Croatian Niko Kovac will take over as Bayern Munich coach next season, succeeding Jupp Heynckes who is leaving at the end of the season, the German champions said on Friday.

However, Hoeness reacted angrily to Bobic's comments in speaking to Sky Deutschland following Bayern's 5-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

They've managed to win their 28 and 6 in a row Bundesliga title with five games in hand, allowing the club to focus on the Champions League.

Kovac's brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant. "We exploited a hole he made in the contract with Kovac, which is very professional", Hoeness said, hinting at the reported €2.2 million ($2.7 million) release clause in Kovac's Frankfurt contract".

However, veteran coach Jupp Heynckes, who came out of retirement to lead Bayern, will not extend his stay, hence the need for the club to find a replacement.

A video of the girl's father Pappu Singh prior to his death had gone viral and was also aired by several news channels. Subsequently, the victim's father was booked by the police under the Arms Act on April 3 and put in jail on April 5.

Frankfurt have been critical of Bayern's "unprofessional" approach for Kovac - director of football Fredi Bobic slamming the German powerhouse.

The former Real Madrid coach went on to say "I hope Ronaldo does not have a good day".

Several high-profile coaches, including Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, were linked with the Bayern job after Heynckes reportedly rejected the offer of a contract extension.

"We were obviously surprised especially in this phase (of the season) we are in which is extremely important for us", Bobic said.

"Thomas Tuchel told us that he's signed with another club. Not of Eintracht Frankfurt". "They did their thing and thought of themselves".

According to the paper, Ronaldo was far from happy with the performances of the players. "It's a shame it ends like this". Real Madrid went to the game with an attacking mentality and didn't sit back even after conceding goals.

Frankfurt now lie in 6th place in the Bundesliga, five points away from Champions League qualification, with four games to go.

Kovac was appointed at Eintracht in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation play-off that season before guiding them to a respectable 11th-place finish in 2017.

Hoeness was particularly angered by suggestions that Bayern intentionally leaked the news of Kovac's appointment to the press. I informed the team this morning. However, the performance at the BayArena did not back up Kovac's words as Frankfurt's Champions League hopes suffered a heavy blow.

How will Bayern line up with Kovac at the helm?
