Niko Kovac: 10 things you didn't know about Bayern's new coach

Bayern also announced that 46-year-old Niko Kovac will take over as their coach and confirmed new contracts for their golden agers, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

"Neither we [Manchester City] nor Barcelona are in the semi-finals, so I will support Bayern, I hope they have the luck they deserve", Guardiola said about the club he managed before arriving in the Premier League.

Niko Kovac will be Bayern Munich's new head coach, replacing Jupp Heyncke who is leaving at the end of the season. "Niko was a Bayern player and knows the people in charge, the structures and the DNA of the club very well".

"It's disrespectful. We will not talk about it with Bayern now, but we will look for dialogue again in the near future". "His brother Robert Kovač (44) will join Niko Kovač, who is now Eintracht Frankfurt head coach, as assistant".

The 46-year-old Kovac, who spent most of his playing career as a central midfielder in Germany, was a Croatian worldwide and formerly guided the Croatian national team.

"Panita, I wish you the best in your new stage... except when we meet in the Champions League, of course". They should have probably won four- or five-nil.

Born in Berlin to Croatian parents, both brothers played for the Croatian national team as well as Bayern.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, known for their bold claims, say the forward has warned Ronaldo that one Bayern star in particular is desperate to beat Los Blancos.

The European Cup's most-played fixture and a veritable continental Klassiker, Bayern Munich v Real Madrid needs no introduction. Now he has them in contention for Champions League qualification. "A huge fixture, in a very positive way", he said.

After former Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel rejected an offer, announcing he will join a big European club overseas.

However, the 26-year-old has actually improved since the exit of Ancelotti, putting in some fine performances for returning coach Jupp Heynckes.

The Champions League's final four includes three traditional heavyweights and a team that has never lifted the fable trophy before in AS Roma.
