Bayern Munich have confirmed that Niko Kovac will take over as the club's new manager in July.

"We're very delighted we've secured the services of Niko Kovač as new FC Bayern head coach", said sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić. "We were knocked out by them last year and we want to do better this year", Salihamidzic said.

Frankfurt had learned the day before that its coach, Niko Kovac, is leaving for Bayern Munich next season. "Niko was a player at Bayern, he knows the characters and the structures and the DNA of the club very well. His brother Robert Kovač (44) will join Niko Kovač, who is now Eintracht Frankfurt head coach, as assistant".

The 46-year-old Kovac took over at the "Eagles" in March 2016 and led the club out of the Bundesliga doldrums.

Danny Murphy wishes Real Madrid had drawn Liverpool in the last four though.

Both teams have played 24 matches against each other and Los Blancos have a superior result with nine wins, a draw, and two losses. This season, only Bayern and Schalke have better defensive records than Eintracht while only Hoffenheim have received more yellow cards.

Jupp Heynckes is anticipating a "gigantic fixture" when Bayern Munich face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.

Kovac captained Croatia towards the end of his playing career and his brother took over the armband when Niko retired from global football.

After guiding them to an 11th place finish a season ago, they sit just two points behind Bayer Leverkusen for the final Champions League spot.

"They will most likely make the Champions League this season, or if not at least qualify for Europe".

During Frankfurt's press conference ahead of their match against Bayern Leverkusen, Kovac said "it has nothing to do with Fredi [Bobic] or me that things were made public the way it happened".

Spanish outlet Don Balon, known for their bold claims, say the forward has warned Ronaldo that one Bayern star in particular is desperate to beat Los Blancos. The siblings played together at global level, as well as at Bayern.

Reports broken by Bild in Germany suggested Bayern have selected Kovac to be the replacement for Jupp Heynckes when the veteran leaves the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season.

He turned out to be a bargain buy, purchased by Liverpool for £38 million ($54 million) a month before Brazil's Neymar went for 222 million euros ($273 million) to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.
