Ralf Rangnick to be next Bayern Munich manager

Next Bayern Munich Manager

Rangnick is currently in charge of the Austria national side and has rebuilt his reputation somewhat after a disastrous spell at Old Trafford where he clashed with players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, but is expected to take up discussions with Bayern after admitting he had been contacted over the role.

It comes after Bayern have seen several targets slip through their fingers, with Julien Nagelsmann extending his Germany contract and Xabi Alonso committing his future to Bayer Leverkusen as they seek a Thomas Tuchel replacement this summer.

Here are the latest odds with BetVictor:

Meet the Candidates

Ralf Rangnick

Rangnick has built himself a good reputation over a 30-year managerial career, earning the nickname ‘The Professor’ for his tactical astuteness. He has spent the majority of his career managing in the Bundesliga and had a spell as a director with Red Bull across the Leipzig and Salzburg teams, before Manchester United came calling. That spell of his career across 2021 and 2022 - did not go to plan and ultimately lasted barely six months before his moved on to the Austria national job.

However he is very well regarded in the German game and a move to Bayern feels like it has always been on the cards at some point in his career, having led the way for the current generation of managers. He could be the ideal man to help Bayern move on from the current generation and usher in a new era.

Zinedine Zidane

Every time a major job comes up, Zidane finds himself linked despite not having held any managerial role other than Real Madrid, a job he has done twice between 2016 and 2021. He has done it to great effect, winning the Champions League in three successive years and LaLiga twice, but there are still many who doubt his credentials at taking a job outside of Madrid.

As a world class player as well as a high-achieving manager, there is no doubt he would command respect but it would be a surprise to see him pop up at the Allianz.

Roberto De Zerbi

It would undoubtedly be a big step up for De Zerbi, who has impressed in his two-year stay at Brighton so far. He has earned plaudits for an energetic and entertaining style of play, something that would fit in well in Bavaria while his development of players with the Seagulls has also proved his coaching ability.

Doubts remain over his ability to coach at the very highest level, with Brighton struggling in 10th this season after such an impressive campaign last year while they did well to qualify from the groups in the Europa League only to be heavily beaten by Roma in the round of 16. There is a strong argument that De Zerbi has taken Brighton as far as he can, but a step up to one of the biggest clubs in Europe would undoubtedly be a big ask and given Bayern’s struggles with the likes of Niko Kovac in recent years, they may not be willing to take such a gamble.

Hansi Flick

Flick is another who has previously managed Bayern, having stepped up from assistant manager in 2019 following the sacking of Kovac to lead the club to Champions League glory and the club’s second continental treble. He has a long association with the club following four league titles as a player, and then lifted seven trophies while manager before moving on for the Germany national job.

Things didn’t go quite so well there which caused his stock to fall and he has been out of work ever since, but a return to the Allianz would not be a major surprise given that a lot of the same players are still there, he departed the club on a high and at 59 years of age, still has time on his side.

Sebastian Hoeness

Perhaps a surprise inclusion on this list, Hoeness has pulled up trees since he was appointed Stuttgart manager last year, taking over with the club bottom of the table and eventually saving them from relegation via the play-offs.

As is a popular route in German football, Hoeness started his managerial career with the Bayern Munich youth teams before taking on the reserve team, winning the title with them in his first season. His familiarity with the club is likely to count for a lot, while he has also been heralded as one of the country’s most promising young coaches with Stuttgart flying this season in third place - level with Bayern.

Is he the flavour of the month or the real deal? Bayern might want a bit more proof that he is not just a flash in the pan before giving him the reigns.
