Bayern Munich have sacked head coach Niko Kovac.
The Croatian – who led Die Roten to the German league and cup double last season – was dismissed on Sunday, after meeting CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, president Uli Hoeness and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
His departure comes just over 24 hours after Bayern were thrashed 5-1 by his former club, Eintracht Frankfurt, on Saturday.
That result was only Bayern’s second defeat in the Bundesliga this season in 10 games.
