Arsene Wenger Leading Candidate For Bayern Munich Job

Niko Kovac leaves Bayern Munich

That's the first of two huge matches at the Allianz Arena in a matter of days, with 'Der Klassiker' live on BT Sport 1 HD and Ultimate from 5.15pm on Saturday.

Flick will then prepare the team for this weekend's must-win Der Klassiker showdown against Borussia Dortmund, before the global break takes effect. The Bavarians are set to take the upcoming worldwide break to do a thorough search for their next manager.

Bayern's formidable front-three of Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Robet Lewandowski brilliantly shredded Spurs and such a potent attack should be capable of firing Flick's team into the lead by the time the clock hits the half hour mark in Munich.

"No, Ralf Rangnick is not available", he told Bild .

Wenger left Arsenal after 22 years in 2018.

While talking to an global media outlet, Wenger said that he would certainly be interested in taking up the challenge as coaching was his life.

"There are things you miss a lot and some things you don't miss".

"But winning games, preparing the team, plus getting satisfaction and shared emotions". I enjoy the things I don't miss too much.

Even if this was only a short-term deal, you'd have to think it's a safe move from Bayern that would allow them to reassess the situation later in the season.

Sky in Germany reported on Tuesday that PSG boss Tuchel had been contacted by Bayern Munich.

"Coaching was my whole life and everybody who was a coach will tell you the same, that they miss the intensity", he said, when asked directly about the Bayern vacancy.

Some of those include Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as well as one of Wenger's greatest rivals, Jose Mourinho.

Wenger fits this profile as he cannot be a long term option for the Bavarians.

The Frenchman had a brilliant tenure with the Gunners, but a disappointing last few years saw him pass the torch onto Unai Emery. Join the Bayern Strikes team!

Arsene Wenger is now the favorite to become Bayern Munich's next head coach, according to ESPN FC.

Kovac had been brought in as an low-priced option after a string of big-name predecessors, including Louis van Gaal, Jupp Heynckes, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

Wenger's time at Arsenal came to an end following successive years of no Champions League football.
