Jupp Heynckes: ‘I never said I will retire’

Although Heynckes tipped Thomas Tuchel as a potential successor in an interview this week, the 72-year-old suggested he is considering staying on at Bayern for next season, as he told reporters on Friday.
“I can only say nothing at all is decided yet, because, until now I have definitely never said I will retire in the summer. I have only ever referred to our agreement from last year which is still valid.

“Regarding the Sport Bild interview, I only stressed my appreciation for my colleague Thomas Tuchel, who I know very well. But if you study the context of the whole interview, I also praised many other coaching colleagues as well.”
