Heynckes: I won't coach Barcelona

The former Real Madrid trainer, who won the treble with Bayern Munich last season, will not be replacing Tito Vilanova at Camp Nou as he continues to enjoy his retirement.
Former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes has ruled himself out of the running to be Barcelona's new head coach.

The 68-year-old, who won the treble with the Bavarians last season and masterminded a 7-0 aggregate thrashing of Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals, has been mentioned by the media and Blaugrana supporters as a potential successor to Tito Vilanova, who resigned due to health issues on Friday.

However, the former Real Madrid trainer dismissed suggestions he would be stepping back into the limelight at Camp Nou this coming campaign and insisted his days of coaching are over.

"I'm keeping myself busy with hobbies and sport. I have my animals and a huge garden," he told Sky Sports News HD. "I think it would be impossible for me, after working at Bayern Munich, now to take over a new club.

"I have understood the signals my body has been giving me and I am feeling good, enjoying the time I have for myself."
