Why Bayern Opts For Thomas Tuchel Ahead Of Arsene Wenger


Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been shunned by German champions Bayern Munich as they shop for a new manager.

Bayern Munich sacked their manager Niko Kovac at the weekend as he paid the price for the heavy defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Bavarian giants were beaten 5-1 by the Europa League campaigners and that proved to be his last game in charge of the team.

According to Sky Germany, Bayern Munich have enquired about the availability of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel.

The Bundesliga champions have opted for the German tactician ahead of other potential candidates like Arsene Wenger, Ralf Rangnick, Maximiliano Allegri and Jose Mourinho.

Thomas Tuchel has been the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager since the start of last year.

He won the league title for PSG in the last campaign.

Ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is thought to be a strong contender for the Bayern Munich job.

Wenger has not been in the dugout since leaving Arsenal in the summer of 2018.

The Frenchman spent almost 22 years in North London before making way for Unai Emery last summer.

He won three Premier League titles for the Gunners during his time at the club including the unbeaten run achieved in 2004.
