Tuchel, on the verge of a new Bayern failure. The Germans are preparing the installation of Zinedine Zidane

Bayern Munich is about to lose its supremacy in the Bundesliga after 12 years, after suffering another defeat yesterday, 2-3 with Bochum. The Bavarians are on their third successive defeat, 0-3 to Leverkusen and 0-1 to Lazio in the Champions League, so Thomas Tuchel's chair is seriously shaking.

The bosses of the German team will have a meeting to discuss the situation of the coach, about whom the international press writes that if he is not fired now, he will surely leave at the end of the season. Bayern, 8 points behind the leader Leverkusen, started negotiations with three technicians with names in Europe.

Hansi Flick and Jose Mourinho, both free of contract, the former after the break with the German national team last autumn, the latter dismissed by Roma last month, are two options that Bayern's bosses have considered. But the favorite would be – surprise – Zinedine Zidane, writes Corriere dello Sport. The 51-year-old Frenchman, who won the Champions League three times in a row with Real Madrid in 2016, 2017 and 2018, has no further commitments from May 2021.
