The German side's director reveals that he has spoken to the club's coach about what the future holds for the Bundesliga side and which players they could sign next season
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."
