After four years in retirement, Jupp Heynckes returned to Bayern Munich for a fourth stint as head coach on Friday in the hope of bringing the 2013 glory days back to the Bavarian giants.

This is the 72-year-old's first coaching job since steering Bayern to the 2013 treble, the first and only time a German side have won the Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup titles in a single season.

Heynckes first led Bayern from 1987 to 1991, then briefly in 2009 as caretaker, and from 2011 until 2013.

He takes over the reins from the sacked Carlo Ancelotti, who lost his job last week after a stuttering start to the season and a 3-0 Champions League defeat by Paris Saint-Germain.

"There is a strong relationship of trust between Jupp Heynckes and FC Bayern," said club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

"He is at the moment the ideal coach for Bayern."

Heynckes will be assisted by the current co-trainer of Fortuna Duesseldorf, Peter Hermann, and the current sports director of Bayern's youth team, Hermann Gerland.

"I would not have returned to any other club in the world, but Bayern Munich is close to my heart," said Heynckes, vowing to transform the team back into a "successful" squad.

"I'm doing it only because I owe a lot to Bayern," he said.
