Whoever takes over from Ancelotti in the long run won’t solely need to type out the on-subject points, they may also have to revive concord to a disgruntled squad.

Thomas Tuchel

The previous Mainz and Borussia Dortmund coach is by far the favorite to take over at Bayern. His tactical philosophy chimes with Bayern’s expectations, and membership chief government Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has expressed admiration for Tuchel up to now. 

He may even deliver the sense of urgency and tactical micro-administration which the Bayern gamers loved underneath Pep Guardiola, and have missed underneath Ancelotti.

The Bayern bosses could also be cautious of Tuchel’s combative character; at each Mainz and Dortmund, he left together with his relationship to the hierarchy in tatters. 

Then again, Rummenigge and Hoeness have handled worse. Most significantly of all, Tuchel is the one of many few candidates who’s at present out of labor, so there’s little to cease him starting work subsequent month.

Julian Nagelsmann

The 30-yr-previous has shot to prominence together with his success at Hoffenheim within the final 18 months, and is usually thought-about to be a celebrity coach within the making.

Many anticipate him to someday take over at Bayern, and Nagelsmann himself has made no bones about the truth that it will be his dream job. It’s unlikely, nevertheless, that he would bounce ship at Hoffenheim now, having simply begun a primary Europa League marketing campaign. Bayern would in all probability have to attend till subsequent summer time if Nagelsmann is their man.

Jurgen Klopp

Willy Sagnol

The previous Bayern full-again was promoted from assistant to interim coach after Ancelotti’s dismissal this week. He’ll take cost for Sunday’s fixture towards Hertha Berlin.

Although it’s unlikely that Bayern would belief such a training novice with virtually a whole season, Sagnol could also be helpful center-time period answer. 

If they’re critical about going after Klopp or Nagelsmann subsequent summer time, then they may want somebody to fill the hole between at times – a task which the likes of Tuchel would definitely refuse. Sagnol can also be an organization man, and is aware of each the membership and the workforce nicely. 

Earlier than he was given the submit of Ancelotti’s assistant final summer time, he appropriately recognized that the group lacked a transparent philosopy, and criticised the Italian’s aversion to utilizing younger gamers.

Luis Enrique

Profitable the treble with Barcelona is sufficient to make sure you are all the time linked to the highest jobs, so Luis Enrique’s identify has been popping up everywhere within the final forty eight hours.

It will endear him to Bayern’s giant Spanish-talking contingent, however then that’s one thing which proved problematic for each Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola.
