Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes mistaken for a supporter

He may be one of the most successful managers in the club's history, but it would appear that Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes isn't entirely a household name across Germany.

With his team travelling to play Augsburg this weekend, Heynckes was making his way from the team hotel when he bumped into a couple of oblivious passers-by from America.

We'll let the man himself take up the anecdote from here.

Well, it's not like Heynckes fibbed to his new acquaintances -- he definitely qualifies as a Bayern fan having won three Bundesliga titles and a league/cup/Champions League treble during his several stints in charge.

Still, definite shades of Bastian Schweinsteiger being asked to take a photo of his Chicago Fire teammates at Toronto airport. 

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
