MEDIA: He's the top candidate to replace Ancelotti!

year ago

Thomas Tuchel is reportedly in the frame to replace Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich.

Ancelotti was relieved of his duties on Thursday following a 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.

According to football journalist Rafael Hernandez, Ancelotti's predecessor Pep Guardiola believed Tuchel would make a strong replacement for him prior to the Italian's appointment.

Tuchel's Dortmund were only able to finish third last season as they were leapfrogged by RB Leipzig, but they managed to win the DFB-Pokal.

In his first season with BVB the team finished second, 10 points behind Bayern but 18 clear of Bayer Leverkusen, and finished runners-up in the DFB-Pokal after Munich beat them on penalties in the final.

He previously spent five years with Mainz, where his best campaign saw them finish fifth in 2011.

Tuchel is between jobs after leaving Dortmund at the end of last season, and Bayern are one of the biggest clubs in the world, so it may seem a no-brainer if they come calling.
