It turns out Bayern Munich’s ‘Plan D’ also failed

It turns out Bayern Munich’s ‘Plan D’ also failed. The Bavarians reportedly approached Crystal Palace manager Oliver Glasner, 50, but were turned down.

“Bayern wanted Glassner, who has been in charge of Palace’s training since the end of February,” Germany’s Bild reported on Wednesday.

The Austrian coach is no stranger to the Bundesliga, having taken charge of Wolfsburg in 2019, before taking over at Eintracht Frankfurt in 2021.

He’s had some success. In the 2020-2021 season, Glassner led Wolfsburg to a fourth-place finish in the league and a UEFA Champions League (UCL) ticket, and he also led Frankfurt to an undefeated UEFA Europa League campaign. However, a poor finish to the 2022-2023 season and his fiery personality led to his departure by mutual consent from Frankfurt in the summer of 2023.

After a break, Glassner’s next stop was the Premier League. He took over from Roy Hodgson at Palace in February.

Palace made the right choice.

Palace have won six, drawn four, and lost three of their last 13 league games, including a win over Everton that Glassner managed remotely. Since April, 바카라사이트 they’ve gone on a six-match unbeaten run, beating Liverpool, Newcastle, West Ham, and Manchester United.

Bayern Munich, who were also in the market for a new manager, were also interested in Glassner. Bayern Munich will part ways with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season. Tuchel was originally contracted until the summer of 2025. However, after failing to win the Bundesliga for the first time in 12 seasons, poor performances, and rumors of discord within the team, the board decided to part ways before the season was over.

However, the club still hasn’t named a successor. The departure is known, but the arrival is still a mystery. Only Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso and Julian Nagelsmann have been linked to the Germany job, but both have failed. Plan C, Ralf Rangnick, was also unsuccessful as he announced that he would remain with the Austrian national team.

Zinedine Zidane, Aston Villa manager Unai Emery, and Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi were all rumored to be in the running for the job, but all of them ended up being rumors. According to local reports in Germany, there have been no serious contacts.

A desperate Bayern Munich have also been in contact with Glassner, who has been at his new club for less than three months.

“Bayern Munich have been looking for a new manager for three months, and they want Glassner,” Bild reports, “and Max Eberle and Christoph Proint have made enquiries to Palace. However, Palace immediately rejected them,” the report said.

“Proint and Glassner have known each other for several years,” the media outlet continued. They worked together at Salzburg.” ”It would have been surprising if Glassner had come to Bayern Munich. He has been very strong for Palace since the end of February. Palace are unbeaten since April 6,” he added.

The next Bayern Munich manager who was rejected is expected to be Hanji Flick. The former Bayern Munich boss won a record six trophies between 2019 and 2021, but was sacked just two years after leaving for the German national team. 메이저 토토사이트 According to Bild, Flick is the front-runner at the moment and is said to have strong support within the board of directors.
