Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has vehemently ruled out staying beyond next summer at the club.
Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness said this week that he could be persuaded Juup Heynckes extend his stay.
Heynckes, 72, was appointed interim coach until the end of the season in October — his fourth spell in charge of the German giants. Asked if Heynckes could stay on at the end of the season, Hoeness said on Friday: “I believe it is possible, yes — nothing is ruled out.”
However, responding to his close friend’s comments after Bayern’s 2-1 defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach, Heynckes said: “I don’t know why Uli said what he said.
“We have an extremely clear agreement and that runs until June 30, 2018, and that is the way it is staying. I don’t want to comment on this every week. That’s pretty clear.”
Bayern slipped to their first defeat under Heynckes since he oversaw a loss to Bayer Leverkusen in December 2012 in their Treble-winning season — a run of 31 Bundesliga games.
Gladbach took control with two goals in a five-minute spell just before half-time. Thorgan Hazard put the home side ahead from the penalty spot on 39 minutes, before Matthias Ginter doubled the lead from close range a minute before the break. Arturo Vidal reduced the arrears with under 20 minutes remaining but it proved a mere consolation.
