Heynckes plays down praise

Jupp Heynckes feels he does not merit acclaim for his achievements this term despite leading Bayern Munich to domestic and European success.

Bayern have already clinched the Bundesliga title going into their derby clash with struggling Augsburg on Saturday and face Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on May 25.
Heynckes is set to be replaced by former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola in the off-season, but has still received praise from Bayern chief-executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who labelled the 68-year-old as their very own ‘special one’.
However, Heynckes does not believe he has earned such plaudits and was keen to stress his view that there are other non-sporting feats more deserving of attention.
“Other people are doing more special things than me,” he said.

“Carers, firefighters, ambulance workers, people who sacrifice themselves and soldiers in Afghanistan who have lost their lives or been injured in physically or mentally – these are special people.

“Sure, we have had a special season, which is very satisfying, but I have a more sophisticated view on life.”

Bayern can become the first German side to complete a league, cup and UEFA Champions League treble if they overcome Dortmund at Wembley and beat Stuttgart in the DFB Pokal at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on June 1st.
