Club veteran Jupp Heynckes' current deal with Bayern ends at the conclusion of the current season, and the Bundesliga giants could be without a manager if he decides to retire from the game.

They had just lost 3-0 at Paris St Germain and had drawn two games in a row in the Bundesliga to see Borussia Dortmund take charge of the title race after their fine start. Celebrations were relatively muted as the side looked to the remaining targets.

"It's a special moment, because we now know we're champions", said Ribery, who has now won the Bundesliga eight times since joining in 2007.

The former Germany No1 revealed: "Zinedine Zidane is undoubtedly worth considering, I think he's sensational".
