Heynckes has a “clear plan”

New Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes says he has a “clear plan”, which he hopes will help the club return to top form.

The 72-year-old boss retired after guiding Bayern to a Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble in 2013, but he has returned to take over from Carlo Ancelotti after Bayern’s poor start to the season.

Bayern are looking for a sixth straight Bundesliga title this season but are already five points behind Borussia Dortmund after seven matches.

Ancelotti was fired a day after the team’s 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on September 27.
