Jupp Heynckes has all but ruled out a return to coaching. The 68-year-old declared recently that he was going to take a one-year break from the game once his contract at Bayern Munich, with whom he won the treble last season, expires at the end of the month.
– Jupp Heynckes speaking to Germany's Spiegel magazine.
I don't really like finality, but I can assure you that I do not intend to coach again.
I had a worthy send-off.
– former West Germany international Gunter Netzer speaking to the official Bundesliga website
It's a massive piece of good fortune for the Bundesliga that a coach like Guardiola will soon be arriving.
He won't only have a huge say in the direction of Bayern but of the entire league. I'm sure of that.
I think we need some new ideas and some new impetus in Germany and that can only come through foreign coaches that favour a different style of play and have a different footballing philosophy.
Obviously, not every team is going to be able to play football in the image of Guardiola, but he will definitely provide a fresh impetus to the league.
– Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm
The most beautiful thing for me is that I am convinced that these three titles are not the end, but rather the beginning," he said.
We have an exceptional squad, we have top characters in the team and an excellent mentality.
And almost every single one of us has a long-term contract. The team is going to remain intact and even get stronger.
We are in an excellent financial position and now we have Pep Guardiola, a world-class coach, arriving.
Bayern Munich have extended the contracts of Franck Ribery and Daniel van Buyten until 2017 and 2014 respectively, the European champions announced.
Ribery, who moved to Bayern from Marseille in 2007, has penned a two-year extension and could now complete a decade of service with the club.
