Bayern Munich have announced the appointment of Jupp Heynckes as coach until the end of the season.

The 72-year-old, who succeeds Carlo Ancelotti, has had three previous spells in charge of the Bundesliga giants, most recently when he led them to the league, cup and Champions League treble in 2013.

Bayern said in a statement that Heynckes would take over from Monday on a contract until June 30th 2018.

Italian Ancelotti took over last season but was fired after Bayern slipped to second place in the league, twice squandering two-goal leads in consecutive games. They also went down 3-0 at Paris St Germain in the Champions League.

Heynckes, who also led Real Madrid to the Champions League title and coached Benfica, Athletic Bilbao and a string of Bundesliga clubs, has not worked since 2013. He also coached Bayern from 1987-91 and briefly took over at the end of the 2008/9 season before becoming head coach between 2011 and 2013
