Wenger to Munich? Ex-Arsenal boss odds-on favourite for Germany move

Wenger in?


Paddy Power have slashed the odds on Arsene Wenger being appointed Bayern Munich manager, after Ralf Rangnick ruled himself out today.

The former Arsenal boss is now odds-on 1/2 favourite to be Niko Kovac’s replacement, in from 6/1 in the last hour.

That sees him leapfrog a familiar face – and old rival – in Jose Mourinho, who is now out to 5/1 to take the job.

Also in the running to take over from Kovac following his sacking on Sunday are former Juve and Milan boss Max Allegri (7/1), Ajax’s Erik ten Hag (10/1) – if he can lift his jaw from the floor after last night’s 4-4 Stamford Bridge shocker – and Kovac’s former assistant Hansi Flick 14/1, who is currently the interim coach.

Legendary Gooners’ gaffer Wenger has been putting his feet up since quitting the Emirates in 2018 but it could be time for #WengerIn to trend in Bavaria now the German Champions have axed their Croat coach.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Arsene Wenger is now the odds-on frontrunner to take over at Bayern Munich, as Ralf Rangnick ruled himself out of taking the job.

“Wenger has been out of work since May 2018 when Unai Emery replaced him at Arsenal, and surely he can do a better job at winning fans over at Bayern than Emery has at the Emirates.”


1/2 Arsene Wenger
5/1 Jose Mourinho
7/1 Max Allegri
10/1 Erik ten Hag
14/1 Hansi Flick
25/1 Mark van Bommel
