Jupp Heynckes has confirmed his retirement after insisting he will not coach another club following his departure from Bayern Munich.
The 68-year-old finishes his career on a high after a historic season with Bayern, in which they won a treble of the Bundesliga title, the UEFA Champions League and the DFB-Pokal.
“I’m somewhat against finality – but I can say it for sure, I will not a coach a team again. I’ve had a dignified exit from football,” he told Der Spiegal.
“It’s the right decision,” the ex-Real Madrid boss added.
“You have to take the opportunity. If they had not found a replacement for me, we might have talked again but the situation now is the best for me. Guardiola will get a perfect working team.”
