Jupp Heynches would gladly accept an offer from Real Madrid for the managerial post according to his agent.
The 68-year-old has won nearly everything that the game has to offer as player and as a manager. The Bayern Munich manager, who will be in charge of his last game at the club during the German cup final against Stuttgart, will have a chance to win the treble, after leading the Bavarian giants to unprecedented success in the League and most recently in the Champions League (He has also won the DFL-Supercup).
Pep Guardiola will take over at Bayern Munich from next season and it has casted doubts on Heynckes’ future in the game. Earlier reports suggested that the German manager will retire from the profession, although it won’t be too hard for him to find a high profile job, given his highly impressive CV. But now his agent has confirmed that Heynckes has only retired from Bundesliga and will consider a return to his former club Real Madrid if the Spanish giants contact them with an offer.
“Jupp would be happy and willing to return to Real Madrid. If Florentino calls us, we would probably accept the offer. At the moment he’s only retiring from the Bundesliga, although right now he’s only thinking about the German cup final.” – Heynckes’ agent Enrique Reyes was quoted in press.
Jose Mourinho is set to leave Los Blancos after a disappointing season, where they failed both in the league and in Europe. Carlo Ancelotti was considered to be the favourite to take over the reign at the Spanish club, but PSG owner have reportedly rejected Ancelotti’s plea to let him leave the club. Ancelotti has previously had a one-year spell at the club, back in 1997, when he won the Champions League with Los Blancos, but was sacked from the job at the end of the season after Real Madrid finishing fourth in the domestic league.
Jupp Heynckes will certain be a fine recruitment and will probably be Real Madrid’s preferred choice if they fail to land Carlo Ancelotti. Interestingly, the last time Jupp Heynckes was appointed as the manager at Real Madrid after the Spanish club missed out on their then preferred choice Ottmar Hitzfeld.
