Football: Bayern's Heynckes to reveal plans on Tuesday

BERLIN (AFP) - Bayern Munich's treble-winning coach Jupp Heynckes has said he will reveal his future plans on Tuesday as the 68-year-old ended his two-year tenure on Saturday by lifting the German Cup.

Having steered Bayern to their fifth European Cup triumph at Wembley and won the Bundesliga in record time, Heynckes completed the set on Saturday with the Bavarians' 16th German Cup triumph.

It is the first time a German team has won the treble and Heynckes will walk away having coached the most successful Bayern team of all time.

Ex-Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola will take charge on June 26 and Heynckes has said he will hold a press conference in Munich to discuss his future.

"I have decided to give a press conference on Tuesday, then I'll talk about my future," Heynckes told German Sky after Bayern's 3-2 win over Stuttgart in Saturday's German Cup final in Berlin.

Bayern claimed their 45th win from 53 games in all competitions, dropping just 11 league points and lost only three matches all season.

Heynckes has insisted he is too old to coach abroad and said after winning everything with Bayern Munich that other Bundesliga teams hold no interest for him.

But he has been linked with Real Madrid, who he coached to the 1998 Champions League title, in place of the departing Jose Mourinho.
