Bayern Munich send Champions League warning to Real Madrid

Bobic blasted Bayern on Friday for the timing of its announcement that Frankfurt coach Kovac would be switching to Bayern next season, and for not getting in touch beforehand.

Reports suggesting the Frankfurt manager had been chosen as Jupp Heynckes' successor began to circulate on Thursday, prompting Bobic to criticise the "unprofessional" nature of Bayern's conduct.

"The procedure, I think, is extremely questionable, as I said before".

"Secondly, we thought for a long time about when we should tell the Frankfurters".

Bayern had appointed Kovac as he is familiar with the Bavarian side, having played for them before.

They will exchange places with fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen if they beat them tonight.

The hegemony of German football, Bayern did not let Sevilla in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"Niko was a Bayern player, he knows the people in charge as well as the structure and the club's DNA".

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness hit back at criticism from Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic over the signing of Niko Kovac as coach by labeling his comments "quite outrageous".

The 25-year-old forward charged through in the 71st minute to put Leverkusen 2-1 in front after Julian Brandt had fired the hosts ahead in the 20th only for Marco Fabian to draw Frankfurt level three minutes later.

The decision, however, in favour of Kovac marks a turn for success-driven Bayern, who had previously opted for big-name coaches including Champions League winners Heynckes, Louis van Gaal and Pep Guardiola. Kovac will also bring his 44-year-old brother Robert Kovac from Frankfurt as assistant coach.
