Bayern Munich have confirmed the re-appointment of Jupp Heynckes as interim manager until the end of the season.

The 72-year-old Heynckes led Bayern to the domestic league and Cup double and the UEFA Champions League title in 2013 but then made way for Spaniard Pep Guardiola.

"The board of FC Bayern Munchen AG and Jupp Heynckes have today reached an agreement until June 30, 2018".

Carlo Ancelotti said the Children in Jerusalem were excited with his visit; he was satisfied that the goal of building new relationships through football with the children of Jerusalem was actualized.

Heynckes first took charge of Bayern in 1987 before returning as caretaker manager in 2009.

Pistorius says the film is a "gross distortion of the findings of the court" and was not a "true reflection" of events. The state believes the sentence is too lenient and will push for a longer punishment.

He also stated: "There is a great bond of trust between FC Bayern and Jupp Heynckes". We are very grateful Jupp agreed to return as head coach.
