This is behind Heynckes’ roll backwards
Istanbul – Bavaria boss Rummenigge gives the trainer debate about a stay of Jupp Heyncke’s new food. SPORT1 explains how to evaluate the most recent statements.
Almost no day passes at present without new announcements to the coach question with the FC Bavaria.
President Uli Hoeneß insulted the media on Saturday.
But the fact is: Hoeneß has been trying publicly for weeks to persuade Jupp Heynckes to continue with his “charm offensive”.
After the head coach himself had made it clear on several occasions that he would stand by his word and come to an end in the summer, it suddenly sounded quite different on Friday before the match against Hamburger SV:”I never said I would stop,”said the 72-year-old.
Which is not quite correct, because Heynckes had emphasized several times since he took office that he would only do the job until the end of the season due to his age and the enormous strain.
So it’s no wonder that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge spoke of a “backward roll” at Besiktas Istanbul on Tuesday before the flight to the Champions League game.
SPORT1 explains how to evaluate the most recent statements.
The CEO presented the situation at Munich Airport as if the FCB could once again have justified hopes for a future with the declared desirable candidate.
“Now we’re waiting in peace. We don’t have any stress at all. We are happy with the way we’re standing right now in the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB Cup,”he said.
“We’ll try to take what we can with Jupp Heynckes and then we’ll be able to see.”
Otherwise, the Bayern leadership would no longer comment on the question of coaches in order to avoid destroying the delicate little plant of hope:”We don’t want to talk about Jupp Heynckes any more. It bothers him. Let’s not say anything.”
The successful coach did not want to say anything concrete about his future at the press conference before the game against Besiktas.
“I don’t tend to interpret the statements of Rummenigge and Hoeneß,”he said to SPORT1 demand.
“I know what I want and what I’m doing. They must wait until the decision is announced.”
He then clarified his words again. He does not see his statement as a backward role, Heynckes said at Sky:”On the contrary. I have my opinion and my point of view. That’s all I want to say.”
If Heynckes should actually continue, this would be a small sensation. His statements, such as his recent farewell to Freiburg coach Christian Streich and his references to his age and the lack of quality of life, were too clear.
In the SPORT1 interview a week ago, captain Thomas Müller did not contradict the reports either, after Heynckes is said to have informed the team about his departure.
“It’s what he announced. When he came in, there was never more to talk about. It will be so. We must all be grateful to him for taking over the job,”explained Müller.
However, the FCB coach probably wants to announce the decision about his final career end himself, not to let himself be driven by the media and also to focus more on the fight for the triple.
It is also conceivable to make arrangements with the club bosses to provide enough smoke through these and other smoke candles so that Bavaria can make the new coach’s commitment perfect relatively unnoticed. In this context Rummenigge’s statement from Tuesday fits in with his statement that he was “not surprised”by Heyncke’s role backwards.
Before the trainer’s supposed U-turn, it was assumed that the next man would be announced in the next three to four weeks. Even now, however, insiders would not be surprised to hear such a report.
The exciting question remains only whether the favourite Thomas Tuchel, who has been praised by Heynckes in the highest tones, will actually win the race. Despite Hoeneß’s alleged reservations, the ex-Dortmund has all the required professional qualities, including German.
Therefore, it remains the most likely variant that FC Bayern will be able to play from the 8th minute on. July by a much younger head coach than is currently being looked after.
