This season has been a disaster for Liverpool. The Reds are scrapping for a top four finish in the wake of an unprecedented injury crisis, meanwhile the board are trying to rebuild trust after the ESL debacle. Thankfully, Liverpool fans can breathe a sigh of relief with Julian Nagelsmann reportedly set to take the Bayern Munich job.
Hansi Flick departure
The end of this season will see Hansi Flick leave his post as Bayern Munich manager.
The German coach won it all in his short spell in charge of the Bundesliga giants.
Flick’s record breaking sextuple will live long in the memory of fans with many surely heartbroken by his impending departure.
The BBC has reported that the reason for his leaving is due to a power struggle with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
The thinking is that Flick will take on the Germany job after the Euros.
The post is set to be available with Joachim Low announcing his intention to step down at the end of the competition.
Julian Nagelsmann takes Bayern Munich job
The question of who will succeed Flick has been a dominant news story in Germany.
It is the biggest job in club football in the country with a couple of standout candidates for the role.
According to Christian Falk, Julian Nagelsmann has agreed to take the Bayern Munich job.
The 33-year-old coaching prodigy will leave his post as Leipzig boss to take on the role with the Bundesliga giants.
The news will come as a body blow for Spurs fans who were hoping that the youthful gaffer would be taking over in North London following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
Liverpool fans’ relief
This news should come as a relief for Kopites.
There is no denying that Bayern Munich wanted Jürgen Klopp to take over.
The Reds’ boss has been the German side’s preferred long term target for some time now.
Despite the overtures Klopp has consistently said that he wants to see out his contract at Anfield.
However, the recent Super League scandal opened the door for this to change.
The owners disrespected and betrayed Jürgen Klopp when they signed up for the competition without informing him.
The boss had previously stated that he was against any such type of competition being set up.
Given the imminent vacancy at Bayern it would have been understandable if the boss wanted out after such treatment from FSG.
Thankfully, the role has been filled and we can rest easy.
