SPOX claim that Bayern Munich have already taken the call to sack head coach Niko Kovac at the end of the season.
After having a lackluster first half to the season and after exiting the Champions League very early to the hands of Liverpool, Bayern might have thought that this season was going to see no silverware. But now the side are away from completing a double as they just need a draw vs Frankfurt to clinch Bundesliga while a German Cup final is still awaiting them.
But even if Niko Kovac eventually guides his team to a domestic double this season, German’s internet publication SPOX claim that a decision has already been taken to sack Kovac at the end of the season.
It has been touted that the training methods that Kovac instructs are too monotonous and lack “tactical finesse”. Apparently even many of the players that include Joshua Kimmich have turned their back against Kovac.
SPOX also claimed that current PSV coach Mark Van Bommel is in contention to take up the job having finished second in the Eredivisie this season. Also he happens to be Bayern’s former player.
While Bayern’s CEO outrightly denied any of this, SPOX stood by their news with their editor-in-chief, Martin Volkmar, saying that they stood by their story.
