Bundesliga: Zinedine Zidane soon on Bayern Munich's bench?

Thomas Tuchel’s future at Bayern Munich is in doubt and Zinedine Zidane is one of the German’s possible successors.

Thomas Tuchel’s days at Bayern Munich are clearly numbered. A little more weakened after his team’s defeat against Bochum last weekend (2-3), the German coach has almost no chance of staying despite a contract running until 2025. Bayern are second in the Bundesliga ranking, eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen, and is therefore preparing to descend from a throne it has occupied since 2013!

Zidane pleases Bayern

A rumor that surprised more than one, especially since it came from an Italian newspaper not particularly renowned for knowing everything behind the scenes at Bayern. But the transalpine media was right. This morning, several German media are giving weight to the ZZ rumor. Bild indicates that the French coach has not yet been contacted, but that the position should interest him. For its part, Sky Germany confirms that Bayern have indeed ticked Zidane’s name!

Xabi Alonso remains the priority, but one detail works in favor of the former Merengue. If Tuchel is sacked before the end of the season, Zidane is one of the rare coaches immediately available (just like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer), unlike Xabi Alonso. It remains to be seen whether an experience in Germany will convince Zidane who has often rejected offers from countries whose language he does not speak.
