The German coach will not be taking over at Real Madrid but will not commit to retirement.
Out-going Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Real Madrid job according to Goal.com
Heynckes led Bayern to a historic treble this season and will make way for former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola this summer.
Although he has decided not to pursue the Real Madrid job, Heynckes has ruled out retirement at the moment, preferring instead to take some time out of the game.
“I told my wife last year that my plan was to fulfil my contract and then quit. I did not have any holiday last year and I’ve noticed in the past few weeks that I was close to my limits,” said Heynckes.
Heynckes also said that he had offers from all over Europe, including offers from some rich clubs.
If Heynckes does decide to return to football there will be no shortage of offers, including from Bayern, who hope that he will return to the club in some capacity one day.
With Heynckes out of the running for the Real Madrid job, the only real candidate left is former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Reports suggest that he will able to leave PSG when the French club has found someone to replace him.
