Jupp Heynckes talks about retirement from football when his season with Bayern Munich ends.

The Bavarians are on route to get a famous double after already winning the Bundesliga title, and are in the final of the Champions League where they face familiar foe Borussia Dortmund.

They punched their tickets to Wembley after an equally impressive performance in a 7-0 aggregate victory against Barcelona.

However, Heynckes will step down at the end of the campaign to make way for Pep Guardiola.

“First of all, I know what I’m doing after the UEFA Champions League final,” said Heynckes.

“I will be 68 this month on May 9. That means it’s been 50 years in football – 50 years as both a player and as a manager so maybe it’s been enough.”

Despite the information, he claimed he will not give a definite answer on his future until after their European clash with Dortmund.

“Obviously, my team is at a top-class level. We are world class,” he added.

“That’s why you journalists speculate about my future, about what I’ll do after the final. But that’s not going to have any impact on whatever decision I’ll make after June 1.”
