Ottmar Hitzfeld will stay on as coach of Bayern Munich for at least another season, the Bundesliga club have confirmed.
Bayern said that Hitzfeld had reached agreement with the club on a new one-year deal.
“We are delighted we could reach such a quick and easy agreement,” Bayern manager Uli Hoeness said.
“It was a mutual decision to make the new contract just for one year. In due course we’ll review the situation and agree on whether to extend it into the middle or long term.”
Hitzfeld, who led Bayern to victory in the Champions League in 2001, returned for a second spell to replace Felix Magath who stepped down after a poor run of results since the turn of the year.
Recent form has seen the club win two and draw one of the last three Bundesliga games has seen Bayern cut the gap behind leaders Schalke 04 down to six points with nine games to play.
The team also overcame 3-2 deficit in the Champions League to beat Real Madrid and secure a place in the quarter-finals, where they will face Milan.
