, Heynckes has coached Real Madrid Athletic Bilbao, Tenerife and Benfica. He won the UCL with Real in 1998. Bayern signed former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola in January to replace
Heynckes in June.
