Bayern Munich’s dressing room unanimously backs Zinedine Zidane

In the hunt for a new coach to replace Thomas Tuchel, Bayern Munich has been linked to several managers, including Zinedine Zidane. And some of the players are quite happy about that…

“Big European club seeking new coach.” This could be the headline for Liverpool, Barcelona, or even Bayern Munich. Indeed, Jürgen Klopp, Xavi, and Thomas Tuchel will no longer be at the helm of their respective clubs next season. For the latter, this is not a surprise. In March 2023, he was chosen by the Munich management to lead the new project in place. All while negotiating behind the back of Julian Nagelsmann, who didn’t really see it coming. Less than a year later, TT has finally failed. Despite a Bundesliga title last season, he has multiplied failures, notably in the German Cup and in the league this season.

He can still save his record with a Champions League. Then, it will be time to turn the ephemeral Tuchel page and open a new chapter. But with which coach? Since the official announcement of the departure of the former Chelsea coach on February 21, many names have come out of the hat. Two months later, we are not necessarily very clear on the subject. On the other hand, what we do know is who will not come. Priority of the tenants of the Allianz Arena, Xabi Alonso has preferred to decline the invitation and continue the adventure hand in hand with Bayer Leverkusen. Cited as a plan B, Ralf Rangnick, highly appreciated by sports director Max Eberl, will not come either.

Nagelsmann Returns Ruled Out, Zidane Gathers Support

Just like Julian Nagelsmann. For a few days, a return of the former coach, fired like a dirty rag, was mentioned. Finally, he has decided to continue as Germany coach until 2026. Another blow for Bayern Munich, where he had many supporters, especially in the dressing room. Contrary to what has been said here and there, several players in the group get along very well with him and were not against his return. Quite the contrary. And there is another technician who has the favor of the German locker room. This is Zinedine Zidane. The Munich players are very excited about the idea of being coached by the Frenchman, we have been told.

He is even unanimous in discussions on the subject. His experience at the highest level, his aura and his many qualities are appreciated. But what about the management of the Rekordmeister? Concerning him, we have heard just about everything. Bayern Munich would be interested for some. Bild has even mentioned a possible duo with Franck Ribéry as assistant. For others, like Sky Germany, there was never any question of recruiting him. Information maintained after the announcement last weekend by Marca of serious contacts between the Zidane clan and the Bavarians. Ditto according to Mundo Deportivo, which indicates that he is close to Munich. According to our information, Bayern Munich appreciates his profile and is studying his case.

Even if ZZ, whose position on this track is unknown, does not master the language. Although he may not be the favorite, his name was clearly mentioned during discussions about the future coach. But according to the German press, one of the priority leads currently leads to Roberto De Zerbi (Brighton). Whatever happens, Bayern Munich continues to look for the rare pearl while trying to finish the season well, especially in the Champions League. This is the current priority of the Bavarians, who hope to go all the way and save their year with a major title in Europe under the orders of Thomas Tuchel. A coach whose succession is visibly far from being settled and gives some headaches to the leaders, who are used to anticipating.
