“Madrid the model to follow”

Newly appointed Bayern Munich Coach Jupp Heynckes insists Real Madrid ‘are the model to follow’ for top European clubs.

The German has replaced the sacked Carlo Ancelotti until the end of the season at the Allianz Arena but also stated this would be his final role in management.

“I have been extremely impressed by Real Madrid, who are the model to follow,” Heynckes told his press conference, as quoted by Diario AS.

“I am replacing (Ancelootti) a fantastic Coach and a lovely man who is widely admired for his achievements in the game.

“My aim is to maintain the success with a very clear plan and I am convinced we will improve upon our recent performances.

“There are player such as Muller who aren’t reaching their potential and this team needs to showcase their talent.

“This is not my return to coaching, I know when my contract will be over and there will be nothing after this.”
