Bayern Munich considering Zinedine Zidane and Arsene Wenger as replacements for Kovac (Bild)
According to Bild, Bayern’s top brass have been considering former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to replace Niko Kovac, should the need arise. Other candidates include the basic list of out-of-work managers you’ll see in any of these kinds of articles:
- Arsene Wenger
- Antonio Conte
- Ralph Hasenhuttl
- Laurent Blanc
Let’s file this under the “unlikely” category for now. Kovac clearly isn’t being sacked this international break, unless Uli Hoeness is a fan of reverse psychology.

Injuries for Die Mannschaft (Twitter)
Kai #Havertz and @ToniRuediger have pulled out of the Germany squad due to injury ❌@emrecan_ has been called up as a result #DieMannschaft pic.twitter.com/gP2QdO6gvN— Germany (@DFB_Team_EN) October 8, 2018
The injury to Kai Havertz is an especially acute blow, because Germany can hardly seem to find a goal these days. For now, Timo Werner will have to suffice.

A call for fan groups (BavarianFootballWorks.com)
We are trying something here at the Daily Schmankerl and need YOUR help. If you read my man Tommy Adams’ piece about his experience with the FCBNYC Fan Club (if you haven’t, SHAME ON YOU!), you could see how great the event was. So we want to highlight some of these wonderful groups that are out there globally and this is what we need from you:
- Name of the group
- Year founded
- Leadership (if you have people are kind of running the show)
- Meeting place
- Social media handles
I’d LOVE to be able to feature a different fan group every week this season. Maybe we can do it, maybe not...but only YOU can help decide the fate of this idea. Send your info to: firstname.lastname@example.org
