Bayern Munich have sacked manager Niko Kovac after the German giants were thrashed 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
The 5-1 defeat was Bayern Munich’s second loss in 10 Bundesliga games this season. The defeat is also the club’s heaviest in the Bundesliga in 10 years.

Bayern have struggled this season under Kovac’s leadership and the team are trailing surprise league leaders Monchengladbach by four points.

“The performance of our team in recent weeks and the results have shown us that there was need for action. [Bayern club president] Uli Hoeness, [sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic and I had an open and serious conversation with Niko on this basis on Sunday with the consensual result that Niko is no longer coach of FC Bayern,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a club statement.

“We all regret this development. I would like to thank Niko Kovac on behalf of FC Bayern for his work, especially for winning the doubles this past season,” added Rummenigge.

Assistant coach Hans Flick will take charge of Bayern’s Champions League clash with Olympiakos on Wednesday and for next Saturday’s key clash with Borussia Dortmun.
