Joachim Löw, who is traveling with the German national team to Russia in the beginning of June, told ZDF (via Goal.com) that he has no intention of succeeding Jupp Heynckes at Bayern Munich. Löw said that he has “other worries than Bayern” and is currently focused on defending the German national team’s World Cup title this summer. It’s kein Thema, i.e. “not a topic.”

According to a Kicker article, Bayern Munich—who moved late to sign Borussia Dortmund's former coach, Thomas Tuchel—actually never seriously considered the World-Cup-winning coach, conking out all the speculations linked with Jogi and Die Roten. Löw was similarly linked with Arsenal as one of the possible successors of Arsene Wenger—but this is, according to Löw, also a no-go.

Reschke: Bayern further along than thought

Bayern’s former technical director and current sporting director of VfB Stuttgart, Michael Reschke meanwhile expressed his confidence that Bayern will find a solution soon. Talking to Sky Sport News (via Abendzeitung), Reschke said “They will have a clear plan. I am absolutely convinced of it.”

I know the situation at Bayern Munich quite well; I know the people involved, particularly Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness, very well. I’m sure that they are further along with a solution than many believe.
