33-year-old Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben admitted he wants current head coach Jupp Heynckes to stay at the German club
The veteran coach was brought in as a stop-gap measure, but the Dutchman is keen the arrangement is made more permanent, GOAL understands.
The 72-year-old tactician was brought back as a temporary solution after the sacking of former head coach Carlo Ancelotti. However, Heynckes had done such a great job, that many suggest he should stay on for a longer period.
It’s not only Arjen Robben who thinks that way, as club legend Lothar Matthaus also praised Heynckes on Monday, saying there is “no better coach on the market.”
Robben was asked how he would feel if the 72-year-old manager were to stay with Bayern.
“It would be a pleasure! Anything is possible,” the Dutchman told Bild.

However, even though Robben wants Heynckes to stay, it’s not up to him and the winger claimed he doesn’t know what’s going to happen.
“I don’t know what he thinks or what the plan for the club is,” Robben explained.
Bayern’s chairman of the executive board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was also asked about the issue and he claimed he’ll stick to what the club and the manager have agreed on.
“When Jupp arrived, we made it clear his timetable with us and that has not changed. I stick to what we’ve agree interval,” he said.
“He’s undoubtedly had a great effect. The team is stable, playing well, and exudes fun. We’re doing well in three competitions. Not only are we winning, but we’re playing good football.”
The Bundesliga giants are leading the German top-flight, while they managed to secure progress in the Champions League as well.
