Jupp Heynckes says he will remain coach of Bayern Munich even if his team wins the Champions League against Chelsea in the May 19 final at its own stadium.

Heynckes is 66 and German media have speculated he might step down if Bayern wins.

Heynckes has another year on his contract and told reporters Thursday he will see it through no matter what happens in the final.

Bayern has considered extending his contract but Heynckes says it's too early for him to make a decision.


Bayern will finish second in the Bundesliga and plays the German Cup final against Borussia Dortmund.
