Who will succeed Thomas Tuchel? Bayern Munich's coaching conundrum

The search for coach Thomas Tuchel's successor at Bayern Munich intensifies, with Roberto De Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ralf Rangnick leading the pack.

With Tuchel's impending departure from Bayern Munich, the club have been scouting for potential replacements, considering various candidates for the coveted coaching position.

Initially, Xabi Alonso emerged as a prime contender, but his decision to stay put at Bayer Leverkusen prompted Bayern to explore other options.

Brighton's Roberto De Zerbi has emerged as a prominent figure in the discussion. The Times sugges that Bayern's interest in him has gained momentum, with Max Eberl, a key figure on the Bayern board, showing particular interest in the Italian tactician.

Julian Nagelsmann, the current head coach of the German national team, is also in the running. Sky Germany reports that talks have been held regarding his possible return to Bayern, especially with key figures from his previous tenure now absent from the club's management.

However, doubts linger regarding Nagelsmann's ability to rectify past mistakes, casting a shadow over his potential reappointment.

Meanwhile, the German Football Association's desire to extend Nagelsmann's contract complicates matters for Bayern, adding another layer of uncertainty to the situation.

Kicker reports that Ralf Rangnick has emerged as another viable option. His success, command of the German language, and demonstrated capability in squad rebuilding make him an attractive prospect for Bayern.

Despite initial talks with Rangnick, reports suggest that Bayern's enthusiasm for him is tempered at present.

As Bayern navigates through the complexities of securing a new head coach it will be interesting to see who will ultimately take the helm of one of Europe's most prestigious clubs.
