Headlines
Bayern Munich are bringing back Jupp Heynckes for his fourth go-round as their manager. He will take over for the departed Carlo Ancelotti until the end of the season. He won three Bundesliga titles and one Champions League title during his previous three stints at the club. He certainly has an uphill climb to add a fourth title onto that resume with Bayern's poor start.

Andres Iniesta signed a "lifetime contract" with Barcelona. The La Masia youth academy product has already spent his entire career there, so why not add the rest of it? He's made 639 appearances and scored 55 goals since making his first team debut back in October of 2002.

FC Dallas were guilty of a roster violation during last week's draw against Orlando City. They removed Michael Barrios from the starting lineup shortly before the game with a foot injury, which makes him ineligible to play in the entire mach, and then brought him on as a sub late. They have escaped the calls for them to forfeit the match and will instead be fined $75,000 in General Allocation Money and $25,000 cash for their transgressions.
