Bayern Munich confirm Niko Kovac as next coach on three-year deal

Courtois' loan came back to bite Chelsea as Atletico ran out 3-1 aggregate winners in the 2013/14 Champions League semi-finals. Liverpool's triumph in '84 was its fourth in eight seasons but it had been a decade since the Merseyside club reached this stage of the competition.

Jupp Heynckes seemed to be in the best possible mood when commentating Bayern Munich's "breaking news day".

"It's a hard draw for both sides".

Whoever emerges from the clash of the Spanish and German giants will still be favourites, but that won't rattle the Reds who won't be such massive underdogs as they were in Istanbul 13 years ago. "We have to take it as it is". Instead, this conspiracy suggests the Champions League is doing everything it can to make Cristiano Ronaldo look even better.

And Rodriguez is looking forward to lining up against Real in the Champions League last four.

But the Italians staged a remarkable comeback to level the tie at 3-3 on aggregate before Ronaldo scored a victor from the penalty spot in injury time. "But what do you want, that is how Bayern work, only thinking about themselves". This year, they are fighting for Champions League qualification, sitting fifth in the Bundesliga table.

The former Real boss is expected to retire at the end of the season and Bayern named his replacement Friday in Eintracht Frankfurt manager Niko Kovac.

Kovac took over at Eintracht Frankfurt in March 2016 with the Hessians fighting to avoid the drop, which they managed only after winning the relegation playoff against FC Nuremberg. He'll no doubt be keeping an eye on his future, higher-profile team in the semifinals.

The Eagles have since enjoyed a stunning transformation. Liverpool have happy memories of the 1984 final, played in Rome's Stadio Olimpico, which they won 4-2 on penalties after the match finished 1-1 in extra-time.

"It is just the draw and I know it is very exciting, but it is good because the most important news is we are still in the competition".

It's an interesting contrast to a criticism frequently levelled at another candidate for the Bayern Munich job, Thomas Tuchel, whose man-management of some Borussia Dortmund players damaged team morale.

"Niko always talks to me but I haven't received any information". "We were very close to each other and we are good friends". They should have probably won four- or five-nil.

The first leg will be played April 24-25 with the return leg taking place on May 1-2.

Kiev will host the final on May 26.
