Bayern Munich board members have swiftly commenced the search for Niko Kovac’s replacement after parting ways with the manager on Sunday.
Kovac was shown the exit door by the Bavarians following an unexpected 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday and they have reportedly created a list of some managers capable of succeeding him at the Allianz Arena.
Former United manager José Mourinho is said to be leading the pack —ahead of former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri — as he has been without a club for 11 months.
Jose Mourinho has been preparing for Bundesliga job since his days at Old Trafford, that was the revelation made by former Germany star Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The former Germany captain revealed to Deutsche Welle that the Portuguese has a longtime interest in managing the Bavarians as he often asks questions about the Bundesliga Champions during his days at Old Trafford.
“I can imagine Mourinho in Germany. I remember he was always asking me about Bayern and the Bundesliga. During our away games, there was always Bundesliga on TV.
“He really knew every single player, even from the smaller teams. He was also learning German.” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the Portuguese manager is also linked with Arsenal’s job following Unai Emery’s unimpressive start to the season.
It remains to be seen who will the highly controversial Mourinho choose at the end of everything.
