The 46-year-old Croat takes over from 72-year-old Heynckes, who came out of retirement in October after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked to steer Bayern to their sixth consecutive league title, and the semi-finals of both the German Cup and the Champions League.

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic was not willing to ascribe such values to Bayern Munich at a press conference on Thursday following the announcement.

In announcing Kovac's hiring earlier in the day, Salihamidzic said Bayern were "very happy that we could secure Niko Kovac's services".

Heynckes, who led Bayern to the 2013 title with a 2-1 final victory over Borussia Dortmund, knows that the final in Kiev on May 26 would be the last match of his fourth stint in charge.

After the end of his playing career Kovac was briefly an assistant coach in Austria.

Liverpool fans would've rejoiced when they drew Roma and I do think that if they get past the Italians, they have the tools to hurt Madrid or Bayern in a one-off game.

"He does it excellently, so for sure he is predestined to become coach of Bayern Munich". "It's hard for me now that it's ending soon".

Defending champions Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich in the semi-finals of the Champions League while Liverpool play AS Roma in a repeat of the 1984 final. "But where one door closes, another opens".

"We will have news in the next days", Salihamidzic said. In games like this, the team performance is important. "That information made it to the outside - definitely not out of Frankfurt - is very annoying, unprofessional and lacking in respect".

"If anybody think this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona", he said.

Kovac will need to adjust to instructing established stars at Bayern, rather than young players of promise still eager to learn, and he will be expected to maintain the club's high standards.

David Alaba could return after a back injury, while Javi Martinez, Rafinha, Robert Lewandowski and James Rodriguez are available after suffering minor injuries against Sevilla.
