Lopetegui cited as possible Kovac replacement at Bayern Munich
The Bavarian side are unhappy with Niko Kovac on the Bayern bench and have set their sights on Lopetegui and Ajax boss Ten Hag as potential replacements.
Bayern Munich have singled out Julen Lopetegui as a potential suitor should the German side decide to sack Croatian Nico Kovac at the end of the campaign. Despite the Bavarian side poised to win the 2018/19 Bundesliga title, Kovac has failed to impress the board of directors and club supporters during the campaign and even securing a league and DFB Pokal double may not be enough for the Croat top secure his future on the Bayern bench.
Bayern have reportedly asked former player Toni Kroos for his opinion on the Basque coach with positive feedback coming back from the current Real Madrid midfielder. Other names linked with the Bayern position should Kovac depart are current Ajax coach Ten Haag and PSG's Thomas Tuchel.
