As a player, he was a prolific striker. He mainly played for Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he won four national championships, one cup and one UEFA Cup. He won the 1972 European Football Championship and the 1974 FIFA World Cup with the German national team.

Heynckes has coached for Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayern Munich, where he achieved two German championships, and Real Madrid, where he won the European Champions League 1998.

Career as Player

Heynckes played 385 matches in the German Bundesliga, scoring 220 goals. His tally is the third highest in this league, after Gerd M√ľller's (365 goals) and Klaus Fischer's (268 goals).

He started his playing career in 1964 with Borussia Mönchengladbach who were in the second division. In 1965 the club was promoted to the Bundesliga. Heynckes stayed on for two more years and then left for Hannover 96, where he spent three years.

He returned to Mönchengladbach in 1970, and stayed there until the end of his career in 1978. In this period he won four championships (1971, 1975, 1976 and 1977), the national cup in 1973 and the UEFA Cup in 1975.

National team

Heynckes played 39 times for the German national team and scored 14 times. He won the European Championship of 1972 with Germany, where he took part in the final at the 3-0 victory against the USSR. He was also part of the squad that won the 1974 FIFA World Cup in Germany, but he played only for one half of a game during the tournament.

Career as Coach

After his playing career, he stayed on with Borussia Mönchengladbach and served the club for eight more years as coach, succeeding Udo Lattek in this position.

Between 1987 and 1991 he coached Bayern Munich. In this period, he achieved two German championships with the club (1989 and 1990).

After moving to Eintracht Frankfurt in 1994‚Äď95 he clashed with players Anthony Yeboah, Jay-Jay Okocha and Maurizio Gaudino which led to their eventual departure from the club. Eintracht's Eagles were relegated that season.

After a two-year tenure he moved to CD Tenerife, Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid (1997‚Äď98). There he celebrated his greatest triumph, when, in 1998 and after a 32-year dry spell, he returned the Champions League trophy to Madrid. However, the lack of domestic success saw his tenure terminated by the end of that season. Heynckes then joined SL Benfica before returning to Athletic Bilbao.

Heynckes made a comeback in the Bundesliga when he took over Schalke 04 at the beginning of the 2003‚Äď04 season. His contract there was cut short in September 2004.

In May 2006, he was announced as the new coach of Borussia Mönchengladbach. On 31 January 2007 he retired after fourteen consecutive Bundesliga matches without win and Borussia dropping to 17th place in the table.

Heynckes took over as caretaker coach of Bayern Munich on 27 April 2009 following the sacking of J√ľrgen Klinsmann. On 5 June 2009 Bayer 04 Leverkusen announced his signing. He replaced Bruno Labbadia who moved to Hamburger SV.
