Mourinho emerges as potential contender to replace Tuchel at Bayern Munich

Thomas Tuchel’s future at Bayern Munich is in doubt following a string of poor results, with Jose Mourinho reportedly being considered as a potential replacement.

The German giants have endured a turbulent start to the year, losing three of their last five Bundesliga matches, including a 3-0 thrashing at Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Tuchel’s position has been under scrutiny since the end of January, when Bayern were beaten at home by Werder Bremen. The recent setback in Leverkusen has only intensified the criticism, with some questioning his tactics and team selections.

Mourinho Learning German amid Bayern links

According to  Mundo Deportivo, Mourinho is one of the options Bayern are considering if they decide to part ways with Tuchel. The Portuguese manager is said to be interested in the job and has even started learning German in anticipation of a potential approach from the Bavarian club.

Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Roma in January. He has previously managed some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Benfica, Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Tottenham.

Other potential candidates

Other names that have been mentioned as potential replacements for Tuchel include Julian Nagelsmann, Erik ten Hag, and Mauricio Pochettino.

Bayern’s next game is a crucial Champions League clash against Lazio on February 23. The result of that match could have a major bearing on Tuchel’s future at the club.
