According to information from BILD there had been a conversation on Wednesday between Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (64) and Arsène Wenger (70). Now the refusal!
On request from BILD FC Bayern announced: "Arsene Wenger has called Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday afternoon and basically signaled interest in the coaching post at Bayern. Bayern appreciate Arsène Wenger very much for his work as coach at Arsenal, but he is no option as a coach at Bayern Munich. "
That comes as a surprise. Because after BILD information Wenger wanted to work with interim coach Hansi Flick (54). He had a solid debut on Wednesday night with the 2-0 in the Champions League against Olympiacos Piraeus – but not more.
Wenger had said at the Qatar TV channel "beIN Sports" about a Bayern commitment yet: "Training is my life. Of course I'm interested. "
Now it is not excluded that Flick may stay longer than the first two games (Piraeus and Dortmund). Because in the summer of 2020, the record champion could then possibly bring Erik ten Hag (49 / Ajax Amsterdam / contract until 2022) or Thomas Tuchel (46 / Paris St. Germain / contract until 2021) to Munich.
Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic (42) on Wednesday evening after beating Piraeus: "We will calmly, without pressure, choose the coach, who in our opinion is the right one. I think Hansi is the right coach for us at this moment. He is now a coach until further notice and we will see everything else. "
Bayern coach search – she continues …
