Nagelsmann odds head betting and next Bayern Munich manager tips
FootyOngive next Bayern Munich manager tips after Carlo Ancelotti is sacked following recent struggles.
After an intense Pep Guardiola regime, Bayern looked to bring in a manager with a more laid back approach to let the players breathe, after three seasons of information overload.
Initially, the Bavarian giants were liberated and the greater freedom on the field and practise pitches yielded solid results.
However, rumblings regarding the atmosphere at the Allianz Arena started to seep out of a normally watertight club.
Players reportedly felt they weren’t developing and Ancelotti’s hands-off approach started to irk.
So, after recent struggles the Munich hierarchy pulled the trigger and are now in search of a new man to occupy the dugout.
Here, we look at next Bayern Munich manager tips…
Julian Nagelsmann odds head market
Favourite to take over is 30-year-old Hoffenheim boss Nagelsmann, now 4/5 with BetVictor after being shorter in the immediate aftermath of Ancelotti’s axing.
Nagelsmann is a hugely impressive young coach who already has a track record of winning at Bundesliga level.
Nicknamed ‘Mini Mourinho’ by Tim Wiese, Nagelsmann guided Hoffenheim to safety in his first season in charge after taking over in February of 2016 with the club seven points adrift.
Their good run of play continued in the 2016/17 Bundesliga term, where they finished fourth and qualified for the Champions League.
Most recently, Nagelsmann made headlines yet again after his Hoffenheim side beat Bayern 2-0 earlier in the campaign.
Already touted as next Bayern boss before Ancelotti was sacked, the Munich hierarchy are said to be impressed by his progressive coaching methods, but could this job come too soon for Nagelsmann?
Senior players at the Allianz Arena may react adversely to a coach younger than them taking over.
Of his Hoffenheim roster, only skipper Eugen Polanski and a backup goalie are older – everyone else is under Nagelsmann’s age.
Nagelsmann and Tuchel have actually worked together at Augsburg, but possess different characters.
If Ancelotti began to annoy the Munich hierarchy, then the uncompromising Tuchel is likely to upset a few if he moves into the dugout.
Tuchel has seven seasons of top-flight managerial experience under his belt and already taken charge of a top German club.
Having left Borussia Dortmund after guiding them to DFB Pokal glory last term, he wouldn’t cost any compensation – unlike Nagelsmann.
However, Tuchel isn’t one to massage egos or remain loyal to veteran campaigners, such as Neven Subotic.
His relationship with that player broke down severely, though the Serbia defender has previous from his national team on that score.
Tuchel has moved to 7/4 from as far out as 8/1 recently in the next Bayern boss betting.
Former Munich right back Sagnol has managerial experience with France Under-21s and Bordeaux, but was brought in by Ancelotti as assistant to replace Paul Clement when he went to Swansea City.
Currently in interim charge at the Allianz, we could see a situation where Sagnol is named until the end of the season, when negotiations with Hoffenheim for Nagelsmann would be easier.
Sagnol knows the club well having spent nine seasons with the Bavarians, lifting five Bundesliga titles, the DFB Pokal four times and the Champions League while playing for Bayern.
He also has international pedigree, turning out in a World Cup final for France in 2006 after just missing out on Les Bleus’ winning vintage of 1998-2000.
However, Sagnol is a risk as he may be too closely associated with Ancelotti, though all depends on his relationship with the players.
Sagnol’s record with Bordeaux isn’t dreadful, but far from inspiring having finished 6th and then leaving Ligue 1 outfit languishing in mid-table in March 2016.
