Is Sebastian Hoeneß a candidate for the vacant FC Nürnberg job? (TZ)
After a spectacular debut season with Bayern Munich II in the 3.Liga, is Sebastian Hoeneß on the move already? Days after being linked to the Hoffenheim job, another job opens up and Hoeneß gets his name thrown into the ring there as well.
Following their near-relegation to the 3.Liga from the 2.Bundesliga, Nürnberg cleaned house. It is expected that the club will announce Dieter Hecking as the club’s new Sporting Director, and that he will look for a young coach to take over the side. Enter: 38 year old Sebastian Hoeneß.
Hoeneß leaving after only one season would be a big blow to Bayern II.
Lukas Mai drawing interest from Darmstadt (Liga-Zwei)
Recently, we looked at what the future holds for a lot of the talented youngsters at Bayern Munich. A day later, we have rumors about one of Bayern’s top talents. According to a report, Darmstadt are considering bringing in Lukas Mai on loan. The Bayern II centerback is ready for the next step in his development, and a loan is the perfect opportunity for him to get that experience.

Nico Feldhahn, Maximilian Zaiser, Michael Wagner all extend through next summer (FCBayern)
On Wednesday, Bayern II announced that Nico Feldhahn, Maximilian Zaiser, and Michael Wager all signed a contract extension to keep them in Munich through June 30, 2021.
Resigning the captain Feldhahn seem to a one year contract was expected. The 33 year old (he’ll be 34 in August) struggled at times to keep up with pace of play in the 3.Liga; however, with Bayern II expecting several departures this summer, having the experienced Feldfhahn around is a no-brainer.
Maximilian Zaiser only made five appearances last season with Bayern II, but those minutes came late in the season as Bayern II was chasing the 3.Liga title. He gives the club some depth in midfield. Michael Wagner moved up from the U-19 side this year and is expected to be the full time backup goalkeeper for Bayern II next season.
