The tweet translates to: "Here in Frankfurt, your star shines brighter than in the south, Niko. You will find your way, cup winner coach!"

It's a classy response to a manager who brought them success.

Kovac managed 'The Eagles' between 2016 and 2018 during a successful two years which saw them qualify for the Europa League as well as win the DFB-Pokal in 2018.

The DFB-Pokal win, which ironically came at the expense of the 48-year-old's future employers Bayern, was Eintracht's first trophy since 1988.

He also managed to bring in a crop of exciting players such as Luka Jovic, Sebastian Haller & Ante Rebic.

The three of them managed to go on and form one of the deadliest attacking trios in world football and caught the eye of many.

All three have since moved on, with Jovic now at Real Madrid while Haller is in the Premier League with West Ham United and Rebic is on loan at AC Milan.

Kovac's spell at Bayern Munich came to an end following the thumping at the Commerzbank-Arena but many were never convinced by the Croatian.

Senior figures such as Thomas Muller were reportedly never on his side while the dressing room had been described as 'dysfunctional' by many sources.

Bayern are ultimately a team in transition following the departure of senior players like Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Mats Hummels in the summer.

Their hunt for a new manager could ultimately lead to Jose Mourinho.

The former Manchester United boss has been out of work since December.
