Bayern Munich fire Kovac after humiliating loss

In the wake of their worst Bundesliga defeat in 10 years, Bayern Munich have decided to part ways with manager Niko Kovac.

The reigning German champions were thrashed 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, after which Kovac said he was “not naive” when quizzed about the security of his position on the bench.

Bayern confirmed that assistant Hans-Dieter Flick will assume managerial duties for upcoming matches against Olympiacos and Borussia Dortmund.

More to come.
