Per a press release from FCBayern.com, Tim Walter, coach of the Bayern Munich U23 (Bayern Munich II) team that competes in Regionalliga Bayern, will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract ends.

After serious discussions in recent days, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and Tim Walter, the coach of U23 FC Bayern Munich, have agreed not to extend the end of the season expiring contract. The 42-year-old football teacher came from Karlsruher SC in 2015, led the U17 juniors of FC Bayern to the German championship title 2017 and is currently in second place with the second team in the Regionalliga Bayern.

Walter has led the squad to a very successful season that has the team in second place, behind only Munich 1860. In fact, the Bayern II has lost only once in its last 18 Regionalliga Bayern games. As far as players Walter has impacted, Kwasi Okyere Wriedt has 16 goals for Bayern II, while Alexander Nollenberger has 11, and Milos Pantovic has 10. All three players rank among the top 21 goal scorers in the league.

Walter gave the following comment on his pending departure:

I had a wonderful time at Bayern, crowned by winning the German championship with the U17 last year, which we finally got back to Munich after ten years. In the current season we are on the right track with the youngest second team of all time at FC Bayern—both in terms of sporting success and the training of talents for the first team and as a Bundesliga player. Now my full concentration is the rest of the season games. After that, it’s time to take on a new challenge.

After his success at Bayern, Walter seems poised to take a step forward and upward in his coaching career. Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic thanked Walter for his work and wished him well in the future. Just yesterday it was reported that Uli Hoeneß wanted to bring Mehmet Scholl back into the club. Perhaps this could be Scholl’s landing spot.
