Niko Kovac’s role at Bayern Munich is not in doubt as he has been a success this season, says executive board chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Former Eintracht Frankfurt coach Kovac took over at Bayern at the start of the campaign and, after a slow start, held off Borussia Dortmund to clinch the Bundesliga title on the final day.
There was disappointment in a Champions League last-16 defeat to Liverpool, but Bayern are also in the DFB-Pokal final against RB Leipzig on Saturday.
And despite speculation that Kovac is under pressure at the Allianz Arena, Rummenigge is confident there will be no change in the dugout regardless of this weekend’s result.
“It would be crazy to make the future dependent on one game,” said Rummenigge, speaking at the Bild 100 Sport summit on Friday.
