Bayern Munich have parted ways with their manager Niko Kovac.

It's after the German top-flight champions lost 5-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, which was their heaviest league defeat in 10 years.

Kovac leaves with Bayern fourth in the Bundesliga table, four points behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

Since taking over in July 2018, the 48-year-old Croatian has won 45 of his 65 games in charge.
