Heynckes hints at retirement

Created on 02 May., 2013 8:38 PM GMT

Jupp Heynckes has suggested he may retire from football management when he leaves Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Bayern have been in scintillating form this season and have already wrapped up the Bundesliga title as well as reaching the UEFA Champions League final following a 7-0 aggregate demolition of Barcelona.
But Heynckes will leave his position at the end of the season with Pep Guardiola due to take over the role.
"First of all, I know what I'm doing after the UEFA Champions League final," said Heynckes.
"I will be 68 this month on May 9. That means it's been 50 years in football - 50 years as both a player and as a manager so maybe it's been enough."
However, Heynckes says that he will not give a definitive answer on his future plans until after Bayern's clash with Dortmund at Wembley and said he will not be influenced by media speculation.
"Obviously, my team is at a top-class level. We are world class," he added.
"That's why you journalists speculate about my future, about what I'll do after the final. But that's not going to have any impact on whatever decision I'll make after June 1."
