    Hoeness: Heynckes could stay on at Bayern

    Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness believes manager Jupp Heynckes may stick around with the club past this season.  Heynckes stepped in for his fourth stint with the Bavarians as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti in October with his contract running through the end of the season. There has been much discussion of who would replace the 72-year-old at the end of the campaign, with former Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann and even Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp being mentioned as candidates to take over.  But Hoeness believes there is a chance that the club could continue on with Heynckes, who has helped the club climb back to the top of the Bundesliga and qualify for last 16 of the Champions League despite the club getting off to a poor start in both competitions.  "I think that is possible, yes," the president said when asked if the manager might stay on after the club's annual general meetings on Friday.  The club has not lost under Heynches since he took over, winning nine straight in all competitions. Bayern hold a six-point lead over Schalke at the top of the Bundesliga and are three points back of PSG in Champions League Group B, with the clubs set to square off on the final matchday.  The French side's 3-0 beating of Bayern on October 27 sparked the sacking of Ancelotti.  "The night of Paris [3-0 Champions League loss to Paris Saint-Germain] made the club wake up," Hoeness said. "In this night, we set the course for what we have seen in the past six weeks. "Since then we had nine games and won all of them. With Jupp Heynckes the mood changed completely. All of us only hover now.  There is a new spirit." On Ancelotti's dismissal, Rummenigge maintains that their personal relationship is intact. "I want to thank Carlo Ancelotti," Rummenigge said. "He is a good person and a very good coach. The decision to sack him so early in the season was not easy, but professionally necessary. "When I told him the decision Carlo said, 'Okay, you are not my boss anymore, but you stay as my friend.' "That is something that is rare. I wish him and his team all the best."

    Bayern Munich to return to the United States in 2018

    Bayern Munich will be back in the United States next summer, with the club announcing that it will return to the USA for the first time since 2016 after the World Cup.  The short tour was announced by the CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge at the annual general meeting of the club on Friday, where he said the summer's international showcase would limit the amount of time the club can spend in the States.  "It will be a short trip with only two games as we don't want to overload our players after the World Cup", he said.  Bayern took part in the International Champions Cup in 2016, playing matches against A.C. Milan in Chicago, Inter in Charlotte and Real Madrid in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    Bayern confirm Douglas Costa will join Juventus permanently in €46m deal

    Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed Douglas Costa will join Juventus next summer in a deal that worth €46 million. The attacker was loaned to Juve in the close-season for €6m with the Serie A side holding an option to buy him for a further €40m. Juve 18/1 for Champions League title Costa is yet to break into the first-team at the Turin giants, having started just five of his 10 Serie A appearances. However, the reigning Italian champions will spend the full fee to take him on a permanent deal at the end of the campaign, as Bayern CEO Rummenigge confirmed at the club's annual general meeting. "Douglas Costa joined Juventus on loan last summer," he said. "At the same time he will definitively join Juventus next summer for €46m overall."  Bayern have taken a six-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga after reappointing Jupp Heynckes as Carlo Ancelotti's successor. Although the Italian was sacked early in the season, Rummenigge took time to thank him for his work at the club. "I want to thank Carlo Ancelotti. He is a good person and a very good coach," he said. "We became German champions together, but sometimes a successful coach and a successful club do not fit together. "The decision to sack him so early in the season was not easy, but professionally necessary. When I told him the decision, Carlo said: 'Okay, you are not my boss anymore, but you stay my friend.' That's something which is rare. I wish him and his team all the best."

    Bayern boss Heynckes slams 'insanity' of Champions League ticket prices

    Jupp Heynckes voiced his support of Bayern Munich fans after their midweek protest over ticket prices left the club facing UEFA disciplinary action. Travelling supporters at Bayern's 2-1 win over Anderlecht on Wednesday unfurled a banner lamenting the cost of €100 to attend the game, while some threw bundles of fake money onto the pitch. FCB 15/2 to win Champions League European football's governing body this week charged the Bundesliga champions for the "throwing of objects" and an "illicit banner", with the case to be dealt with on December 7. But speaking ahead of Saturday's top-flight trip to Borussia Monchengladbach, veteran boss Heynckes insisted fans were well within their rights to protest. "If tickets cost €100 it's insanity," he said. "[The fans] are right. In the end, you can't finance that. It's like you say, 'Please stay home, we don't want to have you here'. "It's not okay. That's the reason why the protest is justified. "I have solidarity with our fans and support the protest. I'm, in general, an advocate of moderate ticket prices. "We need the fans. Games without atmosphere are bad for football."

    Bayern confirm Robben absence with 'minor' calf strain

    Arjen Robben suffered a "minor" calf strain during Bayern Munich's Champions League win over Anderlecht on Wednesday and will miss Saturday's trip to Borussia Monchengladbach. Bayern flattered to deceive during their 2-1 triumph in Belgium, with Robben forced off just after half-time.  Bayern -1 v Gladbach 23/20 The Dutchman has been a regular this season, playing in 11 of Bayern's 12 Bundesliga matches, but he will be missing for what is sure to be a tricky encounter against the fourth-placed side. Both Robben and Thiago Alcantara - who Bayern fear suffered a "serious" thigh injury in the same match - have returned to Munich, whereas the rest of the squad travelled straight to Monchengladbach. Bayern have not offered any extra detail as to how long they expect Robben to be out for, but they will be hopeful he is back well before the Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on December 5.
