FC Bayern is thinking about Unai Emery

Who will coach FC Bayern next season? After the announcement of the separation from Thomas Tuchel, the search for a successor for the German record champions is in full swing. According to a report, the Spaniard Unai Emery is also on the Munich candidate list.

Many prominent names have already been traded on Säbener Straße, including Xabi Alonso, Jürgen Klopp, Hansi Flick and Zinedine Zidane. According to “kicker” information, Unai Emery, who is currently shaking up the English Premier League with Aston Villa, is also in the sights of Bayern bosses.

It is said that the Bundesliga team, which recently got into trouble, is following the 52-year-old’s development. Emery has won a total of four Europa League titles with FC Sevilla (3x) and FC Villarreal (1x), and in 2022 he also knocked FC Bayern with the “Yellow Submarine” out of the Champions League.

There are conflicting reports about the length of his contract with Aston Villa, but Emery’s working paper is likely to be valid until at least 2025. The team manager of the surprise fourth place is unlikely to be available without a transfer fee.

Emery doesn’t lack international experience, but the Basque doesn’t speak German – a knock-out criterion for possible Bayern coaches in the past.

FC Bayern: Sebastian Hoeneß also an alternative?

In addition to Emery, Sebastian Hoeneß is also considered an option for FC Bayern. The 41-year-old’s work at VfB Stuttgart should not only impress his uncle Uli.

Nevertheless, the Munich native is probably not one of the favorites. The “kicker” raised the question of whether the job with the record champions wouldn’t come “too early” for Hoeneß.

The FCB officials are more likely to go all out with Xabi Alonso. The successful coach from Bayer Leverkusen, who is said to have an exit clause, would allegedly cost 15 to 20 million euros.

Liverpool FC is also busy getting involved with the former world and European champions. Jürgen Klopp is leaving the Reds after the season.
