German Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich have parted company with manager Niko Kovac following their 5-1 shock defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt over the weekend.

48-year-old Kovac, who led Bayern to a league-and-cup double last season, won 45 of his 65 games with the team, but Saturday’s defeat was the club’s heaviest in the Bundesliga in 10 years.

The defeat was also Bayern’s second in 10 Bundesliga games this season.
