Heynckes: I could quit football

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes, who is leaving the club in the summer to make way for Pep Guardiola, has hinted that he could walk away from football for good.

Speaking after his side had beaten Barcelona 3-0 at the Camp Nou to seal a stunning 7-0 Champions League semi-final aggregate win, the 67-year-old said the time could be right to say goodbye to the sport.

Speaking to SID, he explained: “I will turn 68 on May 8. That makes it 50 years in football as player or coach.

“There comes a time when you think: ‘That is enough.’”

Recently, Heynckes has been linked with a return to La Liga, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona reported to be interested in him.

But with the Bundesliga title already sealed and the domestic cup final against Stuttgart also to come, he could end his career on a high by becoming the first German coach to win the treble.

“Madrid have not been in contact with me,” he told Spanish newspaper Marca.

And he praised his Bayern side for their performance at the Camp Nou, saying: “This team really pulls together. We get through outstanding work together, and we're tremendously hungry for success.

“We're playing extremely high-speed football, we’re very well organised, we’re tactically smart, we close down the space, and our transitions are functioning perfectly this season. We're a real team, from the front to the back.”
