Bayern sack Kovac

Bayern Munich management is not satisfied with head coach Niko Kovac and sacked him by mutual consent.

Last season, Bayern Munich took advantage of Borussia Dortmund’s failure in the end of the championship and once again took the title. But in the new season already Rekordmeister lost the Super Cup to the Black-and-Yellows and currently occupy fourth place, falling behind Leipzing and two Borussias.

Niko Kovac’s team lost points stably. The acting champions defeated only the outsiders Paderborn and Union Berlin in the last five encounters with a minimal score, having a tie with Augsburg and losing to Hoffenheim. But the last straw of patience was a miserable defeat in the tenth round to Eintracht. Bayern conceded five goals away, scoring only one.

Because of that, the club chairman of the board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge together with president Uli Hoeness discussed the future of the Croatian specialist, who previously worked in Bayern offender’s camp, Eintracht. The management, it seems, is going to apply plan B. As reported by Eurosport with a reference to Corriere dello Sport the men from Munich are considering the option with the Croat’s replacement with a former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

The latter has long been in Manchester United’s watch list, which experience even bigger problems with their state in the championship than Bayern. However, Rekordmeister are capable of offering a lot more, leaving Allegri a good margin of safety from the best players of Bundesliga, with whom Bayern constantly saturate their squad.

For Allegri, the option of moving to Allianz Arena is clearly preferable than Old Trafford. Despite the fact that the Mancunians can offer him a better contract, in Bayern, the Italian will have more chances to stay in office longer without making tremendous efforts. In view of the wide bench and the construction of high-quality defense, Bayern, even this season, can once again sit on the throne of Bundesliga, since in the German championship few teams can boast of good defense, while having such a strong attacking potential.
