Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes crowns turnaround with Bundesliga title

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - When Jupp Heynckes came out of retirement in October to take over at German champions Bayern Munich after the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti few would have forecast such a dominant run for the side.

Bayern beat Augsburg 4-1 on Saturday to secure their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title with five games to spare and stay on track for another treble-winning season, just like in 2013 when they were also coached by Heynckes.

The 72-year-old, who retired after that treble success, returned at the request of Bayern bosses and good friends Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after Italian Ancelotti departed with the team in dire need of consistency.

They had just lost 3-0 at Paris St Germain and had drawn two games in a row in the Bundesliga to see Borussia Dortmund take charge of the title race after their fine start.

Heynckes wasted little time delivering in his fourth coaching stint at the club.
