Ralf Rangnick, Max Allegri & Arséne Wenger on Bayern Munich’s shortlist to replace sacked Niko Kovac

Arséne Wenger, Ralf Rangnick, Erik ten Hag and Massimiliano Allegri have been shortlisted by Bayern Munich bosses as their next head coach following the sacking of Niko Kovac, according to Christian Falk via The Guardian.

Kovac and Bayern parted ways on Sunday evening after their 5-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, capping off a string of poor performances which put the Croatian’s future at the club in doubt.

The 48-year-old won the league and cup double in his first season but failure to do well in the Champions League put pressure on Kovac.

According to The Guardian, Rangnick is frontrunner for the job but currently holds the role as the head of sport and development at Red Bull.

Wenger and Allegri are both without coaching jobs whilst ten Hag would be open to managing Bayern Munich, but not until the summer, according to Sky Germany.
