The majority of Liverpool fans celebrated after being drawn against Roma in the semi-finals
The 46-year-old Kovac, who played for Bayern from 2001-03, agreed to a three-year contract starting in July, the Bundesliga champions said Friday.
"Niko played at Bayern and knows those responsibilitiesas well as the structures and the DNA of the club very well". With Real looking vulnerable despite Ronaldo's extraordinary performances, Bayern has a chance to provide their coach with the flawless send-off - and even provide a little bit more romance.
Kovac will succeed Heynckes in Bavaria following another hugely impressive stint in charge from the 72-year-old.
"It's a good choice".
"We are very happy that we can have Niko Kovac as the new coach of FC Bayern".
"I have a good relationship with Fredi Bobic, and I'm sure we'll talk about it". "It's hard for me now that it's ending soon".
The Colombian is now on two-year loan at the Bundesliga club.
Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic was furious, accusing Bayern of being "not professional and disrespectful".
"It was a surprise for us in this phase", Bobic said.
Without doubt the biggest losers of the managerial appointment, Eintracht Frankfurt have lost a promising manager that had transformed the club in a two-year spell. We can achieve a lot in the next weeks. "We deliberately told Frankfurt as early as possible so they can get a successor".
'Kovac generally makes a very positive impression, ' Heynckes said.
"With Liverpool's energy on the counter attack, I thought they would have killed Madrid". "Not of Eintracht Frankfurt".
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 also has a German Cup semifinal match against Schalke next week.
"The coach keeps the team together brilliantly".
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.
Bayern have their eyes firmly on next week's German Cup semi-final against Leverkusen and the looming Champions League last-four clash with Real Madrid but their second-string team had no trouble against Gladbach.
