After much speculation, Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann got his man as the club hired former Hoffenheim goalkeeping coach Michael Rechner. The club issued a brief statement on the move:
FC Bayern have signed Michael Rechner as goalkeeping coach. The 42-year-old moves to Munich from TSG Hoffenheim. Rechner was goalkeeping coordinator at TSG from 2008 and oversaw the first-team goalkeepers as of 2015.
Rechner, of course, takes over for Toni Tapalovic, whose exit is at the heart of the drama going on between the club and injured goalkeeper and team captain Manuel Neuer.
