Heynckes hints at football future

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has hinted this season may not end his career in football after watching his side defeat Bayern Leverkusen 2-1 in the Bundesliga.

Heynckes has overseen a golden period for Bayern with the side building a massive 20 point lead in the league and through to a semi-final show-down with Juventus in the Champions League.

The Bavarian giants are also through to the semi-finals of the German Cup.

But with former Barcelona maestro Pep Guardiola moving into the Bayern hot seat next season, many pundits expected the 67-year-old Heynckes to retire from the sport.

However, the former Real Madrid boss is keeping his cards close to his chest and has not ruled out remaining in the game in some form next season.

"When I think of (former Chancellor of Germany) Konrad Adenauer assuming office at 71, and now our new Pope who is 76, then I think can still do something at 68," Heynckes told Liga Total.

"I would not consider that directorial role. I am only going to reveal my future after the end of this season."

Heynckes though was far more up front with his feelings towards Bayern's latest victory, the manager believing the squad responded well to the 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the Champions League.

"This win has made me happier than many others," he added. "We are very satisfied. Today was very difficult after the Champions League game on Wednesday. We played a good game in the first-half, and were strongly driven.

"The legs were heavy after the break, but the team was ultimately rewarded."
