Heynckes spoke in glowing terms of the utility-man Joshua Kimmich after he penned a new three-year contract extension with the runaway Bundesliga leaders on Friday morning.

His latest exploits in front of goal mean he has now scored 100 Bundesliga goals for Bayern and is the club's all-time leading foreign goal-scorer with 142 from 182 games in all competitions. He has great potential to develop and is incredibly talented.

"Joshua has tremendous footballing ability and can follow in the footsteps of Philipp Lahm, becoming a true identification figure at the club".

A general view of the Allianz Arena is seen during the Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena on March 22, 2008 in Munich, Germany.

Commenting on this development, Qasim Elegbede, the Brand and Marketing Director at StarTimes said that "We are happy to have been able to impact the lives of over 300 young boys positively. We're at home and want to build on our good performance in Freiburg". Having sat out of the 6-0 drubbing of Hamburg with a calf complaint on Saturday, James should come back into the side.

Jerome Boateng, who was making his 250th appearance for Bayern, instigated the move to set up the home side's third goal in their next meaningful attack when a long ball to David Alaba was cushioned for Lewandowski inside the area to slot home his second. This week there was a reshuffle behind the scenes, with Heribert Bruchhagen relieved of his duties as chairman.

Bernd Hollerbach's side are up against it in their battle with relegation, sitting second bottom, seven points behind Mainz.

He told a press conference reported on the club website: "Of course, Bayern are the best team in Germany, if not in all of Europe".

"I will be 73 in the summer, and you never know how much more time you have", said Heynckes. "You can always lose to Bayern, but I didn't like the manner of our defeat".

Hamburg will be without Albin Ekdal, Bjarne Thoelke, Mergim Mavraj and Nicolai Muller.
