Real Madrid reappointed Zinedine Zidane as manager in March and, the same month, Manchester United confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be permanently in charge.
The news not only brought joy and happiness to fans of their respective clubs, but it was received well by Tottenham Hotspur supporters as Mauricio Pochettino was repeatedly linked with moves to both.
However, reports linking the South American with a move away from London haven’t stopped.
There were quite frankly ridiculous claims in recent days that AC Milan are prepared to offer Pochettino a £300m transfer kitty as a tempter. They’re not, they don’t have it, it’s pretty certain they won’t spend half that, maybe a quarter.
Poch’s impressive work with Tottenham has made Bayern Munich ‘tempt’ him, according to Mundo Deportivo journalist Miguel Rico, who is well connected.
Bayern have Nico Kovac as their current manager at the Allianz Arena, but the German club would be willing to change, despite the Croatian having a contract until 2021.
It’s stated the Bundesliga winners sporting director, Hasan Salihamidžić, has ‘bet’ on the former Southampton manager, who is tied to the English club until 2023 and has a ‘paradoxical story’.
Despite Pochettino doing a fine job, the 47-year-old has never won silverware in his managerial career.
Rico claims Bayern ‘appear on the horizon… offering the only thing he doesn’t have in London’: A very high chance of winning trophies immediately.
Following Bayern’s 5-0 win over Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, which sets them up for their seventh successive title, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge made it clear that Kovac has no job guarantee at the club and must live with the pressure.
