After agreeing to become the new Bayern Munich head coach last week following Carlo Ancelotti’s dismissal, Jupp Heynckes was unveiled in front of the media on Monday.
Here are the key points.
Uli Hoeneß on Jupp Heynckes: “I’m happy one of my best friends is back at FC Bayern.”
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “The passion is still burning inside him. Jupp is the ideal coach for the situation we’re in. He’s the man who knows what needs doing, how to lead this team and get them back on track.”
Jupp Heynckes on his return: “In 2013 I made the decision not to carry on as a coach. I’d made my mind up. I’m looking forward to the challenge. I know how to deal with the players, how I have to work with them and I’m confident we can get back to winning ways.”
“Our team has potential and quality. I need to tease that out of the players and get them back up to speed. The important thing is for the players to rediscover confidence in their own ability.”
“The challenge attracts me and I’m really happy about it. This is not about me. It’s primarily about FC Bayern.”
