Another member of the Bayern Munich coaching staff is pondering an exit.
After Hansi Flick had an announcement on Saturday that he wanted to leave the club, assistant coach Miroslav Klose indicated that he also was not happy with the situation at Bayern Munich. In particular, Klose has issues with how communication at Bayern Munich and the lack of “respect” shown.
All of that together has reportedly caused Hermann “Tiger” Gerland to reconsider his future with Bayern Munich as well (per kicker as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia):
Hermann Gerland (contract until 2022) is considering whether to continue or leave. Miroslav Klose (contract expires this summer) has not held any renewal talks and is likely to leave the club [Kicker] pic.twitter.com/MK5Y80rRUx— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) April 18, 2021
Gerland has held various roles with Bayern Munich consistently since 2009 and is known to be one of the more popular figures on the coaching staff. While there is no guarantee that a new coach would retain Gerland, it would likely be extremely unpopular if Gerland decided to stay and then was let go.
While people may still doubt how real the schism was between the front office and coaching staff, seeing a longtime coach like Gerland re-think his plans should be a clear indication of how serious things are at the moment.
