Hansi Flick and Bayern Munich are the Jay-Z and Beyonce of the football world.
The ride-or-kick the bucket couple became hopelessly enamored, brought down everybody in their way, and seemed to be the most impenetrable matching on earth.
All connections have their issues, in any case – even between two symbols of the music business. Along these lines, we shouldn’t be too astounded that this prominent couple is prepared to separate – Flick and Bayern, not Jay-Z and Beyonce.
In the wake of saving Die Roten from an apparently troubled closure with Niko Kovac in 2019, Flick conveyed the alliance title, the homegrown cup, and the Champions League, all in his introduction season. He ought to have strolled off into the nightfall there and afterward.
All things considered, he stayed, and this season has not been as energizing. Bayern may well actually win the association title, however their European and homegrown cup experiences have both reached untimely closures. Presently Flick has affirmed that he is set to leave the club this late spring – liable to turn into the new Germany supervisor – here’s a rundown of competitors who could supplant him.
- Julian Nagelsmann
Perhaps the best way to defeat the most vehement foes is to team up with them. That would entail Bayern snatching Julian Nagelsmann, the brains behind the RB Leipzig operation.
Nagelsmann has been tipped to be the face of German coaching since breaking onto the scene as an Edin Dzeko doppelgänger and Hoffenheim manager in his late twenties.
This season, he came close to reaching the summit with Die Roten Bullen, but he may take the easier route and join the stronger Reds for the 2021/22 season. There might not be a better fit on this list for someone who is young, driven, and greedy for trophies.

2. Massimiliano Allegri
Imagine this guy approaching you calmly and asking, “Want a new coach next year?”
There’s no chance you will ever say no to such savviness.
In the summer, Massimiliano Allegri is being linked with a return to Juventus, as well as a move to fellow Serie A contenders Roma.
It remains to be seen if he will consider a return to the Old Lady or take the dangerous move to the Italian capital, but he does have another choice.
Bayern loves to win, and so does a man who has won five league titles at a club whose slogan is
“WINNING IS NOT IMPORTANT, IT’S THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS,”
Would be the ideal candidate. He’s got the experience and the profile, along with an aura you just can’t deny.
Suitability rating: 8.5/10
3. Jurgen Klopp
Now is the time for Liverpool supporters to turn down. Jurgen Klopp was the face, spirit, body, and soul of Borussia Dortmund for seven years, and he once made a joke about Bayern Munich, but stranger things have happened in football.
This season would have to be written off as a disappointment unless the Reds go all the way to win the Champions League. Throughout the initiative, Klopp has been despondent.
At Liverpool, he is adored and admired, and the notion that the club will be better off without him is absurd. However, he may believe he has accomplished everything he can on Merseyside and be tempted to join the dark side.
Suitability rating: 8/10
4. Ralf Rangnick
Ralf Rangnick’s name is still there or thereabouts if a major job comes up. Before the Italian giants pulled out of the deal, the boardroom guru worked miracles at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, and looked poised to land a big jump to Milan.
He has been searching for jobs since then, and his name has been linked to a role with the German national team. Rangnick could be considered by Bayern to fill the vacancy left by their outgoing coach, assuming that Flick will be in that role.
He is well-liked in Germany, and few will question his qualifications for such a role.
Suitability rating: 7.5/10
5. Erik ten Hag
While the excitement surrounding Ajax has died down in recent years, Erik ten Hag’s achievements in the Netherlands cannot be forgotten. The Dutchman led his team to the brink of a Champions League final in 2019, and his name was being linked with Real Madrid.
Ten Hag, on the other hand, has persevered through the lack of big opportunities, restoring a team that had its heart torn out from under it.
With Ajax on the verge of yet another European exit at the hands of AS Roma, their coach may be able to move on. The only question is whether Bayern is willing to take a chance on the forward-thinking coach.
Suitability rating: 7/10
6. Joachim Low
Is there a chance we’ll see a straight exchange in the dugouts? Very likely not. Joachim Low has been involved in foreign management since 2004, and his theories are now a little stale.
However, a fresh start could be just what’s needed, and where better to start than with Germany’s (probable) champions?
Of course, he’d have to mend fences with Thomas Muller, whom he ejected from the international scene in a tumultuous manner. Then it’s still not the right idea.
Suitability rating: 4/10
7. Jose Mourinho
What happens when a serial winner stops winning? Realistically, they don’t earn a move to Bayern, that’s for sure. However, should Jose Mourinho be relieved of his duties at Tottenham Hotspur this summer, who’s to say he can’t pull the wool over Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s eyes and land another top job?
There, he’d have to implode pretty spectacularly not to win the league title, and the world will instantly fall back in love with the Special One until he crashes out of Europe to Ajax or Sevilla.
