Bayern Munich is ready to decide on which managers are the main candidates to be the next coach for the team next season. Thomas Tuchel leaving at the end of the season is final, and chasing after Xabi Alonso as the replacement is done as well. The German giants are really interested in appointing several coaches in Europe, and the director of sport from Bayern Munich, Max Eberl, has been looking at two coaches: Julian Nagelsmann and Roberto De Zerbi. While Nagelsmann has coached Bayern in the past and could potentially stay as the German head coach after the 2024 Euros, De Zerbi seems to be the primary target.

Bayern's management highly rates the Italian. Max Eberl is a particular admirer.

I have a contract at the moment. the focus is on the pitch. I am really relaxed, without problems. The only problems are the injuries. Not my contract, or future.”

Thomas Tuchel gets credit for his work at Bayern Munich

Kicker reports that regardless of who the new coach will be, the people in charge at Bayern have recognized that Thomas Tuchel was not fundamentally wrong in his assessment of the squad. The players who have been protected for years were confronted with reality. Tuchel ruthlessly addressed the club's real problems and made them clear to the bosses. The club will certainly benefit from that in the long term after three years of mismanagement and personal vanities.
