BREAKING: Bayern Munich sack coach Niko Kovac

Bayern Munich have parted company with manager Niko Kovac.

The decision follows Saturday’s 5-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt, which was the German champions’ second in 10 Bundesliga games this season.

The 48-year-old Croatian took over at the club from Jupp Heynckes in the summer of 2018 and won a league and cup double in his first season, but Bayern have struggled to hit their best form this campaign.

Kovac leaves with Bayern fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

Hansi Flick will take over until further notice and will manage the team against Olympiacos and Borussia Dortmund.
