Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness has revealed newly-appointed head coach Niko Kovac was only their third choice after being turned down by Thomas Tuchel and current boss Jupp Heynckes.

Bobic blasted Bayern on Friday for the timing of its announcement that Frankfurt coach Kovac would be switching to Bayern next season, and for not getting in touch beforehand. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will meet in the Champions League semi-final and Colombia worldwide James Rodríguez is on loan at Bayern from the LaLiga side.

'Kovac generally makes a very positive impression, ' Heynckes said.

The appointment continues a remarkable upward trend for 46-year-old Kovac, who will take over on July 1, after an impressive spell in Frankfurt - his maiden job in club management.

The Bayern coach said it is not only a challenge for Bayern but Real as well.

'He told us that he had already decided.

Warriors' Curry progressing, will pick up rehab efforts
But the Warriors made it clear early on - unless the back of the jersey displayed the name "Aldridge", they weren't concerned. Kerr went with his best defensive unit. "I thought we were very prepared physically and mentally, but I was mistaken.

But, there is the risk that their final weeks of the season could see a downturn in form as Kovac's mind begins to shift towards Bayern - who Frankfurt could go up against in the DFB-Pokal final should they win their respective semi-finals.

Kovac is now in charge of fellow Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt but has been announced to replace Jupp Heynckes when the latter retires at the end of the current campaign. Champions League qualification is possible this season after another stellar campaign. "Sure they have great players, but so do we", Heynckes said.

He then took over Croatia in 2013 for two years before signing with relegation-threatened Eintracht Frankfurt in 2016 and turning them into Champions League contenders this season.

The Bavarian powerhouse has won a record six straight Bundesliga titles and may yet secure a league, German Cup and Champions League treble in Heynckes' last season. "The players must know each other and respect each other".

He has seven goals in his last nine Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich, but Germany worldwide Sandro Wagner knows there is only one king in Munich, and the rest of the world, for that matter.

Kovac, like James, was a serial victor as a player.
