Bayern maul Monchengladbach 5-1

The former Croatian international has been named as the successor to Jupp Heynckes

Bobic blasted Bayern on Friday for the timing of its announcement that Frankfurt coach Kovac would be switching to Bayern next season, and for not getting in touch beforehand.

They are also through to the Champions League last four where they will face Real Madrid and take on Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup semi-final next week. The thrashing left Frankfurt sixth, five points from fourth-placed Leverkusen - and a Champions League place - with four games left.

'Kovac generally makes a very positive impression, ' Heynckes said.

The 46-year-old, who had a long playing career in the Bundesliga, was at Bayern from 2001-03.

The 23-year-old striker has won an impressive 117 aerial duels for Frankfurt so far this season, with a success rate of 47%.

Both clubs last week denied Kovac was on his way to Munich.

However, the performance at the BayArena did not back up Kovac's words as Frankfurt's Champions League hopes suffered a heavy blow.


"The way Bayern have acted is disrespectful as we are still at a decisive stage of the season", Bobic stressed, adding the news about the Kovac deal was not leaked by Frankfurt.

"We deliberately didn't say anything about it yesterday because we found the comments of Fredi Bobic to be quite outrageous", he said. In 2013 as he was set to retire for the first time, Bayern announced Pep Guardiola before the season was over and Heynckes bowed out in the best way possible - with a treble.

It his highly expected Unai Emery will stand down or be sacked at the end of the season following another disappointing Champions League campaign, and Tuchel had been heavily tipped for the job.

Frankfurt now lie in 6th place in the Bundesliga, five points away from Champions League qualification, with four games to go.

Kovac will need to adjust to instructing established stars at Bayern, rather than young players of promise still eager to learn, and he will be expected to maintain the club's high standards.

"I try to be an option for every coach, whether it's in midfield or further forward", James told bundesliga.com following Bayern's 5-1 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday.
