"It's been a tough Champions League thus far drawing Paris, Juve and now Bayern". Meanwhile, their opponents for the semi-final have been in exceptional form despite a drowsy start to the season. The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss was heavily criticized by the fans, critics and even the Bayern Munich president before eventually being fired by the club.

Bayern squandered some scoring chances in the ensuing minutes during the match on Saturday but then took the lead with two goals over a five-minute stretch of the first half, Efe news reported.

Lewandowksi came off the bench to get on the scoresheet himself, his 27th Bundesliga goal of the season taken well in the closing stages as Bayern racked up a 15th league win from their last 17 outings.

While Kovac's hopes of guiding his current club to UEFA Champions League qualification suffered a significant setback in a 4-1 loss at Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday (AEST), Bayern had no such problems as it cruised to a 5-1 hammering of Borussia Monchengladbach. "A enormous fixture, in a very positive way", he said.

Hoeness refuted Bobic's suggestion that Bayern gave news of Kovac's move to the media, and said such claims were "indecent if you don't know the situation". "Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world, with Lionel Messi", he said. "I have good memories of our treble season". He has often been decisive.

Former Croatia worldwide and Croatia head coach Kovac played 34 Bundesliga matches for Bayern from 2001 to 2003, scoring three goals. Hopefully we can step up to the plate once again. "We're convinced he's the right coach for the future of FC Bayern".
