Heynckes offers predecessor Ancelotti credit for Bayern title

Picking the Best Potential Bayern Munich Lineup to Face FC Augsburg on Saturday

Bayern Munich were sitting five points behind a high flying Borussia Dortmund side when there was a managerial change at the Allianz Arena, and Heynckes has insisted that Ancelotti played his part in their success this season.

Niklas Sule kicked off proceedings with an own-goal on 18 minutes before Corentin Tolisso (32'), James Rodriguez (38'), Arjen Robben (62') and Sandro Wagner (87') all weighed in with goals. Bayern did it with five rounds to spare, allowing the team to focus on the Champions League and German Cup for the rest of the season.

Speaking to reporters after the match, Heynckes said: "I want to greet Carlo Ancelotti in Italy".

Heynckes took over from Ancelotti after the Italian was sacked at the end of September following a 3-0 Champions League defeat at Paris St Germain.

Ancelotti responded on his Twitter account congratulating his former team as well as "friend" Heynckes after their latest title win, with the club 20 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

He told the club's official website: "The coach is responsible for the big picture, but first and foremost the players are the protagonists".

Nevertheless, he singled out Ancelotti for praise in Bayern's title victory.

"I have a very well functioning coaching team and everyone does their job excellently".




Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes hailed the pair as "great professionals with outstanding quality", before Rummenigge proposed that there is little reason not to hand both men new deals.

"I have to think about it, too".

Heynckes understands the way Bayern tick and another treble is still available with the Bavarian giants due to face Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup semi-finals on April 17.

"People from outside always say, "They have the best squad, they have to be champions". "Nothing is given away in the Bundesliga".

"We have to enjoy the moment, but it's important to keep our focus on football".

"There'll be a lot of time to celebrate", Franck Ribery said on his 35th birthday.

"We have worked for this since the start of the year and we have a super squad".
