Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel had been under huge pressure at the Allianz Arena after overseeing three defeats in a week at the German giants, and he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after they have failed to keep up with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. It’s no surprise that football betting sites had already been pricing up a market on who might replace the manager.

With the likes of main title rival Xabi Alonso, Zinedine Zidane, Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp in the running for the job, according to UK betting sites, there is no shortage of star power available to Bayern. Roberti De Zerbi had been well backed in the role as favourite, but it then appeared that former Julian Nagelsmann, who was surprisingly sacked last season, would be returning to the fold. He was the odds-on favourite to replace Tuchel for a couple of days before news broke that he had signed a new contract with Germany to remain manager until 2026. That meant that Roberto De Zerbi was back as favourite, while Zinedine Zidane has shortened significantly on the market. It now appears as if Ralf Rangnick could be the chosen candidate, as he has gone from not being on the market to even-money favourite in the last day. He has extensive experience managing in Germany and is currently in charge of the Austria national team after an ill-fated stint with Manchester United.

Roberto De Zerbi Among Favourites After Nagelsmann Ruled Out

One beneficiary of Xabi Alonso's decision to stay with Bayer Leverkusen appears to be Brighton's Roberto De Zerbi, who shortened significantly in recent weeks to lead the market with most new betting sites ahead of surprise former Bayern managers in Hansi Flick and Julian Nagelsmann. It now appeared as if the Bayern board had performed a U-turn on reappointing Nagelsmann, but he will now stay with Germany, clearing the way for De Zerbi potentially.

Could Hansi Flick Return to the Club?

Former Bayern player Hansi Flick managed the team for just 19 months, but in that time, he led them seven trophies, including a Champions League title. He then left his role to take up the manager’s job with the German national team, which was a far less successful venture.

Bayern have previous for returning to old managers who have had success in the past, with Jupp Heynckes having two very successful spells at the club. Although seen as an outsider with most betting sites, he could be one to watch on the market.

Is Mourinho Big Enough Name for Bayern?

Jose Mourinho was regarded as among the best managers in the world during his reigns with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. However, after his time with Manchester United, Tottenham and Roma since, his star has fallen somewhat. He is available after being sacked by Roma earlier this season, but the early odds suggest he could be a surprise contender for the Bayern job.

Could Zidane Be Tempted Back to Management?

Zinedine Zidane has been linked with many of the top football management vacancies around the world since his departure from the Real Madrid helm in 2021. In two spells with the Madrid giants, Zidane won 11 trophies, including three Champions League titles.

However, it has long been believed that he is waiting for Didier Deschamps to step down as France manager so he can take on that role. The current odds with new betting sites suggest he might have got tired of waiting and could be interest in a return to the dugout.

Xabi Alonso Rules Himself Out

In his first full season in charge of Bayer Leverkusen, former Liverpool and Real Madrid star Xabi Alonso is pulling up trees in Germany. Leverkusen are the champions elect in Germany, 13 points clear of Bayern Munich.

Bayern have had a hard time convincing Alonso to move. Alonso was the favourite with most betting apps until he decided to stay at Leverkusen. This is even as Bayern aren’t the only giant looking for a new manager. Barcelona’s next manager and Liverpool’s next manager aren’t known with incumbents Xavi and Jurgen Klopp, respectively, leaving in the summer.
