Top News Ragnick In Talk With Bayern To Replace Tuchel

Manager of Austria Ralf Rangnick declared he was in negotiations with Bayern Munich to take over as head coach of the team in the summer.

Although he declined to comment on whether he would accept the offer, the former Manchester United manager said that “there has been contact” between him and Bayern. “I’ve also let the Austrian FA (OeFB) know about it.

We enjoy a really trusting relationship,” he stated in a Wednesday-published interview with the Austrian publication 90 Minutes.

After they decided to part ways in February, Bayern is looking to replace departing manager Thomas Tuchel.

According to German media, the club made an attempt to sign Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann, who had coached Bayern before, and Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso, but both men turned down the club’s offer and chose to remain in their current positions.

Rangnick stated he was “focused” on leading the Austrian team into this summer’s Euros in Germany, but he did not disclose if he would accept the Bayern position.

“We are completely concentrating on the European championships. I feel very comfortable here.”

“At the moment there is no reason to deal with (the interest from Munich) intensively and specifically.”

When asked if he would “discuss it with the Austrian FA” if he wanted to “do something different,” Rangnick replied that he would “think about taking the Bayern job in the future.”

“If Bayern said ‘we want you’, I would have to ask myself if I even want that.”

According to Rangnick, money had “no role at all” in his choice.

“For me it’s about other things: Can I make a difference? Is there a chance of developing a team and being successful? That’s what drives me.”

Known as the “godfather of gegenpressing,” Rangnick has influenced German football history more than anybody in recent memory, serving as both a sporting director and coach.

The 65-year-old has coached several German teams, including Hannover, Schalke, Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig, and Ulm, which he led to their first Bundesliga promotion, in addition to his seven-month tenure as manager of the Red Devils.

Bayern’s 11-year winning streak in the Bundesliga came to an end this season with Leverkusens’ historic championship win.

But the team has advanced to the semifinals of the Champions League, where it will take on Real Madrid.
