German tactician Jupp Heynckes, who guided Bayern Munich to a historic treble last season, has wished good luck to former Barcelona head coach Pep Guardiola, who will take helm as the manager at the Allianz Arena this summer.
Heynckes, 68, has been involved with the game for around 50 years – both as a player and a manager.
He announced that intends to take a long holiday, following his departure from Bayern Munich, and then later confirmed that he does not intend to manage again.
Guardiola – who guided Barcelona to three La Liga titles, as well as two Champions League crowns, will be presented as the new Bavarians manager on 24th June at the Allianz Arena, and he will be in charge of the first pre-season training session with the Munich giants two days later.
"I wish Guardiola the best and may he have as much success as possible because his team has been mine. I would be happy if Bayern win the Bundesliga and the Champions League again", Heynckes told Kicker.
"Then I could congratulate my former [Real Madrid] players like Fernando Sanz, Fernando Redondo and Christian Karembeu, who called to congratulate me", he added.
Heynckes guided Los Blancos to a Champions League title in the 1997/98 season. He has also guided the Bavarians to the crown last term.
