We’re not even two months into the season and one of the biggest managerial jobs in club football has become available, after Bayern Munich dismissed manager Carlo Ancelotti this week.
The Italian’s sacking inevitably opened the door to speculation from punters about who will replace him, with the early favourite being 30 year old Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann.
After guiding Liverpool to fourth in the table last time out, Jurgen Klopp has found himself ‘under a touch of pressure’ this season, and ‘he’s fourth in the betting at 14/1 to return to Germany and take the reins at the Allianz.’
Betway’s Alan Alger revealed to SBC that he believes the German champions may not be far off of already securing their new manager.
Alger said: “A stuttering start to Bayern’s season was dealt another blow when losing 3-0 against PSG last night and that was enough to see the club’s hierarchy pull the trigger on Carlo Ancelotti.
“The German giants will be looking for a replacement as soon as possible and the betting suggests they might not be far away from getting their man.
“Assistant Willy Sagnol has been thrown into the mix at 3/1 and Thomas Tuchel, without a job since parting with Dortmund, is in the running at 4/1. While those two seem to fit the bill nicely, Julian Nagelsmann has been the one for money from the off and now looks the most obvious man for the job at 1/3.
