Bayern Munich Deny Talks With Arsene Wenger
Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern Munich's sporting director, has denied that they have been in talks with former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
Salihamidzic also confirmed that Bayern boss Niko Kovac will still be in charge for their next league game away to Werder Bremen.
Sources in Germany yesterday told Sky Sports that there have been no negotiations between the German giants and the 69-year-old.
Bayern swept aside Benfica in the Champions League last night trashing them 5-1, and despite their poor form in the league Salihamidzic is happy with the team's improvement.
"There was 100% no contact with Arsene Wenger. We will travel to Bremen with Niko Kovac as our manager and we will win.
"We have often failed to hold a focused performance for the whole 90 minutes. But we have done really well (against Benfica) and we can now build on that.
"The way the team took responsibility made me happy, and also how Bayern Munich played. But I am also happy for the coach and the club."
However, with Bayern Munich fifth in the league seven points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, evens says Kovac is the next manager to leave his post with Paddy Power.
Sky Sports are also reporting that the Frenchman would prefer an executive role rather than going back into management
Although, 6/4 says Wenger is the next Bayern manager, followed by Jupp Heynckes (7/2), who has already had four spells in Munich (one as caretaker), while Antione Conte (11/2), Zinedine Zidane (6/1) are also in the running.
