Is everything going to happen quickly at FC Bayern Munich? The former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is ready and is probably already in talks with the record champions. The Frenchman is ready to work as a transitional coach and already have an idea for his assistant.
Football record champions Bayern Munich reportedly negotiates with Arsene Wenger on a cast of the vacant coach post. The 70-year-old Frenchman is currently working in Qatar on BEIN Sports as an expert on the Champions League, but according to information from the "Bild-Zeitung" has already had a concrete conversation with the people of Munich. The portal "The Athletic" reported, however, citing a club source, Wenger is currently not among Bayern's circle of trainee candidates. Wenger, who had coached Arsenal from 1996 to 2018, confirmed on Tuesday that he would be tempted by a bid by Bayern: "Coaching is my life, of course I'm interested." Wenger should be ready to jump in as a transition coach until next summer – and thus take a similar role as Jupp Heynckes 2017 after the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti 2017. Then Bayern apparently want a younger coach like Thomas Tuchel (Paris St. Germain) or Erik get Hag (Ajax Amsterdam). Both said so far only that they were not available this season. After the Bundesliga summit between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday (18.30 clock / Sky and Liveticker at n-tv.de) allegedly a personal meeting with Wenger is planned, which probably also interim coach Hansi Flick committed as an assistant coach and no Rangnick said that when searching for a new coach, the Munich team had previously received another cancellation. "Ralf Rangnick is not available," said Rangnick manager Marc Kosicke the picture: "We do not believe that what Ralf Rangnick brings is currently being sought at Bayern." And therefore it makes no sense to hold concrete talks. " Since leaving RB Leipzig in the summer, Rangnick has been the Head of Sports and Development Soccer in the Red Bull Cosmos. Allegedly, Manchester United is interested in his services. In the search of the new coach, the master but "not put under pressure". That's what sports director Hasan Salihamidzic said before the Champions League game against Olympiacos Piraeus. "We are trying to make a good decision and we will take our time," added the Bosnian.
