A humiliating 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt over the weekend saw the Bayern Munich board finally send Niko Kovac packing, but just who will they replace him with now?
It’s fair to say that Niko Kovac’s dismissal came as no great surprise to anybody considering the huge pressure he was under in the last few weeks. And Saturday’s disastrous defeat proved to be last straw for the Bayern board.
While the Bundesliga champions have won 10 of their 15 games this season, the performances were poor under Kovac. The board, therefore, had no other choice but to give the Croatian his marching orders.
With a Champions League match against Olympiakos and a Der Klassiker with arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund coming up this week, however, Bayern must quickly regroup and find a new gaffer.
So, who could be up to the task of leading the mighty Bavarians?
