Heynckes ‘would be happy to return to Madrid’


Two times Champions League-winning boss Jupp Heynckes would be happy to return to the Madrid dugout, his agent has said.

The 68-year-old Bayern Munich manager will take charge of his last game at the weekend when his side take on Stuttgart in the German Cup final before Pep Guardiola takes the reigns at the Allianz Arena.

Following Bayern’s 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, he became only the fourth man in history to win the European Cup with two different clubs – he won it in 1998 when he was in charge at the Bernabeu.

Although Carlo Ancelotti remains the favourite to become the new boss after Jose Mourinho leave, there has been increasing speculation Heynckes could be the man to lead Los Blancos in their quest for La Decima.

Speaking to Radio Nacional, Enrique Reyes said his client would be happy to return to the Spanish capital.

He stated: “If Florentino calls us, we would probably accept the offer. At the moment he’s only retiring from the Bundesliga, although right now he’s only thinking about the German cup final.”
