Rose jokes about Bayern’s coach search: ‘When Max calls, I always answer’

Although Marco Rose has not been a coaching candidate at FC Bayern so far, the coach from Leipzig was asked about a possible engagement with the record champions. The answer was very clear.

After the departure of Ralf Rangnick, Bayern must reopen the search for a new coach. The list of potential candidates has thinned out considerably in recent weeks.

The name Marco Rose has not yet been mentioned by the record champions and will not be according to his own statements: “I think FC Bayern can do quite well without Marco Rose,” he explained on Thursday when asked about the complicated search for a coach in Munich.

Even if his old acquaintance Max Eberl were to come, Rose made it clear that he is not interested in the coaching job in Munich: “If Max calls, I always answer. Then I ask him how things are going, what it looks like on Tegernsee, how things are going. I would like him to quickly come up with a suitable solution, so that Germany can be sure that our top club, our international flagship Bayern Munich, has a coach again and that there will be no more speculation.”

While Munich have had to endure ridicule and scorn from all sides following Rangnick’s cancellation, Rose made it clear that the search for Thomas Tuchel’s successor is not a done deal: “The market in which we are talking about FC Bayern is not simple . Still, I am sure that a good solution will be found.”

The exciting question in Munich now is: which candidate will succeed Rangnick? According to Uli Hoeneß, Munich has not had any concrete negotiations with other coaches.

As transfer insider Fabrizio Romano reports, FCB still have one or two names on their list. One thing is clear: coaches who were not really discussed intensively at the Isar in recent weeks could also come into the picture. In particular, non-associated options such as Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane or José Mourinho could now become a concrete topic.
