From the dramatic to the bland, Bayern completed the job against Sevilla after a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena.
"I assume that Kovac will have more success at Bayern than Tuchel at Paris Saint-Germain".
This season the Eagles are now fifth in the Bundesliga and fighting for a place in the Champions League for the first time since they were losing finalists to Real Madrid in 1959/60 (when it was the European Cup), just two points behind Bayer Leverkusen in fourth.
But Bayern believed they were robbed after Arturo Vidal was sent off in Madrid and Ronaldo's second and third goals, which were scored in extra time, should have been ruled offside.
"As it stands, I will be in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt next year - 100%".
But the current campaign has also showed a more creative side to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Ronaldo finally got the vital goal they had craved to pile more misery on the Italians, who were beaten 4-1 by Madrid in last season's final in Cardiff.
Kovac, born in Berlin to Croatian parents, is under contract to Frankfurt until 2019.
Frankfurt also has a German Cup semifinal match against Schalke next week. "But different cultures mean different influences and different ways of thinking". We're not concerned about politics - we play football. Of course you'd love to but it doesn't work like that.
Ultimately though, Die Roten had enough know-how to play within themselves, protect their first-leg lead and progress.
Kovac has also previously coached Red Bull Salzburg's second side, before taking on the role as assistant of the first team under Ricardo Moniz. You need time and patience to grow.
Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic was furious, accusing Bayern of being "not professional and disrespectful".
Frankfurt have been hitting the right notes for a while now, as discussed here.
The 72-year-old is in his fourth spell at the club, and could yet win the Champions League again.
Kovac will be joined at Bayern by his younger brother Robert as assistant coach.
