Bayern new coach in weeks
Bayern Munich want to find a successor to sacked coach Carlo Ancelotti within the next two weeks, club president Uli Hoeness said on Friday.
Ancelotti was abruptly dismissed on Thursday in the wake of Bayern’s 3-0 Champions League loss at Paris Saint-Germain the previous night.
Hoeness told German radio station FFH, “We’re not under any pressure, but after the two-week [international] break we want to have a solution.”
Assistant coach Willy Sagnol, the ex-France international, will be in charge of the team for Sunday’s Bundesliga outing at Hertha Berlin.
Local media suggest two Ger- man managers, Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann, could be in the frame to replace the Italian.
