New manager for Harry Kane? Bayern eyeing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Zinedine Zidane as potential options to replace Thomas Tuchel

  • Bayern on three-game losing streak
  • Thomas Tuchel under pressure
  • Club considering potential replacements

WHAT HAPPENED?

Tuchel has come under pressure at Bayern after a series of poor results that have left the team eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the table. Tuchel will remain in charge for now, but the Bavarian giants are looking at potential replacements, according to Sky Germany. Solskjaer has emerged as a potential candidate on an interim basis should Tuchel not see out the season. Zidane is another manager the club are said to be thinking about currently.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Tuchel has opted to give his players some time off ahead of some key fixtures in a bid to freshen things up after defeats to Leverkusen, Lazio and Bochum which have damaged their hopes of securing silverware this season. Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen has said the club will not sack Tuchel in the wake of their shock defeat to Bochum but has stopped short of offering the coach the club's full support.

DID YOU KNOW?

Zidane won 11 trophies as manager of Real Madrid, including three Champions League titles.

WHAT NEXT FOR BAYERN

Bayern take on RB Leipzig next and anything other than a win will pile more pressure on Tuchel. The Bavarians then face SC Freiburg before hosting Lazio in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. Tuchel's side trail 1-0 from the first leg in Italy.
