On Friday morning, website claimed to have “exclusive information” that Kovac would be sacked.

Yet Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who is considered one of Kovac’s biggest boardroom critics, denied the reports.

“There is no decision (to sack Kovac), this report is completely made up,” he told Bild newspaper.
