‘Sa­cred fire’ of Heynckes im­presses Muller

The National - News - - SPORT / FOOTBALL -

There were eye­brows raised in the foot­ball com­mu­nity when Jepp Heynckes agreed to take charge of Bay­ern Mu­nich for a fourth stint at the age of 72 this week to re­place Carlo Ancelotti. But, ac­cord­ing to Bay­ern striker Thomas Muller, age is no bar­rier for Heynckes and he still has the abil­ity to mo­ti­vate. “The sa­cred fire is still there with Jupp Heynckes. He has given off a lot of en­ergy since Mon­day with his team of coaches,” Muller said yes­ter­day. Bay­ern play their first game since Heynckes took over to­mor­row at home to Freiburg, and Muller said he and his team­mates would not let him down. “A change of coach al­ways re­leases en­ergy, and I think we, the play­ers, must now give a lot of our­selves. There are no more ex­cuses,” he said.
