Niko Kovac Wins Frankfurt First Trophy In 30 Years By Beating Bayern Munich

Niko Kovac Wins Frankfurt First Trophy In 30 Years By Beating Bayern Munich

In a truly sensational sequence of events, Eintracht Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac has guided the club to their first trophy by beating Bayern Munich, his next employers.

In the DFB-Pokal in Berlin, Ante Robic bagged a brace for Frankfurt, first notching the opener 11 minutes in before re-establishing his side's lead in the 82nd minute following Robert Lewandowski's equaliser early on in the second half.

Then, with Bayern throwing the kitchen sink at their opponents in an attempt to pull level for a second time, including goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, Frankfurt broke on the counter and Mijat Gacinovic sent one half of the Olympiastadion into pandemonium.

He darted up the pitch and slotted a third into an open goal in stoppage time. The scenes were just something else.

Kovac has done a stellar job at Frankfurt, ending their long, arduous wait for a bit of silverware and achieving Europa League qualification as a bonus. He now makes the step up to the Germany's biggest club and looks to continue their recent domestic dominance.
