Heynckes set to succeed Ancelotti at crisis-hit Bayern

Veteran German coach Jupp Heynckes confirmed reports yesterday that he is considering a return to Bayern Munich following Carlo Ancelotti's dismissal.

The 72-year-old Heynckes led Bayern to the domestic league and Cup double and the Champions League title in 2013, but then had to make way for Spaniard Pep Guardiola.

The club could not be immediately reached for a comment.

"Peter Hermann has left his post as assistant coach at Bundesliga 2 leaders Fortuna Düsseldorf, while Hermann Gerland, current sporting head of the FC Bayern Campus, will step back from his work with the youth setup to assist the first team until the end of the season".

A stinging 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League led the club to sack Ancelotti last week.

"I would not have returned to any other club in the world, but Bayern Munich is close to my heart", said Heynckes, vowing to transform the team back into a "successful" squad.

Two German coaches believed to be in the running to manage Bayern - Nagelsmann and former Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel - have no previous experience with the Bavarian giants.

Bayern are third in the Bundesliga having lost to Hoffenheim a few weeks ago.

"Pleased to see my former coach back at @FCBayern", Schweinsteiger tweeted.

Despite his friendly grandfather-like appearance, Heynckes is a tough disciplinarian who once fined Schweinsteiger and fellow Germany star Toni Kroos for wearing the wrong colour socks to training.

As the contract as just until the end of the season, presumably Bayern will be laying the groundwork for a more long-term successor.

Heynckes has not had a job in football since guiding Bayern to a historic treble in 2013, but confessed he simply could not turn the club down.
