Bayern Munich sack Niko Kovac!
Despite the fact that the information that had been leaked on Sunday spoke of a latest vote of confidence for the Bavarian coach, nothing could be further from the truth. His time in the great German team is over; the thrashing helped to decided this.
The decision was made as a mutual agreement, as reported by the club itself, by the president, Uli Hoeness; the general director, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, and the sports director, Hasan Salihamidzic.
"The performance of our team in recent weeks and the results have shown us that we needed to act," could be read in the note made public to announce the dismissal.
