Vincent Kompany in Talks for Bayern Munich Managerial Role

As per Fabrizio Romano, Vincent Kompany is interested in taking over as manager of German Giants Bayern Munich. The Burnley manager has already received a direct call from FC Bayern board to be informed about his situation.

Bayern Munich Eye Kompany as Potential Manager After Turbulent Season

The German powerhouses are actively considering Kompany, who has emerged as an unexpected candidate to succeed Thomas Tuchel.

Burnley was led by the legendary player of Manchester City back to the Premier League, but this season the Clarets were thrown straight back down after finishing 19th in the standings with just 24 points.

Kompany would be making a huge step up if he joined Bayern after having spent two years at Turf Moor. He had previously managed the Belgian team Anderlecht.

Bayern have also had a difficult season by not winning the Bundesliga title for the first time in twelve years.

Furthermore, despite making a high-profile acquisition of England captain Harry Kane in the summer, Bayern finished the season without a trophy, a feat not seen since the 2011–12 campaign.

After numerous disappointments, the German giants’ hunt for a new manager has resembled a wild goose chase.

Bayern were earlier interested in making Xabi Alonso as their next manager but the Spaniard has chosen to stay. Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen had an amazing Bundesliga title-winning campaign, which also saw the first-time German champions go the full season undefeated.

Bayern in Search of Manager With Tuchel’s Uncertain Future

The former Chelsea manager is reportedly eager to return to the Premier League after leading Bayern for 14 months,

If Tuchel leaves Bayern, he will enter his next position having been denied a title at one of the biggest teams in the world, one that has become accustomed to taking home trophies.

The six-time European champions were ousted in the DFB-Pokal by Saarbrucken, a team competing in the German third division, and finished third in the Bundesliga, 17 points behind champions Bayer Leverkusen.

Before two late goals from Real Madrid in the second leg of their semifinal match, Bayern appeared to be certain to secure their spot in the Champions League final.

Many people criticized Tuchel for his choice to replace Kane in the 85th minute, with Bayern leading 1-0 at the Bernabeu, before Real Madrid scored in the 88th and 89th minutes.
