Kovac typically uses a 3-4-2-1 formation at Eintracht, which would mean a change of shape for Bayern, who usually line up with a back four under Heynckes.

"It's hard to get to this stage of the competition and that's eight years in a row we've done it", he said.

"Niko was a Bayern player and knows the people in charge, the structures and the DNA of the club very well", Salihamidzic said. "We are convinced he is the right coach for the future of Bayern". "He was a good Bundesliga player, and even played two years at Bayern", Heynckes said.

"Niko Kova─Ź will be the new coach of FC Bayern from 1 July, 2018".

Kovac will be joined at Bayern by his younger brother Robert, who also acts as his assistant in Frankfurt.

On the threat posed by Ronaldo, the Bayern boss added: "Along with Lionel Messi, he's the best player in the world and I've already talked about him with Toni Kroos".

"He does it excellently, so for sure he is predestined to become coach of Bayern Munich".

The siblings played together at global level, as well as at Bayern. "But where one door closes, another opens".

"The timing is unfortunate, and the fact information has leaked to the public - certainly not from Frankfurt, but from Munich - is disrespectful, unprofessional".

Berlin-born Kovac took over at Frankfurt in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation playoff that season before finishing 11th previous year, when they reached the DFB Pokal final.

The Reds men are the only unbeaten team in the competition despite playing the most games, 12, after coming through the playoff round in August. Lewandowski put Bayern ahead from the spot early in the second half, but after Ronaldo equalised, Sergio Ramos put through his own net to restore parity in the tie.

News of Kovac's appointment was leaked to the German press on Thursday evening and was made official by the Bavarian club on Friday lunchtime, with Frankfurt apparently unaware of the appointment until it was made public.

Borussia Monchengladbach head coach Dieter Hecking insists his team will not settle for limiting the damage against the champions. Respect is hugely important in such a collective.

At the just concluded draws for the Champions League semi finals Real Madrid will face rivals Bayern Munich in a heavyweight contest.

Kovac is relatively inexperienced - Eintracht was his first club job and he was only appointed in March 2016.
