Bayern Munich Eyeing Potential Successors for Thomas Tuchel

In a surprising turn of events, Bayern Munich is considering alternatives for their managerial position, with Thomas Tuchel's future at the club under scrutiny. According to sources, Liverpool target Xabi Alonso is currently the frontrunner to replace Tuchel if Bayern opts for a managerial change in the summer. Additionally, the club is exploring the possibility of appointing Zinedine Zidane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The pressure on Tuchel intensified following Bayern's recent 3-2 defeat to Bochum, leaving the team eight points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen. This loss marked Bayern's third consecutive defeat, raising concerns about their performance under Tuchel's leadership, especially after their disappointing 1-0 loss to Lazio in the Champions League last-16 first leg.

Despite facing their first trophyless season in over a decade, Bayern's current plan is to assess Tuchel's performance at the end of the campaign. The club's hierarchy has decided to stand by Tuchel for now, with the former Chelsea and PSG manager not contemplating resignation.

However, preparations are underway behind the scenes to identify potential successors to Tuchel. Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen's head coach, is reportedly a preferred option internally. Another notable candidate is ex-Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, whose experience and success in European football make him an attractive prospect for Bayern.

In a surprising twist, ex-Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also emerged as a potential interim solution for Bayern if a change is necessary before the end of the season. Bayern's sporting director, Christoph Freund, has been closely monitoring Solskjaer's career trajectory for years, although no concrete discussions have taken place regarding his potential appointment.

Solskjaer has been without a managerial role since his departure from Manchester United in November 2021, making his potential return to management with Bayern Munich an intriguing prospect. As Bayern navigates through a challenging period, the club's decision regarding Tuchel's future and his potential successors will undoubtedly shape their trajectory in the coming seasons.
