Jupp Heynckes will take over the reins at Bayern following the summer holidays. What do you expect from new coach?

Some people say I'm more spectacular on the left, but spectacular does not always mean better. I do not mind playing where, which is important I can play in the same position throughout the season. I do not want to change positions all the time. "

You need to have a good relationship with the fans because they play an important role at club and national team. "
