Real Madrid Are Son Of B*ches - Heynckes

Jupp Heynckes unsurprisingly was sacked in 1998 soon after the Champions League Cup triumph though then president president Lorenzo Sanz said Hynckes called his players son of bitches, implying he couldn't work with.

Prior to his exit after giving the Liga Champions a Champions League crown with  Predrag Mijatovic scoring at that encounter, Heynckes told Sanz that the players he has at his disposal are 'sons of bitches' and he won't work with them anymore. Explaining that encounter with Heynckes in an interview with the Idolos programme, Sanz said:
A week before playing Juventus I called Jupp and asked him how he was doing, he told me that he was deflated and that he wouldn't work with the team," he explained in an interview with the Idolos programme. 
I asked him how he couldn't work with the team and told him that he'd then left me deflated.
I then had to gather seven or eight of the more important players and tell them that Jupp felt he couldn't work with them, that they were sons of bitches and that he couldn't win with them.
Sanz often had rather well publicised arguments with opposing presidents, not least Joan Gaspart at Barcelona, however the Spaniard maintains the pair had a good relationship.
Gaspart, as you know, is a very impulsive man, and I had a huge row with him," he confirmed. 
After one Clasico we went down to the bar and Gaspart arrived like a man possessed. 
He kept asking me what happened and I told him to leave me alone or else we'd end up coming to blows, but we've always had a good relationship.

Heynckes was appointed as manager after the exit of Capello but the German tactician entered a dressing room that John Toschack likened to “going into Baghdad”. The former Bayern Munich coach made things worse by being very soft on the squad when they needed a strong personality. The 1997-98 league campaign was an indictment of Heynckes’ approach, Real Madrid won just 5 of their 19 home games, Morientes was the club’s top scorer with 12 goals and the club finished fourth, outside of the European places.

The only reason the manager remained in charge was Los Blancos’ scintillating European form. They had lost just once throughout the whole campaign, conceding just five goals. In the semifinals they overcame the holders, Borrusia Dortmund, setting up a date with Juventus in the final.

Madrid failed to retain their La Liga title, but made up for the domestic disappointment by winning the UEFA Champions League with a 1–0 win over Juventus in Amsterdam, their first European Cup since 1966 as a consolation prize. This, however, was not enough to save the job of manager Jupp Heynckes, who paid for Madrid's low league finish, just eight days after the European triumph.
