Arsene Wenger On Bayern Short-List

Arsene Wenger On Bayern Short-List

However, Bild journalist Christian Falk says Wenger spoke with Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge yesterday but the Frenchman will not be taking over in Bavaria.

"I expect from our players is a positive development and an absolute desire to play well, so we were able to achieve this goal season", said sporting Director Hasan salihamidžić.

The club have confirmed that Hansi Flick will take charge of Bayern's Champions League clash against Olympiacos on Wednesday, as well as next weekend's Klassiker against Borussia Dortmund.

The 48-year-old former Croatia global said it was the right move for the side who sit in fourth place in the table after a series of disappointing matches.

Kovac, who took over after a spell in charge of, ironically, Eintracht Frankfurt, had no complaints saying getting rid of him was the "correct decision for the club at this time".

My brother Robert and I thank Bayern for this year and a half.

The fact that the reigning champions had won just once in their last four Bundesliga outings played a part in Kovac's exit.

"It was a good time".

Wenger, Southampton manager Ralf Rangnick, Ajax's Erik ten Hag and former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri are reported to be on the short-list although ten Hag was reported on Monday to have rebuffed an approach from Bayern.

Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski became the third player to score in eight consecutive Champions League group stage appearances, after Cristiano Ronaldo (nine, 2012 to 2014) and Lionel Messi (eight, 2015 to 2017).

His candidacy is helped by the fact that he is a fluent German speaker and his history of playing the type of fluid, attacking football craved by Bayern Munich supporters.

Lewandowski has scored in all of Bayern's Bundesliga and European games this term, tucking home Kingsley Coman's cross to add to his tally.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Wenger, who could start work immediately and is fluent in German, is confident he can make the team better, improve the results and the style of play.
