  • Bayern Munich star injured; could miss Real Madrid clash

"He does it excellently, so for sure he is predestined to become coach of Bayern Munich".

Kovac was born and grew up in the working class Berlin suburb of Wedding, the son of a carpenter and a cleaner.

Kovac, who won the 2002/03 league and cup double as a Bayern player, was appointed Eintracht Frankfurt in March 2016.

The holders have been drawn against the newly crowned Bundesliga champions in a repeat of the last-four tie from five years ago, which Bayern won on penalties. And he worked with a lot of different personalities and nationalities at Frankfurt.

In a statement, UEFA stated: "Both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations contain clear provisions which strictly forbid any club to exert, or attempt to exert, any influence whatsoever over the players that another club may (or may not) field in a match".

The elder Kovac was also coach of the Croatian team with his brother as assistant manager.

Real is looking to become the first club to win three straight European Cup titles since Bayern's hat trick between 1974 and 1976.

After former Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel rejected an offer, announcing he will join a big European club overseas. You need time and patience to grow.

However, Frankfurt football director Fredi Bobic was not pleased that Bayern made the announced before their matches against Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke.

In German media, Kovac is regarded to be only second choice for Bayern.

However, the 26-year-old has actually improved since the exit of Ancelotti, putting in some fine performances for returning coach Jupp Heynckes. The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss was heavily criticized by the fans, critics and even the Bayern Munich president before eventually being fired by the club.

Kovac, a former Croatia midfielder and coach, played for Bayern between 2001 and 2003, winning the Club World Cup in 2001 and a domestic league and cup double in 2003. "In this phase which is extremely important for Eintracht Frankfurt". It's not enough for Bayern to simply win the league, or even the double or the treble - it has to be done in a certain style, too.

Tottenham Hotspur's Mauricio Pochettino, Lucien Favre, now at Nice, and RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuettl were also at times named as possible Bayern coaches.
