Ex-Bayern star makes huge admission about Mourinho

Ex-Bayern Munich star makes huge admission as potential Mourinho appointment claim emerges

November 4, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The former midfield powerhouse has stirred the rumors about the Bavarians potentially appointing his old boss.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has poured more fuel on claims which suggest that Jose Mourinho could take charge of his old club following Niko Kovac's sack. The ex-German international has made a shock admission that the Portuguese manager 'always asked about' the Bavarian during their time together at Manchester United.

An abysmal performance in Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Eintracht Frankfurt resulted in Bayern Munich suffering a 5-1 away loss - the side's biggest defeat in more than a decade. Less than 24 hours after the drabbing, the Allianz Arena outfit parted ways with manager Niko Kovac who was only appointed at the beginning of last season.

The search for a new manager is now on and a host of top European manager have been named among the likely candidates to take over the reins at the German outfit. One such is former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who since departing from the latter in December 2018, is yet to return the dugout. Earlier this year, the 56-year-old revealed that he was studying a number of languages including German, hinting at the prospect of taking over as the headcoach of a club in the Bundesliga.

New reports emerging from Germany have suggested that the two-time Champions League winner could be considered for the managerial role at Bayern Munich with other top European managers sighted as well. Bastian Schweinsteiger, 35, who spent his last season at Manchester United as a disciple of Mourinho has stirred the emerging speculations by revealing that he had a keen interest in the Bundesliga.

"I can imagine Mourinho in Germany," he said in an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

"I remember he was always asking me about Bayern and the Bundesliga. During our away games, there was always Bundesliga on TV. "He really knew every single player, even from the smaller teams. He was also learning German."

Among the other names cited as potential successors for the departed Kovac includes former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
