After the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti everyone expected Bayern Munich to name former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel as their coach. Instead, Bayern decided to go with a familiar figure, naming Jupp Heynckes as interim coach until the end of the season.

According to reports, Bayern president Uli Hoeness and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge couldn’t agree on who should take over so they decided to compromise until they decide on permanent coach next year.

When asked about the future Bayern coach, Rummenigge said: "Firstly, we have decided not to comment on this subject in 2017, at the earliest in 2018. We have nine months and we will take our time to make a decision. However, just to be clear we haven’t decided against Thomas Tuchel.”

Making it very clear Tuchel still a candidate. It’s going to be an interesting summer.
