Jupp Heynckes has turned the Bavarians' fortunes around

What a turnaround a change of management can make! Bayern Munich is the embodiment of this very event.

Struggling to stick to a footballing philosophy under Italian great, Carlo Ancelotti, Jupp Heynckes was brought out of retirement to steady the behemoth that is Bayern and bring it's season back on track and boy did it work like a charm!

And while all looks settled for this season, everyone is looking to what the future holds for Bayern once Heynckes steps down in the summer.

While all Bayern fans would want him to continue for one more year, 'Osram', as he is affectionately known has made it pretty clear that he has no intentions of continuing beyond this season.

Let's take a look at 5 managers who could potentially be at the helm of Bayern Munich come June 2018.

#5 Julian Nagelsman

Only people who follow the Bundesliga would have heard of or know of Julian Nagelsmann.

At only 30 years of age, he has been a revelation of sorts. After having his playing career cut short due to injury, he studied business management and sports science before entering the management world.

Last season, he sensationally led Hoffenheim to a 4th place finish and thus ensuring them a place in this season's Champions League, a first in the club's history.


While a good manager, age, and experience is something that would go against him when it comes to managing one of the best clubs in the world.

He is bound to take over at Bayern somewhere down the line, maybe just not now. Then again you can't set this in stone and a young manager with a dynamic footballing philosophy could revitalize the team.
