Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness claims the club's current boss Jupp Heynckes may stick around the Allianz Arena past this season after stepping in to replace Carlo Ancelotti.
There has been talk
about Heynckes being replaced with former Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann and even Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp who has also been mentioned as candidates to take over.
But the Bavarians Chief believes there is a chance that the club could extend Heynckes' stay. The 72-year old manager has helped the club climb back to the top of the Bundesliga and qualify for last 16 of the Champions League despite the club getting off to a poor start in both competitions under Ancelotti.
On Wednesday, Lothar Matthaus urged Bayern to convince Heynckes to stay on for another year. But the coach said: "I did not apply for the job -- I was asked to take over during a difficult period for Bayern. I am only a temporary solution." said the boss
Hoeness in an interview as reported by Goal said: "I think that is possible, yes.
"The night of Paris [3-0 Champions League loss to Paris Saint-Germain] made the club wake up. In this night, we set the course for what we have seen in the past six weeks.
"Since then we had nine games and won all of them. With Jupp Heynckes the mood changed completely. All of us only hover now. There is a new spirit." the president said when asked if the manager might stay on after the club's annual general meetings on Friday.
The club has not lost under Heynches since he took over, winning nine straight in all competitions.
