Coach To Snub Bayern Munich For Arsenal
In-Demand Head Coach To Snub Bayern Munich for Arsenal
Bayern Munich are set to miss out on Thomas Tuchel after it was revealed the coach is in talks to take over at Arsenal.
The former Borussia Dortmund head coach has been strongly tipped with a move to Bayern when Jupp Heynckes' interim stay with the Bavarian giants expires at the end of the current campaign.
Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus believes Tuchel would be the clear favourite for the position at the Allianz Arena but claims the tactician is already in contact with the Gunners over succeeding Arsene Wenger for the 2018/19 campaign.
"You know, I'm a journalist too, we have to make headlines every day," Matthaus told Omnisport following Saturday's friendly match between Liverpool and Bayern legends at Anfield.
"I think Thomas Tuchel can be the favourite [to take over at Bayern Munich], [the] ex-coach from Borussia Dortmund, but I know he's in touch with Arsenal and nobody knows what happens behind the doors."
