BAYERN MUNICH – Tuchel is now the favourite to become the new coach

Former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel is now the favourite to become Bayern Munich’s new head coach when interim boss Jupp Heynckes steps down next summer, reports Bild.

The 44-year-old, who has previously been touted as a replacement for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, has been out of work since leaving BVB at the end of last season.

Bayern are searching for a permanent successor after sacking Carlo Ancelotti earlier this month.
