Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola 'will not change philosophy' Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola says he will not change his tactical approach, despite criticism after the Champions League defeat by Real Madrid. The Bundesliga champions were thrashed 4-0 at the Allianz Arena, losing 5-0 on aggregate in the semi-final tie. "I have my ideas and I have to convince my players," said Guardiola, whose team dominated possession in both games against Madrid without scoring. Bayern under Guardiola * Includes all competitions Played 53 Won 42 Drawn 5 Lost 6 Goals for 143 Goals against 43 "Following this defeat I am even more convinced of my philosophy." Former Barcelona boss Guardiola led the Catalan club to 14 trophies in four seasons between 2008 and 2012, with the success built on his short passing and possession-based 'tiki-tika' philosophy. He has instilled a similar approach at Bayern since replacing Champions League-winning coach Jupp Heynckes last summer, leading the Bavarian club to the Bundesliga title in Marc ...
Jupp Heynckes should have never left. He was the one who won the champions league, he was the one who built the current legacy of Bayern Munich. With all the respect to Pep, we want Heynckes back !
Did Sir Alex Ferguson cost Man United Guardiola? The Spanish coach has admitted he met with Sir Alex to discuss the managerial role at United in 2012. Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he may well have been offered the Manchester United job by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012, but couldn’t understand the Scot properly. According to reports mega successful Spanish coach said that he went for food with Sir Alex whilst the pair were both in New York in 2012 and that whilst there the then-United head-coach could have offered him his job. At the time Guardiola was taking a year-long sabbatical from football following his now famous reign at Barcelona, where he won two Champions League titles. Naturally he was billed as a number one candidate to replace Ferguson when the United boss eventually stepped down, but he ended up instead opting to take up Jupp Heynckes position in charge of Bayern Munich. And now the 43-year-old has joked that it could have been Sir Alex’s accent which ultimately led to ...
who is who in tomorrow's champions league last 8? Bayern Munich There has seldom been a more dominant football team in recent years than this current Bayern Munich outfit. Pep Guardiola has seemingly built upon perfection since replacing the all-conquering Jupp Heynckes last summer, leaving many suggesting a back-to-back Champions League triumph is something of inevitability. They remain a united machine of a team, with no stand-out stars taking the attention away from what is a model outfit. Bayern were the one team nobody wanted in Friday's draw and their pairing with an under-achieving Manchester United side means that their status as favorites has only strengthened. Real Madrid Real Madrid have been chasing La Decima for 12 years now, and while they have reached the semi-finals on three occasions since their last win in 2002, they have rarely looked as destructive as they have at times this season. The business end will present them with tougher fixtures than those they have negotiated so far in the C ...
Football Club Bayern Munich Wins Laureus 2014 Team Of D Year Award Bayern Munich have won the Laureus World Team of the Year 2014 award. Bayern had a phenomenal last year under former coach Jupp Heynckes and became the first team in German football history to complete the treble of Uefa Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal. The 2013 team award was in recognition of Bayern completing the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble last season. The ceremony came the day after the unbeaten champions wrapped up the quickest Bundesliga title in 51 years of the league. Bayern Munich legend and World Cup winner Paul Breitner was in Kuala Lumpur to receive the Laureus World Team Award from Johann Cruyff. Breitner said: “I would like to thank Laureus World Sports Academy for honouring us with this outstanding Award. It is another great moment in the history of our fantastic club. And it is a great honour and a pleasure for me to be here to take this Award, on behalf of Bayern Munich, back to our cit ...
Bayern far from untouchable: Bayern Munich have been almost untouchable in the Bundesliga but their edgy performance against Arsenal suggested that the lack of competition at domestic level could hinder their European ambitions. Bayern again found the Champions League a different proposition as they struggled to break down a surprisingly cautious Arsenal in the first half of Tuesday's game and showed vulnerabilities in defence when the visitors came at them in the final half hour. The last time Bayern failed to win a competitive game was also in the Champions League last December, when they squandered a 2-0 lead and lost 3-2 at home to Manchester City. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also faced Bayern last season in the round of 16 and was able to make a brief comparison between last year's Champions League-winning side, coached by Jupp Heynckes, and Pep Guardiola's version this year. "Bayern are a good side but they were more vulnerable this season than last year," he told a news conference after the game. ...
This time last year, on a steamy night inside the Allianz Arena, the great and the good in this Bayern Munich team wobbled in a way we have never seen before. Manuel Neuer looked at his captain Philipp Lahm to ask what could be done. Lahm looked at Arjen Robben. Robben looked at Toni Kroos. Kroos looked at Thomas Muller. Blank faces all round. Only Arsenal, with dramatic strikes from Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny, had the answers in a powerful Champions League performance. Instead it ended for Arsenal in a way that it always seems to end for them these days - glorious failure. Bayern, under coach Jupp Heynckes, squeaked through and went on to win the trophy. This evening, when Arsenal step into this giant hot- air balloon of a stadium on the outskirts of Munich, they will need the same again and more following a 2-0 first-leg defeat at the Emirates if they are to topple Pep Guardiola's team.
Bayern want to destroy us - Borussia Dortmund chief exec European and German Champions Bayern Munich want to "destroy" Borussia Dortmund by signing their best players, says the chief executive of the Champions League and Bundesliga runners-up. Bayern, 17 points clear of their rivals in the table, paid Dortmund £37m for Mario Gotze in 2013 with striker Robert Lewandowski following for free in May. Bayern wanted to destroy us," Dormund's Hans-Joachim Watzke told Bild. They have helped themselves to our players, so we wouldn't be a danger." He added: "It was all done legitimately and we have to live with that." Dortmund won successive league titles in 2010-11 and 2011-12, before thrashing Bayern 5-2 in the German Cup Final in May 2012. However, under coach Jupp Heynckes the Bavarian giants hit back by claiming the treble last season - beating Dortmund to win the Champions League, in addition to the Bundesliga and cup. Dortmund have only made one signing in January, with midfielder Milos Jojic joining for a ...
Bayern Munich star Xherdan Shaqiri is reportedly being lined up by Liverpool as an alternative to Chelsea-bound Mohamed Salah. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was looking to snap up Swiss outfit FC Basel's Egyptian star Salah before the transfer window slams shut next Friday night, but Chelsea launched a counter-bid and appear to have secured his signature in a reported £12million deal. It leaves the Northern Irishman still searching to bolster his squad at Anfield as the Reds are in a great position to end their four-year exile from Champions League football this term. And 22-year-old Switzerland international, Shaqiri, is thought to be the man in Rodgers' sights as the player has struggled for first-team action at the Allianz Arena under both current coach Pep Guardiola and former boss Jupp Heynckes. Shaqiri would no doubt relish a move to Anfield, where he would have a greater chance of playing regular football in the build-up to the summer's World Cup in Brazil. But Guardiola will possibly want to keep the ...
KLOPP AND FERGUSON COMPLETE THE PODIUM Heynckes Wins FIFA World Coach of the Year As expected, Jupp Heynckes won the FIFA World Coach of the Year Award. The now retired German manager had an outstanding final season with Bayern Munich, winning the Champions League, the Bundesliga and the German Cup. The other two finalists were Borussia Dortmund coach, Jürgen Klopp, and Former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson. Heynckes is only the fourth winner of an award previously won by José Mourinho (2010), Pep Guardiola (2011) and Vicente Del Bosque (2012). In the award's previous three editions, both Guardiola and Mourinho were nominated. Del Bosque was a finalist in 2010 and 2012, whilst Sir Alex Ferguson was runner-up in 2011.
A tearful Cristiano Ronaldo was named the world's best footballer for the second time on Monday, preventing his great rival Lionel Messi from winning the award for a fifth year in a row. The Portugal and Real Madrid forward was so overcome with emotion he could barely complete his acceptance speech. "Thank you to everyone, my team mates, the national team and my family, to everyone here. Eusebio and (Nelson) Mandela were very important for me, I can't speak," he said after accepting his prize. Argentine Messi, hampered by injury problems at Barcelona late in the year, finished second in the poll, officially known as the Fifa Ballon d'Or. Frenchman Franck Ribery was third. Jupp Heynckes, now retired, was named coach of the year for the first time after his Bayern Munich team won an unprecedented Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble. Ronaldo secured the title with 1,365 points, ahead of Lionel Messi with 1,205 points and Franck Ribery with 1,127 points. The votes are held by the captains and c ...
FOOTBALL UPDATE: Coach Pep Guardiola does not believe that Bayern Munich are the best team in Europe. Guardiola is aiming to replicate predecessor Jupp Heynckes, who won the Bundesliga, Uefa Champions League and DFB-Pokal during his final season at the club. With Bayern leading the Bundesliga and having secured Champions League qualification as Group D winners, Guardiola has enjoyed a successful start to his debut campaign at the Allianz Arena.

RONALDO SETS RECORD, LEVERKUSEN, OLYMPIAKOS INTO LAST 16 : LONDON Wed Dec 11, 2013 5:23am IST Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo set a Champions League group phase scoring record on Tuesday as Bayer Leverkusen and Olympiakos Piraeus reached the last 16 and snow forced Galatasaray's match with Juventus to be abandoned. Holders Bayern Munich's record-breaking run of 10 consecutive Champions League wins came to an unceremonious end after Manchester City staged a memorable fightback after conceding two early goals to win 3-2 at the Allianz Arena. However, Bayern still won Group D with City finishing in second place. Prolific Ronaldo took his tally to nine for the campaign in Real's 2-0 win at FC Copenhagen, with the nine-times champions also setting an all-time record in European competitions by netting in 31 successive matches. Ronaldo, in his first game back since sustaining a muscle strain on November 23, scored with a simple close-range finish three minutes after the break, Real's second after Luka Modric's ...
Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has accepted club director Matthias Sammer's criticism for the way the side have performed since the appointment of Pep Guardiola. Bayern secured a 2-0 victory against Hannover on Saturday to record their fourth victory out of five in the Bundesliga this season but, that did not prevent Sammer from slamming the players' effort. Boateng admits die Roten have not reached the heights that saw them grab an unprecedented German treble under Jupp Heynckes last season. "I think he’s right [to criticise]," Boateng told the club's official website. "Matthias Sammer doesn't say anything that isn't of value. "I think the team has to accept the criticism, because we have a lot of games and need to concentrate on those." Bayern begin the defence of their Champions League crown on Tuesday against CSKA Moscow. The German Champions are in Group D alongside CSKA, Manchester City and Viktoria Plzen but the 25-year-old says it is far too early to be talking about retaining their title ...
Guardiola hires ex-Barca staff for Bayern | Pep Guardiola has brought several of his Former Barcelona colleagues to Germany as he prepares to begin work as Bayern Munich head coach next week. The Spaniard has recruited Domenec Torrent to be one of his assistants and another Spaniard, Lorzen Buenaventura, to be his fitness coach as part of the new regime at the reigning European and Bundesliga champions. Die Welt reports that Manuel Estiarte will make the move from the Camp Nou to the Allianz Arena as a consultant, while there will also be a role for Guardiola's brother and agent, Pere, in Bavaria. However, the two-times Champions League-winning coach will also retain some of the staff who helped guide outgoing boss Jupp Heynckes to the Treble last season. Long-standing coach Herman Gerland, 59, who has developed the likes of Holger Badstuber, Thomas Muller or David Alaba in the club's youth academy, will work as one of the assistant coaches.

How Bayern Munich Beat Borussia Dortmund To Win The 2013 Champions League Background The Bundesliga became the fourth league to provide both teams for a Champions League Final. La Liga (Real Madrid vs. Valencia ’00), Serie A (Milan vs. Juventus ’03) and the Barclays Premier League (Manchester United vs. Chelsea ’08) all came before. Bayern was making a third appearance in the final of the Champions League in the last four seasons having lost previously to Inter in 2010 and to Chelsea in 2012. Bayern entered the match having already won the Bundesliga and with a date against Stuttgart next weekend in the German Cup Final. This was stage 2 of a possible treble and if achieved it would be the first ever by a German club. Last season, with Jupp Heynckes as manager, Bayern finished as runners-up in all three competitions. Under manager Jürgen Klopp Borussia Dortmund did the German domestic double last season but had also failed to qualify from the group stage of the Champions League. This season a poor ...
To illustrate the increased scale of it, the club had used the same Harris Suite in Stamford Bridge's West Stand to announce the appointment of Rafa Benitez in November, but only half the space was used. Reflecting Mourinho's huge personality and profile, this conference was attended by over 250 journalists – more than for either Jupp Heynckes or Jurgen Klopp in the media events the day before the Champions League final. Illustrating the kind of circus it occasionally dipped into, it was preceded by the following request: "Ladies and gentlemen of the press, take your seats. The main event will be starting shortly."

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has insisted they are in no hurry to replace Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager. The Spanish capital club parted company with Mourinho by mutual consent last month following a disappointing campaign in which they finished 15 points behind Barcelona and were eliminated from the Uefa Champions League at the semi-final stage by German side Borussia Dortmund. Real have been linked with moves for outgoing Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes and Paris Saint-Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti. However, Perez revealed the club are yet to contact any potential candidates, stressing they will not be rushed into appointing a successor. “In the coming days, we will look at the coaching staff and decide what we want for next season,” he told Spanish television programme Los desayunos de TVE. -Leo10
Jupp Heynckes has said he will take a break from football management next season, ending speculation he will replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. The 68-year-old, who will be replaced by Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola in an appointment announced by Bayern in January, won the Champions League last month as well as the Bundesliga and Cup double for an unprecedented treble by a German club. "I am still impressed with the events," a tearful Heynckes, who took over for the third time in 2011, told reporters. "From July 1 I will not take over any club here or abroad. I will recover, think about what has happened in the past weeks and months. "The last two years were intense and outstanding," said Heynckes, whose career as a coach and player stretches back to 1963, adding his team had learned a lot after just missing out on three titles last season. "I had told my wife after last year's Champions League final defeat that I would complete my contract at Bayern but not go beyond that." Heynckes led Bayern t ...
After finishing his final season at Bayern Munich with a treble of titles – Champions League, German Cup and Bundesliga -, Jupp Heynckes has confirmed that he will retire from football. "As from 1st July, I will no longer manage a club – be it inside Germany or abroad", said Heynckes, who will be replaced by Pep Guardiola at the Bavarian club. However, the 68-year-old German toyed with the idea of a possible return to the game: "I've got something against definitive plans". Heynckes has already come out of retirement once. In 2009, the coach returned to lead Munich for another three seasons, which culminated in Bayern's incredible Champions League victory. Heynckes spoke of interest from several other clubs, including one that "had the same aura as FC Bayern, with a similar international presence but without the expected success." The Bundesliga champions organised a farewell press conference for the club legend, with Uli Hoennes and Sporting Director KarlHeinz Rummenigge also present.
The Robert Lewandowski saga is coming to a close - with the Manchester United and Chelsea target declaring that a move to Bayern Munich is all but done. United have been linked with the Borussia Dortmund striker for over a year, while Chelsea's interest is relatively recent. But the Premier League heavyweights have missed out on the Poland international, who is set for Champions League winners Bayern. Pep Guardiola will take charge of the Bundesliga giants this summer - fresh from their Treble glory under Jupp Heynckes - and Lewandowski is set to move to the Allianz Arena too. "We have an agreement for quite some time (with Bayern)," the Pole told Bild. "I have informed the person in charge. I assume that now everything is clear and I may change clubs this summer. That would be best for all parties." The news comes as another bitter blow for Dortmund, who have already lost the excellent Mario Gotze to their bitter rivals.
Jupp Heynckes Plays Down Real Madrid Speculation Former Bayern boss dismisses suggestions of move to the Spanish captial. Former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes has denied speculation linking him with the vacant managerial post at Real Madrid according to Goal.com. Heynckes star has never been higher after he led Bayern to a historic treble last season, that included memorable victories against Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund on their way to Champions League glory. But Heynckes has found himself out of a job, despite bringing such silverware to the club, as the Bavarian giants prepare to welcome Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola to the club. That has prompted speculation that Heynckes could find himself employed in the Spanish capital. Real are in the market for a new manager since deciding to part ways with Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho last week. It is thought that the club’s number one target had been PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti but the Ligue 1 champions are remaining resolute in their determination ...
Outgoing coach Jupp Heynckes has said he expects a Bayern Munich star to break Lionel Messi's stranglehold on the player of the Year Award after the Champions League winners' historic treble.
Forget about your tiki taka - Guardiola can't lose unless he changes Bayern's style How do you improve a near-perfect team? When Pep Guardiola arrives at Bayern Munich in the summer to succeed Jupp Heynckes, he will inherit a side who have won the lot - and in remarkable fashion. Saturday’s DFB-Pokal final victory over Stuttgart brought to an end a fantastic season. Their statistics are, frankly, ridiculous – they lost one Bundesliga game all season (due to a late own goal against Bayer Leverkusen), dropping just two points after Christmas; they even beat Barcelona 7-0 over two legs in the Champions League. As it stands, Bayern are a winning machine. Regardless of whether the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger or Anatoliy Tymoshchuk are in the starting XI, the Bavarians have won this season. They visited Hannover - a team who boast a proud home record - with just a handful of first-choice players and won 6-1. They met Borussia Dortmund, the beaten Champions League finalists, five times across the season ...

Jurgen Klopp has hit out at Bayern Munich via German newspaper Bild, suggesting that he has heard nothing about an agreed or official deal for star striker Robert Lewandowski . Klopp has gone on to say that he expects the striker to be a Dortmund player heading into next season suggesting the links and confirmation from various sources at Bayern Munich and the player’s agent are all wrong. It’s only a couple of days since Dortmund were narrowly beaten in the Champions League final by their greatest rivals but Klopp is clearly annoyed which is going to make him less than willing to do business with Bayern. “As of today there is no official offer from Bayern Munich. I am still assuming that Robert will be playing next season for us - The really funny thing is that they all pretend as if the deal is already done. Jupp Heynckes says this, his agents say that,” Klopp told Bild . That leaves the door ever so slightly still open for Manchester United if they want to try and secure a transfer for one of t ...
SUNNIE SPORT UPDATE: Lewandowski's agent confirms Bayern move The agent for Robert Lewandowski said the Borussia Dortmund striker will transfer to rival Bayern Munich ina matter of weeks. Asked on Poland television whether Lewandowski is moving to Munich, agent Cezary Kucharski simply replied: “Yes.” He said that talks between the clubs areunder way, but that nothing had been signed. The 24-year-old Lewandowski remained tight-lippedabout his plans after Dortmund’s loss to Bayern in the Uefa Champions League final on Saturday, but outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes hinted after the gamethat the Polish striker is joining the Bundesliga champions. Kucharski said Lewandowski is “curious to get to know a new club and new life.” Lewandowski was thesecond-best scorer in the German league this season with 24 goals in 31 games. He scored all four goals in a 4-1 win over RealMadrid in the Champions League semi-finals. He has another season left to run on his contract with Dortmund.
Bayern focus on treble mission The heavens opened up over Munich on Sunday afternoon but nothing could dampen the spirits ofFC Bayern München's supporters as their heroes returned home clutching the Uefa Champions League trophy. It was a day for celebrations as Bayern returned to Germany at around 17.30CET following their 2-1 victory against domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Saturday. Gone were the painful memories of the club's 2010 and 2012 showpiece losses as Jupp Heynckes and his players touched down on home soil as European Champions. Heynckes was first out of the aircraft amid heavy showers and ice-cold temperatures, before showing off the trophy with his captain Philipp Lahm. Around 30 different television crews and 80 Munich Airport staff members welcomed Bayern onto the runway, although the tired players did not have much to say after a long night of partying.

SUNNIE SPORT UPDATE : Bayern Munich win Champions League team prize UEFA have announced their Champions League2012/13 award winners, with AC Milan defender Philippe Mexes scoopingthe prize for the best goal of the tournament. The Frenchman pulled offan audacious overhead kick against Anderlecht in the group stages to help his side claim a 3-1 away win. Unsurprisingly Bayern Munich claim the Team of the Tournament prize after their final triumph at Wembley on Saturday against Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund. There was some consolation for Dortmund as their entertaining manager Jurgen Klopp scooped the Coach of the Tournament award. Jupp Heynckes' Bayern Munich were in imperious form as they claimed European glory, going through the groupstages with just one loss on their record, before beating Barcelona and Juventus with a combined 11-0 victory across four games in the knockout stages. It was their semi-final victory over Barcelona which earned the best result of the tournament accolade. A 4-0 first le ...
Aside from relief and elation, Philipp Lahm’s main thought when the final whistle blew at Wembley on Saturday evening will have been: At last! Finally, Bayern had claimed their fifth triumph in the world's most prestigious club competition. And at last, club captain Lahm and his deputy Bastian Schweinsteiger successfully negotiated the final, toughest steps to the summit of European football.    “I'm especially delighted for the Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm generation, because they've won the biggest prize at last," commented coach Jupp Heynckes. “It's just magnificent, because they've finally added an international trophy to their many domestic honours. Leaving aside the World Cup for a moment, this has to be the crowning glory for every player."   The generation spearheaded by the Bayern pair have come so close yet so far on several occasions, in the 2010 and 2012 Champions League finals, in three defeats at the semi-final stage with Germany at the EURO and World Cup, and a lost fina ...

Naturena Junior on the drawing board No going Baxter: Chiefs double- winning coach Stuart AFTER his "once upon a time" start, the Stuart Baxter fairy-tale is only just getting underway. After a season which sees Sir Alex Ferguson bow out at 71 with the English Premier League title under his belt and Jupp Heynckes leave Bayern Munich at 68 with the Bundesliga and Champions League wrapped up, an end-of-era atmosphere pervades large swathes of football-speaking Europe. But in South Africa, the 58-year-old Baxter from Wolverhampton will not be thrown to the wolves.

'For some of my players it was time to win something like this': Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes celebrates Champions League victory
SPORT NEWS:Champions League final: German superiority over Premier League. Bayern Munich's massed ranks of red celebrated avoiding the fate of losing their third successive Champions League final with a rousing rendition of an old England classic. The Euro 96 anthem "Football's Coming Home" was one of the souvenirs Germany took away with them - as well as the trophy - in that memorable summer. And it was back again on another sunny Wembley night of vindication for Bayern, match-winner Arjen Robben and that country's great coaching statesman Jupp Heynckes. The facts are bare. Bayern Munich cleansed the wounds of Champions League final defeats to Inter Milan in 2010 and, in their own imposing Allianz Arena to Chelsea in 2012, with a 2-1 victory over Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund. It gave the Bavarian giants, the beast that once spawned the nickname "FC Hollywood", a fifth win in this tournament. They are level with Liverpool and only Real Madrid and AC Milan are above them. Scratch underneath those st ...
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes believes his side's Champions League final victory on Saturday will kick-start a new era for the club.
Bayern Munich's win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final at Wembley was a demonstration of German football at its very best. Neither Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund base their game on slow, patient passing or possession - they both play a high-tempo game, full of intensity and are always looking to createchances. The final was not about two teams who play in Barcelona's style, Before the game, I was talking about how quickly both teams would get forward, but the other feature of their play we saw on Saturday was how quickly they both got back. Dortmund started so well and stopped Bayern from playing but, in the end, the best team won. Bayern definitely deserved their victory and the man who has got to take plaudits is their manager Jupp Heynckes. He has changed this team around completely since taking charge in 2011. He learned part of that from Dortmund, in that he has got his players fitter than theirs, something I didn't think was possible. Dortmund dominate opening stages Dortmund k ...
Klopp looks forward and focuses on "Berlin 2015" [26.05.] Following his team´s unfortunate defeat in the Final of the Champions League, Jürgen Klopp´s first words to his team were: "Heads up, lads! We will be back, perhaps not to Wembley, but we will try to reach the Final again!" He continued: "We were so close, but my team has had a fantastic season." So, what are your first thoughts about the Final? Firstly let me offer my congratulations to Jupp Heynckes and Bayern Munich. I am so pleased for Jupp, in particular. We deserved to be here and I think we proved that this evening. The atmosphere in the stadium was amazing. What our fans did for us today was simply amazing. And the game itself? It was a tight game. Thomas Müller said he was cramping up. Reus, Lewandowski and others did, too. It´s been a long season for them all. We haven´t been able to rotate our resources as much as Bayern have. We kept the game open and alive and almost did enough to win it. My team performed so well in phases that ...
Heynckes hints at Lewandowski transfer Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has dropped a clear hint that Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski will join the newly-crowned Champions League winners next season. Lewandowski's Dortmund contract expires in June 2014, but after his advisor Maik Barthel has insisted Lewandowski will leave in June, Heynckes said he expects the Poland star to join Bayern. "As far as I know, Mario Goetze will be joining Bayern Munich and I don't think Lewandowski will be hanging about too much either. Then, of course, you've got two top attackers as well. My successor will, of course, be able to take over a perfectly functioning team."
Jupp Heynckes has hinted that he may continue coaching elsewhere after guiding Bayern Munich to Champions League glory. The 68-year-old coach will be replaced at the die Roten helm by Pep Guardiola next season and was widely expected to bring an end to his managerial career. However, following the 2-1 defeat of Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, the trainer indicated that his time may not yet be up. # Football Football Football #

Champions League Final Preview This is Jupp Heynckes' third Champions League campaign as a coach. In all three seasons he has reached the final. In 1998 he won the trophy with Real Madrid and last year, he lost the final with Bayern Munich. Bayern have scored more headed goals in the Champions League than any other side this season. BVB have kept just three clean sheets in their last 12 European matches. Just one of the last five Champions League finals has gone over 2.5 goals. However, that final was also played at Wembley (Barcelona 3-1 Manchester United in 2011).

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes feels that if his team play their usual game they will be too good for Borussia Dortmund in Saturday's Champions League final at Wembley. - Delaney: Key personalities - Brewin: Domestic rivalry - Bennett: Battle royale Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Heynckes also pointed to how the relaxed last three weeks have actually helped Bayern hone the approach that has led to so many records being broken this season. He said: "We've got generations of players who are a little older, 29, 30. For those players I think it would be the crowning glory of their careers. Of course, for me as well, but I am perhaps a little more laid back about these things, with a little more detachment because I've experienced this once with Real Madrid. Of course for Munich it would be really important tomorrow. For me, it's another match. "Of course, you have a few scenarios in your head. I've always been a fair player, a fair coach and tried to speak and think positively. I know what m ...

WHY BAYERN HAVE BEEN THORN ON ALL FLESHES THAT EVEN SO GREATLLY ACCLAIMED BEST TEAM BECAME THE MOST RUBBISHED TEAM. A bushfire causes considerable damage; it rages on for as long as it wants. The world of football has found its bushfire this season. He is called Bayern München. The Germans have a habit of upsetting the odds. Bayern did this quite remarkably when they went down to Chelsea last season. Following that match, the odds of Bayern recovering from a season which saw them finish illness-inducing second three times were obviously low. They lost the Champions League final three times over. Bavaria was shaken. Changes came about in the summer but nobody knew quite what to expect. Currently, every expert, every fan and every opposition player including the likes of Bert Van Marwijk, Lionel Messi and Giorgio Chiellini have been awestruck. Jupp Heynckes himself is almost out of words now. Only Matthias Sammer is seemingly capable of keeping a lid on the situation. What has caused the phenomenon called ...
Bayern dare not think of surrendering Champions League to Dortmund German Champions have lost four of their last five European Cup Finals but head to Wembley believing they are the complete side There was a moment, as Thomas Müller sat on the top table at Wembley and looked far too relaxed for a man about to play one of the biggest games of his life, when the expression on his face conveyed the bemusement you might expect if he had just been asked to announce his pin number in the middle of a press conference. In fact, he had just been asked whether Bayern Munich had any weaknesses. "Weaknesses?" Müller replied. "Maybe that is a question for Dortmund. I don't think we have any weaknesses at all." Then he thought about it a little longer. He picked out the game at Borussia Mönchengladbach last weekend and he acknowledged that maybe they were not flawless, after all. Bayern, he pointed out, had conceded three goals in that game. What he did not mention was that Jupp Heynckes's team, true to form, had sco ...

Real Madrid are preparing to approach Jupp Heynckes, the Bayern Munich manager, about the possibility of replacing Jose Mourinho rather than go into retirement after Saturday's Champions League final.
IF REAL CAN'T SEAL ANCELOTTI DEAL Heynckes ready to step into the Bernabéu breach There is a determination upstairs at Real Madrid to ensure that any hitches in the move to bring in Carlo Ancelotti do not catch the club with its pants down. For this reason, the 'Los Blancos' higher-ups have canvassed Jupp Heynckes about coming back to Madrid in the event that the Italian is unable to agree a compensation-free deal to leave PSG. The Bayern Munich coach would be up to the task of exiting Bavaria, where he is due to be replaced by Pep Guardiola, for another stab at the Real Madrid job. Despite being 68, he isn't ready to call it a day yet. The remarkable season he has enjoyed in Munich, having secured the Bundesliga title and progressed to the Champions League and German Cup Finals, has convinced him that he still has something to offer. Enrique Reyes, Heynckes' agent, was at the Bernabéu on Friday morning. Although the official line trotted out was that he was there to pick up tickets for that evening's ' ...
Daring Dortmund interrupt Bayern's feast! LONDON — The all-German Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich on Saturday marks the culmination of an intensifying and increasingly bitter rivalry. In one corner stand Bayern; German football royalty, and the Bundesliga's dominant force of the last 40 years. In the other corner stand Dortmund, who have captured neutral hearts with their humble, wise-cracking coach, Jurgen Klopp, and a team committed to smothering their opponents with breathless attacking football. Dortmund upset the balance of power in Germany by winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 -- a run that included five straight wins over Bayern -- only for the Bavarians to storm back and win the league in record-breaking style this season. Although they finished a huge 25 points behind Bayern in the Bundesliga, Dortmund have demonstrated their pedigree in the Champions League, topping a group that contained Real Madrid, Manchester City and Ajax, and then ro ...
Forgotten Florent...Malouda's forced to go it alone in training as clock ticks down on Chelsea contract This time last year Florent Malouda was still celebrating Chelsea's Champions League triumph after coming on as a substitute against Bayern Munich. Yesterday the forgotten man of Chelsea's historic victory against Jupp Heynckes' side in the Allianz-Arena was isolated and alone at their Cobham training centre. There are echoes of Winston Bogarde, the £50,000 a week Dutch defender who was ordered to train with the youth in his final season at Chelsea in 2004. Bogarde commuted from his home in Amsterdam and reported each day at Chelsea's old Harlington training centre to fulfil his contractual obligations. Malouda's contract at Chelsea, which is worth £80,000 a week, does not end until June 30 and it is possible he may even be ordered to train until then. Chelsea's under-18 team, who lost the FA Youth Cup Final against Norwich, and the Under-21 Development Squad have packed up for the summer. It's the pe ...

If Bayern win the Champions League and the story is made into a film, I suggest John Slattery to play Jupp Heynckes
Bayern Munich rested half a dozen stars but still romped to a 6-1 win at home to 10-man Werder Bremen on Saturday to go 18 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga. Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes celebrated his 1000th Bundesliga game as a player and coach by making six changes from the team which won 3-1 at Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday. But they still extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches since their last defeat at home to Bayer Leverkusen at the end of October. Amongst the key changes, Germany striker Mario Gomez, who scored twice, came in for Mario Mandzukic, Dutch wing Arjen Robben, who opened the scoring, started for Thomas Mueller while Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri took Toni Kroos' place.
Bayern Munich's ruthless show of strength could take them all the way | Dominic Fifield Past failures in the Champions League provide motivation for a side who appear to be unstoppable and, after 3-1 win at Arsenal, could well be heading for a third final in four years As Arsenal's crestfallen captain, Thomas Vermaelen, came to terms with Tuesday night's defeat by Bayern Munich, he was asked, almost as an afterthought, whether he had just faced the eventual winner's of this year's Champions League. The Belgian had actually offered up the eternal optimist's mantra, that anything can happen in football, just seconds before as he considered the second leg to come, but the sigh that followed was more telling. "I don't know, but they're a good team," he said. "They are disciplined and work hard, that's the key, and are strong physically. They all know their jobs, and they did them perfectly." Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga's outstanding team of the moment, have made their impression. Jupp Heynckes's side had tr ...
Arjen Robben has conceded he has "mixed feelings" in the aftermath of Bayern Munich’s 3-1 win over Arsenal in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday. The winger remains out of favour under Jupp Heynckes this season, and goals from Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic will not have given the Allianz Arena coach reason to reconsider who starts in attack for the Bavarians. Does Robben still have what it takes to compete at the top level? Like if think so.
Uefa Champions League preview: Arsenal v Bayern Munich = Arsenal and Bayern Munich head into their Champions League round-of-16 first leg at Emirates Stadium in contrasting form. Arsene Wenger's men host the first leg in London on Tuesday, three days after suffering a shock 1-0 loss to Blackburn in the FA Cup. On the other hand, Bayern have stormed 15 points clear atop the Bundesliga and have won their five competitive matches this year. Jupp Heynckes' side are unbeaten in 18 outings and – despite being away from home – deserve favouritism. That leaves Arsenal in danger of finishing yet another season without silverware, with the last major trophy they lifted coming with their victory in the FA Cup in 2005. Their chances of progressing deep in Europe took a huge blow when they fnished second in Group B to Schalke, leaving them certain to face a massive task in the last 16. A rampant Bayern side will be hard to stop, especially with the firepower Heynckes has at his disposal in the attacking third. Cro ...
Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez is set to face Arsenal in Tuesday's Champions League clash, coach Jupp Heynckes
===Bayern are nightmare draw for Arsenal, claims Lehmann... but ex-Gunner tips Podolski to haunt former club=== Former Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann believes his old club could not have had a worse draw than to face last season’s beaten Champions League finalists. Writing in a column for the Sport Bild magazine, Lehmann said: 'For an English team it is the worst draw to play a German team directly after the winter break. 'In addition to that Bayern has not been really challenged for once yet in the second half of their season. The only stress they have is the one at the training sessions.' However, Lehmann, 43, believes Arsenal have the players to cause Bayern problems. He added: '(Bayern coach) Jupp Heynckes will warn his players of the speed that Arsenal still can play in the offensive game, especially Theo Walcott but also more and more Lukas Podolski can be very dangerous. 'Vice-versa, Arsenal will look to stop Bayern creating their good positioning game from which they can accelerate. ...
Brighton vs. Arsenal preview: "It is important to go for every trophy we can,” remarked a beaming Arsène Wenger at Friday’s press conference. “But of course the FA Cup is not the only one for us this season. We are in the Champions League too. “I know people have already kicked us out but we will surprise you! We play against Jupp Heynckes and now Pep Guardiola [but that does not mean] we are out! “There is a long way to go in the FA Cup and, of course, we will give our best. We will not neglect the game if that is what you want to know; we will be completely focused on winning the game but football is football remember. You have seen that with Bradford and Aston Villa this week. “I know why you ask me [about the period without a trophy] but don’t worry about that. We take this competition seriously. “You know, I have won the FA Cup four times because I always took the competition seriously.” The manager was responding in jovial terms to one of the ‘hardy perennials’ of his media wo ...
BREAKING NEWS... Bayern Munich hire Pep Guardiola. Guardiola, who twice guided Barcelona to the Champions League title, will replace current Munich boss Jupp Heynckes
Podolski is happy with life at Arsenal. He is also eagerly awaiting his homecoming match against him former club, Bayern Munich in the last-16 of the Uefa Champions League. Reflecting on his time at Emirates Stadium to date, he told Kicker: "I am in a new country, I am learning a new mentality. I am with a top club and pleased with how professional this club is run. Everything has changed for the better." "I have only been here for half a year, so it might be too early to take stock. I did understand people questioning that I never made it at Bayern and got relegated with Cologne. But I proved my qualities before the transfer. I was, and I am, convinced I will come out on top here." "I am looking forward to seeing Uli Hoeness, Jupp Heynckes, Franck Ribery, the colleagues from the national team and the many others who have been there during my time at Bayern."
UCL:- Jupp Heynckes believes Bayern Munich were full value for their 4-1 win over BATE Borisov on Wednesday night. Despite going down to 10 men early in the second-half, the Germans prevailed thanks to strikes from Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller, Xherdan Shaqiri and David Alaba, sealing both a commanding success and top spot in Group E. "I'm obviously very satisfied because the priority was to win and make sure of first place [in our group]," the coach told reporters. "The team were very determined and very alert. We conceded almost nothing in defence. Overall, it was an authoritative display. "All credit to my team because the Champions League is such a difficult competition - the runners-up are all very strong. That means it’s good we’re away from home in the first-leg." Gomez broke Bayern's duck at the Allianz Arena to further his tally to two goals since his comeback from injury five matches ago, and he feels he is regaining his sharpness in the penalty box. "I knew that I would struggle a bit after s ...
In 1998, current Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes was sacked by Real Madrid 8 DAYS after winning the Champions League for them
FC Bayern München's 3-1 defeat at FC BATE Borisov has arguably been the biggest upset in this season's Uefa Champions League. What was noticeable in that game, and at UEFA EURO 2012, is the importance of Bastian Schweinsteiger to both Bayern and Germany. The large transfer fee Bayern paid for Javi Martínez this summer came as a surprise to some but it was an important signing. It was necessary to protect a defence that was vulnerable at times last season and, along with the capture of forward Mario Mandžukić, added to the squad depth. One of Bayern's main problems last term was Schweinsteiger's absences through injury, and his form as he attempted to regain fitness was far from his peak. Luiz Gustavo and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, who deputised for him, are capable and solid players, but they failed to control games the way Schweinsteiger does. ©Getty Images Bastian Schweinsteiger is a key man for club and country As a result Bayern lacked his drive and passion. They subsequently brought in Martínez, at a ...
Ballon d'or Shortlist Five Premier League players have been named on the shortlist for the 2012 FIFA Ballon d'Or, including Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

Bayern Munich - Hoffenheim Preview: Bavarians look to bounce back from Champions League shock Jupp Heynckes' side saw their winning start to the season ended abruptly by BATE in Europe on Tuesday but can take heart from their 7-1 thrashing of Saturday's guests in March. Bayern suffered a humilating loss to BATE Borisov in midweek, and have been further taxed by the news that Franck Ribery is likely to miss this clash, while Arjen Robben has still not recovered from the problem that forced him to miss the trip to Minsk. Accordingly, Thomas Muller will continue on the right wing, with Xherdan Shaqiri slotting in on the left, with Toni Kroos playing as a No.10. However, long-term absentees David Alaba and Mario Gomez are still working their way back to fitness after their respective pre-season foot and ankle injuries, allowing Holger Badstuber to keep his place at left-back and Mario Mandzukic to start up front, despite Claudio Pizarro featuring against Werder Bremen. Injuries and suspension, meanwhile, have ...

Jupp Heynckes: Strong words were said at half-time. The victory did not come easy, though, as the Bavarians only clinched the three points late in the game, much to the disappointment of their trainer Jupp Heynckes. The retired striker revealed that he had a lot to say to his players at half-time, but made clear that he was delighted with the result. "We slowed things down too much in the first half. The players tested my patience a little too much, but at the end of the day, it was enough to beat a strong Bremen side," the coach told Bayern Munich's official website. "I had to use some strong language at half-time.” Luiz Gustavo and summer signing Mario Mandzukic found the net to give Bayern all three points. The Brazilian was pleased to get on the score sheet, but more encouraged by the win, stating that, "the opening goal helped us a lot, because we were in control again after that.” Bayern Munich next play BATE in the Champions League group stages on Tuesday afternoon.
Franck Ribery has admitted that he is not the best of friends with his Bayern Munich team-mate Arjen Robben. The France international and his Dutch counterpart had to be pulled apart after an angry exchange of words at half-time during the Bavarians' Champions League semi-final first-leg clash with Real Madrid in April, and the former Galatasaray winger was reportedly fined €50,000 for striking his colleague.Ribery made a point of fist-bumping Robben after netting the winner in the Bundesliga clash with Werder Bremen the following weekend, but the 29-year-old has confessed that while the pair continue to have the utmost respect for one another, they are by no means close. "We are not the best friends in the world," the former Marseille man admitted during an interview with Kicker. "But we respect each other. We are completely different." Bayern went onto defeat Madrid in spite of Ribery and Robben's dressing-room bust-up, but Jupp Heynckes' men were ultimately left heartbroken after being beaten by Chel ...

Bayern Munich vs. Chelsea: Scoring Key Duels We'll See in Champions League Final Jupp Heynckes vs. Roberto Di Matteo Alex Livesey/Getty Images Jupp Heynckes started managing in 1979. Roberto Di Matteo was nine years old at that time. Despite the differences in age and experience, this matchup isn't as one-sided as it may seem. Heynckes has won the Champions League before, with Real Madrid in 1998. However, despite his success in the '90s, Heynckes has not won a major trophy as a manager. Di Matteo is coming fresh off an FA Cup win, and he has Chelsea playing inspired football in the Champions League. The team needed a breath of fresh air, and he was the answer. He has done all the right things and turned the season around. Despite his lack of experience, I think Di Matteo will do what it takes to have Chelsea as prepared as possible.
Dutch winger Arjen Robben is on the verge of signing a new contract at Bayern Munich, despite recent reports linking him with a Premier League return to Manchester United . Robben had previously stated his dissatisfaction in the Bundesliga, after suffering criticism for his 'selfish' style of play and being dropped for three consecutive games by manager Jupp Heynckes. However, the former Chelsea forward has been in sensational form since returning to the team and looks set to be rewarded with a lucrative new contract. The 28-year-old has been the driving force behind Bayern's recent run of seven consecutive games as they close in on a Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup treble. Heynckes confirmed their star player is now set to stay at the club. "Internally this (contract extension) has been negotiated," said Heynckes. "I expect Arjen will put his signature to it in the coming period. "He is showing how important he is for Bayern. Not only the winning goal this weekend but the way he plays for the ...
