„Otherwise Bayern will still be…“ – What Matthäus thinks about Bayern’s coaching search

Lothar Matthäus

With the summer approaching and Thomas Tuchel’s announced departure as coach at FC Bayern Munich, attention is turning to the possible candidates for his successor. Record international Lothar Matthäus has a clear opinion on the coaching search. However, he still believes that the Munich team can achieve the big win in the current season.

In an interview with RTL, Lothar Matthäus shared his views and analyses on the current situation at FC Bayern. „If the team carries on as it did in the games against Lazio Rome and the 8:1 win against Mainz 05, then I don’t think Bayern Munich will have to hide much from the teams that are in the Champions League,“ Matthäus explained.

After a number of sporting setbacks, Munich have recently shown an upturn in form. They reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League and also showed a clear improvement in the Bundesliga recently. Nevertheless, they are ten points behind league leaders Bayer Leverkusen. In addition, the German record champions were surprisingly eliminated in the second round of the cup against third-division club 1. FC Saarbrücken.

Alonso „at the top of Bayern’s wish list“

Speculation about the future of the coaching position at FC Bayern is in full swing and Matthäus has a clear opinion on the matter. „Xabi Alonso is of course an option,“ Matthäus is certain. He added: „Otherwise Bayern will have two or three options. But Xabi Alonso is definitely at the top of Bayern’s wish list.“ The Spaniard is in the process of playing a historic season with Bayer Leverkusen and is also regarded as an absolute dream solution by those in charge at Munich. Initial talks are already underway.

In addition to ex-Bayern player Alonso, Zinedine Zidane, Roberto De Zerbi and Antonio Conte are also considered possible successors to Tuchel.
