Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is a possible candidate to be named the head coach of Bayern Munich. The Frenchman is known to speak fluent German and with a lot of managerial experience, he is reckoned as the perfect fit for Bayern Munich.

The German club are looking for a new manager following Niko Kovac's sacking. The Croatian tactician became the manager of Bayern Munich last summer and he led them to win 2 domestic trophies in his first season at the club.

However, his last match with Bayern Munich was a 5-1 loss at the home of Eintracht Frankfurt. Following the defeat, Bayern Munich are in the 4th place with 18 points after playing 10 matches in Bundesliga this season.

Former AC Milan and Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri and ex-Schalke 04 manager Ralf Rangnick are also in contention for the managerial job at Bayern.

A surprising candidate for this job is Ajax Amsterdam manager Erik Ten Hag, who led the Dutch club to a domestic double and a trip to the Champions League semifinals last season.
