Coaching career:
VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (twice), FC Bayern München (four times), Athletic Club (twice), Eintracht Frankfurt, CD Tenerife, Real Madrid CF, SL Benfica, FC Schalke 04, Bayer 04 Leverkusen

• One of the best strikers in Bundesliga history, Heynckes hit 220 goals in 369 games for Mönchengladbach and Hannover between 1964 and 1978; won four titles and a German Cup with Mönchengladbach and was the league's top scorer in 1974 (30 goals) and 1975 (27).

Replaced Lattek again in 1987, this time at Bayern, winning 1989 and 1990 titles; club general manager Uli Hoeness called his decision to sack Heynckes in October 1991 "the biggest mistake of my career".

Stepped in as caretaker manager at Bayern in April 2009 following Jürgen Klinsmann's dismissal; replaced Bruno Labbadia as Leverkusen coach that summer and began season with a German record run of 24 Bundesliga games unbeaten.

• His Leverkusen side finished second to Borussia Dortmund in 2010/11 before Heynckes left to take charge of Bayern for a third time; they lost 4-3 to Chelsea FC on penalties in the 2012 UEFA Champions League final at their Fußball Arena München but rallied to win a domestic double and the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League, beating Dortmund in the final.

• Stepped down and retired that summer but returned to the club in October 2017 following Carlo Ancelotti's departure, charged with leading Bayern until the end of the season.
