Bayern Munich Manager Under Immense Pressure Following Another Bad Result
Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac is under severe pressure as his side threw away a 3-1 lead at home to Dusseldorf yesterday.
A goal from Niklas Sule and double from Thomas Muller separated by a goal from Dodi Lukebakio gave Bayern a 3-1 lead.
However, two late goals in the 77th and 93rd minutes from Lukebakio salvaged a 3-3 draw at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern are fifth in the Bundesliga, nine points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, making Kovac even money to be the next manager to leave his post.
Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso was the favourite at evens, however, his odds have now drifted out to 13/5 due to Bayern's poor results.
Arsene Wenger, who is linked with both positions, is favourite to be the next Bayern manager at 11/4, while Jupp Heynckes, who has already had four spells in Munich (one as caretaker) is 10/3 to come out of retirement for the position.
It would be Wenger's first job since leaving Arsenal at the end of last season following 22-years at the North London club, another manager looking for his next job since stepping down at the end of last term is Zinedine Zidane.
Zizou left Real Madrid at the end of last season after winning three consecutive Champions Leagues and is 7/2 to take the Bayern hotseat.
Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte (11/2) and ex-PSG boss Laurent Blanc (15/2) are also in the running.
