Bayern don’t have a lot of time to react after sacking Kovac early in the season with the league’s main competitors slowly slipping away.

Bayern Munchen are looking into their options for the future. The primary names that pop up include Ralf Rangnick and the omnipresent Jupp Heynckens.

However, the latest report from Bild claims that Rangnick rejected the Bayern position. With Heynckens unwilling to return from retirement once again, this leaves Bayern with a clear option.

Arsene Wenger took a year off of football, making his presence known around the TV a lot.

Bild now considers Wenger the number one candidate to take over the Bavarians.

The Frenchman himself heated the oven. Wenger appeared on beIN Sports last night, replying to a question when he was asked if he would take over at Bayern:

“Of course,” responded the Arsenal legend, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

“Coaching is what was my whole life until now. Everybody who has coached will tell you the same.

“So of course, yes. I was responsible from 33 years of age and I coached until 69 without interruption. And at a top level.”

It’s Bayern’s move now as they don’t have time to waste, especially with such an obvious option available.
