Bayern’s Ideal Candidates

Bayern Munich is reportedly set to bide their time as they eye Jurgen Klopp and Xabi Alonso for their managerial vacancy. Despite the duo being tied up with their current commitments for the foreseeable future, the Bavarian giants consider them prime candidates to take the helm in Munich.

Klopp’s Sabbatical and Alonso’s Commitment

Klopp has hinted at a break from coaching after his tenure with Liverpool ends, citing a depletion of energy. Alonso, on the other hand, is set on honoring his contract with Leverkusen for at least another season, following a triumphant Bundesliga campaign with Bayer.

Interim Management Possibilities

With Klopp and Alonso out of reach for now, Bayern may opt for an interim manager. Speculation surrounds potential candidates, including Lucien Favre and former Bayern coach Hansi Flick. However, the club’s long-term vision appears to be firmly fixed on Klopp or Alonso.

Rangnick in the Mix?

Former Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has emerged as another contender for Bayern’s managerial role. German publication Bild suggests that Bayern has engaged in clandestine discussions with Rangnick, who has recently revitalized his career with Austria’s national team.

Bayern’s Restructuring Ambitions

Following a series of less-than-stellar managerial stints, Bayern is looking to restructure. Rangnick, with his experience in developing Red Bull’s footballing divisions and a knack for high-pressing football, could be a key figure in this transformation, potentially even in an interim capacity.
