Top 6 Bayern Coach Candidates
Check out the odds of the top 6 candidates to become Bayern's manager.

According to online sportsbook news in Germany, Bayern failed to win against Dusseldorf this weekend. They are now three league fixtures without a win. They are fifth in the Bundesliga and nine points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund. This is their second-time downward drift after going four games without a win in last October.

If Bayern hierarchy decides to let Kovac go, you can bet on the next Bayern coach to be one of the international stars such as Zidane, Conte, or Wenger. If they are unavailable, Bayern will likely bring somebody who is familiar with German football. Peter Hermann, Lucien Favre, and Miroslav Klose are among those with good managerial reputation in Bundesliga.

1. Arsene Wenger the Favourite

Arsene Wenger
Wenger expressed his desire to pick up a new adventure after the winter break.

Arsene Wenger may be 68 years old, but the former long-serving Arsenal boss never said he planned to retire. He has been out of work since leaving Arsenal at the end of last season. What’s more he expressed his desire to pick up a new adventure after the winter break. For some reason he is linked to Bayern by online sportsbook news in Germany. If you think the rumours are true, you can bet on him with 1.70 odds at Unibet Sportsbook.

2. Zidane Holds a Record of 3 UCL Titles

Zidane
It is unclear what Zidane really wants to do after his success at Real Madrid.

The Frenchman is placed third with 7.00 at Unibet Sportsbook. Currently, he holds an incredible record of winning three consecutive Champions Leagues in two and a half seasons. However, it is unclear what Zidane really wants to do after his success at Real Madrid. Some analysts say he is looking to get a directorship instead of another managerial job.

3. Conte to Turn down Bayern if not Paid by Chelsea

Antonio Conte (6.00) is a potential target for Bayern Munich. He is a top-class manager currently out of work. Chelsea sacked him in the summer after a fifth place finish in PL. Rumours have linked Conte to Real Madrid and Manchester United. Yet, some say he did not sign with Real due to unresolved financial dispute with Chelsea. If that is correct, he might skip the Bavarians as well until Chelsea agree to compensate him.

4. Hermann Assisted both Heynckes and Kovac

Peter Hermann
Hermann has two decades of managerial experience

Peter Hermann stands at 10.00 to be the future of Bayern. He worked under Heynckes, and he is currently assisting Niko Kovac. He has two decades of managerial experience in the Bundesliga. Yet he only took the lead as interim manager with Bayer Leverkusen for couple of times, but he failed to pull out good results. It remains to be seen if Bayern decide to go with Hermann for such difficult mission.

5. BVB Favre to Win Bundesliga This Season

When it comes to managers, the ability to beat Bayern is considered the key requirement for any potential hopefuls. The Swiss coach Lucien Favre led Gladbach to win against Bayern in 2015. Also, he led Dortmund to win over Bayern this season. His impressive success with BVB so far will certainly make him a candidate (12.00). However, he has good chance to win Bundesliga with Dortmund. Therefore, it is hard to see him leave BVB this season.

6. Bayern U17 Coach Miroslav Klose

16-time World Cup goalscorer Miroslav Klose stepped into management in 2016. First, he was part of the coaching staff of the German national team. After Germany dropped out in Russia, Klose joined Bayern as coach of the club’s under-17 team. He would certainly have a bright future with the Bavarians, and he might become the head coach of the first team (12.00). However, Klose is still building his reputation, so he will need maybe a year or more to step up and look for head coach job.
