Mesut Ozil Confirms Arsenal Contract Extension

Jupp Heynckes Has Reunited Bayern Munich, Claims Thomas Müller

Thomas Müller has praised Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes for reuniting the team once again after a difficult start to the season. The club had a difficult start to the campaign under Carlo Ancelotti, who was unable to keep his job despite winning the league title last season. In order to go through the end of the campaign, Bayern decided to go to veteran Jupp Heynckes in order to save the season. Heynckes has been in retirement since managing to win the treble with Barcelona a couple of years ago. However, he has taken like a duck to the water since coming back to the Allianz Arena.

A strong set of results from Bayern Munich coupled with teams like RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund dropping points over the last couple of months has led to Bayern establishing a strong lead in the Bundesliga table. Even though the team may not have the same kind of dominance in the Champions League, there are signs of change coming up. One of the key aspects of the team has been the return of Thomas Müller, who appeared to be frozen out by Ancelotti. There is little wonder that Müller, who had his best performances under Heynckes, is once again the key player at the club. He has spoken about the dominance in recent weeks and says that Heynckes’ presence is a key part.

Heynckes refuses to rule out Bayern Munich

Jupp Heynckes has refused to rule out the possibility of extending his Bayern Munich stay beyond next summer. The 72-year-old joined the Bavarian giants in an interim role earlier this month after Carlo Ancelotti was dismissed from the managerial post. The veteran won a treble during his previous final year with Bayern in the 2012/13 season, and he has since taken up retirement - only to make a surprise comeback.

Prior to Bayern's game at Hamburg, the veteran was posed a question on his future at the club, to which he replied: "I knew that I would get asked this but it's too early for such a question. As everyone who knows me knows when I say, I will take over on an interim basis until next summer, this is the case. Because it's a huge task. Normally it wouldn't be possible for a trainer of my age, but you are only as old as you feel. I have always kept myself fit and coped well with the pressure, both as a player and as a coach. Football has always been fun."

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer out until January

Bayern Munich will be without the services of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer until January after he underwent a surgery on his broken left foot.


The German international sustained an injury to the same foot in April, and he has a recurrence in training on Monday. As a result, the World Cup winner is expected to be sidelined until the turn of the year, and this will see Bayern utilise the services of backup goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

Club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed the news via BBC Sport, he said: "Manuel Neuer has sustained another injury and we're incredibly sorry for him.The operation went perfectly, which is the most important thing for now. We are now looking to the future. Manuel will be back to his previous best and available in January."

Crucial weeks for Bayern coming up

Jupp Heynckes has made the perfect start to his fourth spell in charge of Bayern Munich, winning all three games without conceding a goal. But with huge matches coming up in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League, the veteran manager is about to find out a lot more about his current squad.

Because let’s face it, this is the same group of players that started the season sluggishly under Carlo Ancelotti. He may have made a good start, but Heynckes’ selection headaches could intensify in the coming weeks, particularly when you consider who his side will up against.

Bayern Munich sack Carlo Ancelotti

Bayern Munich have reportedly parted ways with manager Carlo Ancelotti following Wednesday night's 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.


The Italian head coach replaced Pep Guardiola at the helm last season and guided them to the Bundesliga title in his first season in-charge.

However, the new campaign brought question marks over his future after a poor pre-season where they struggled to beat the likes of Inter Milan, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. Bayern are currently three points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, and the 3-0 thumping at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain was the last straw for the former Champions League winner.
