There’s a lot of uncertainty around Hansi Flick’s future at Bayern Munich and Fussball Transfers reported on Wednesday the manager will most likely not continue at Allianz Arena next season.
It was also explained the Bavarian club ‘appreciates’ Thomas Tuchel, but are aware it is ‘almost impossible’ to get him away from Chelsea.
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl is also viewed as an option for the German giants, who were knocked out of the Champions League at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain.
Munich based newspaper Tz looks at possible candidates to replace Flick at Bayern after this campaign.
Hasenhüttl is second in the list, after RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann. The latter has made it clear there’s been no talks with Bayern so far.
With regards to the Saints boss, Tz explain the Austrian is ‘no stranger to Bayern’, having spent time with Bayern Munich II as a player between 2002 and 2004.
Prior to joining Southampton in 2018, Hasenhüttl managed four German clubs, SpVgg Unterhaching, VfR Aalen, FC Ingolstadt 04 and RB Leipzig, for over a decade.
It’s claimed the 53-year-old would be a ‘good match’ for Bayern, if his philosophy and playing style is considered. However, he hasn’t won any major silverware, which is why he is ‘not decorated enough’ for Bayern.
Hasenhüttl has a contract with Southampton until 2024 and Tz rate the ‘probability’ of him arriving at Bayern in the summer at 15 percent. Only Nagelsmann is given a higher [20%] percentage than the Premier League manager.
