Bayern Munich's sporting director Matthias Sammer has spoken of his confidence in coach Jupp Heynckes as he reveals that he regularly speaks to the former Real Madrid trainer about the future of the club.
Heynckes' contract runs until the summer of 2014, and 45-year-old Sammer explained that he is regularly in conversation with the 67-year-old coach about the side's plans.
"In all my plans beyond 2013 and beyond 2014, when talking about players or ways of thinking, Jupp Heynckes is the first contact for me," he told Sky Sports News HD.
"For me there is no greater sign of confidence. Accordingly, I am of course totally open when it comes to the topic. However, we have discussed that there should be no pressure situation."
Sammer continued: "His personal and professional skills make him an extraordinary man, an extraordinary coach and create an exceptional personality."
