When Bayern Munich announced that Pep Guardiola would be taking over as the club's manager in the summer, the statement also said that Jupp Heynckes would be retiring at the end of the season. Well, this was news to Heynckes, and he let it be known that he would not decide on his future until after the season was completed.
The season has been one for the record books, with Bayern not only setting 25 records, but also winning the first treble in club history. Speculation has been rampant in recent weeks about Heynckes' future, but a lot of it has been centered on a return to the Bernabeu to take over Real Madrid after Jose Mourinho's departure.
Well, after Saturday's Pokal victory, Heynckes let everyone know when his announcement would be coming.
"I have decided that on Tuesday I will give a final press conference at Säbener Straße. I want to say goodbye to the Munich journalists, and then I will speak to my future as to whether I will continue or not."
However, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that he told Heynckes to basically name a job and he could have it at Bayern.
"I told him two weeks ago at the Bundesliga title celebration that he has a kind of ‘Carte Blanche' with us. If he can imagine it, we would like to keep him in some capacity at Bayern."
Is it possible that Heynckes will choose to remain in Munich for a couple of years in some sort of role, or do you think he rides off into the sunset after winning the first treble in Bayern Munich's history?
