FC Bayern Munich directors Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Uli Hoeneß and Karl Hopfner have this morning personally informed Jürgen Klinsmann of the board’s decision to relieve him of his duties as head coach with immediate effect. This also applies to assistant coaches Martin Vasquez and Nick Theslof.
In the light of recent results, the board is concerned that the club may not achieve its minimum targets for the season, and has accordingly resolved to take appropriate action.
The board would like to thank Jürgen Klinsmann and his coaching team for their work at the club, and wishes them the very best for the future.
The FC Bayern Munich board of directors has appointed Jupp Heynckes as head coach and Hermann Gerland as his assistant, to take charge of the first team until the end of the season.
Jupp Heynckes and Hermann Gerland will supervise first-team training from tomorrow, Tuesday 27 April.
