"Niko was a player at Bayern, he knows the characters and the structures and the DNA of the club very well".

"We are convinced that he is the right coach for the future of Bayern", he added. New boss Julen Lopetegui has played the artful 27-year-old in 15 of his 18 games in charge, and the former Barcelona schemer will be expected to underpin La Roja's title tilt this summer.

Just before the draw, Bayern announced that Niko Kovac will take over from the outgoing Heynckes as coach at the end of the season.

His brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant.

A Champions League final for Bayern would be a fitting end to the career of coach Jupp Heynckes, whose last game after his first retirement was the 2013 final.

"I have good memories of our treble season". "It's hard for me now that it's ending soon".

The Chile midfielder is said to be still hurting from Bayern's quarter-final elimination at the hands of Real Madrid last season.

"It is going to be an explosive tie, but there is no fear from us going into it", Heynckes said after Friday's draw, per Marca.

Tabloid paid out $30K to spike story alleging Trump love child
Pressed for more details about his tip and experience with the paper, Sajudin said he would talk only in exchange for payment . Sajudin was paid $30,000 by the Enquirer for the exclusive rights to his story about Trump's out-of-wedlock child.

"The timing is unfortunate, and the fact information has leaked to the public - certainly not from Frankfurt, but from Munich - is disrespectful, unprofessional".

Roma have lost their last six two-legged ties against English clubs, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp rejected suggestions that his side got the lightest possible matchup, saying: "If anybody think this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

The win cements Leverkusen's grip on fourth place and gives them a five-point cushion over Hoffenheim, in fifth, and Frankfurt, who are in the Europa League places.

Both Frankfurt and Bayern last week denied that Kovac was on his way to Munich.

There is an air of nostalgia about the fixtures - the '80s were a glorious period for both clubs, with Roma winning one of its three Serie A titles in 1983 and reaching its only European Cup final the following season.

Kovac is relatively inexperienced - Eintracht was his first club job and he was only appointed in March 2016.

Kovac, who was born in West Berlin to parents of Croatian descent, has been praised for fusing together a team of many nationalities, and for its high-pressing attractive style of play. The Bundesliga champions are famously unwilling to pay excessive fees for players and they may well have landed another bargain.
