Jupe Heynckes,the real icon of success

The 68-year-old will leave the club at the end of the season to be replaced by Pep Guardiola but he could finish off with the Treble.

Bayern's win made Jupp Heynckes the fourth coach to win the European Cup with two different teams.

He previously won the trophy with Real Madrid in 1998The others are Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970 and Hamburg 1983), Ottmar Hitzfeld (Dortmund 1997 and Bayern 2001), and Jose Mourinho (Porto 2004 and Inter 2010).

Bayern contest the German Cup next weekend and could add that crown to their German league and Champions League successes.

"We have to be cautious," said Heynckes, who also suggested striker Robert Lewandowski will be joining Mario Gotze in leaving Dortmund for Bayern.

"My successor will be able to take over a perfectly functioning team.

"We know Mario Gotze will be joining us and I don't think Robert Lewandowski will be hanging about too much either.

"Of course Bayern Munich will have to prove they can continue to achieve these things but possibly a new era might have begun for the club."

Bayern right-back and experienced Germany captain Philipp Lahm admitted his side's defeats in the 2010 and 2012 Champions League finals had weighed heavily on the players.

"It's incredible. A huge joy and huge relief," said the 29-year-old.

"The pressure was enormous after losing in the Champions League final twice.

"We all felt that in the first 20 minutes but after that we played much better.

"If we lost a third final we didn't know if we'd get another chance even though the club is in good shape and we're all in the prime of our careers.

"The pressure was big all day but it was really enormous when the match started, something I've never experienced before.

"We said that if we want to be the golden generation then we have to win some international titles. That's what people remember. Finally we succeeded in getting that."
