No surprise there! Out-of-work former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann emerges as favourite for Germany job after Hansi Flick sacking

  • Nagelsmann favourite to replace Flick
  • Flick sacked after Germany's loss to Japan
  • DFB also considering Louis van Gaal's name

WHAT HAPPENED? Nagelsmann, who parted ways with Bayern Munich in March this year, is currently the favourite candidate to become the new Germany manager, according to the BILD. After a humiliating defeat at the hands of Japan in an international friendly, former coach Hansi Flick was sacked by the German FA on Sunday.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: While Nagelsmann is currently out of work, he is still contracted with Bayern Munich as his deal expires in 2026. If DFB wants to hire the German coach, Bayern are likely to demand compensation in the region of €10-15 million.
