Jose Mourinho closely linked to Bayern Munich manager job

Bookies price Jose Mourinho as favourite to replace Niko Kovac at Bayern Munich

Following several months of turmoil, Bayern Munich have been able to return to the top of the Bundesliga, with Niko Kovac appearing to find his feet after previously struggling since making the colossal jump between Eintracht Frankfurt and The Bavarians last summer.

Despite clear efforts to improve where Bayern Munich eventually overtook Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga title race, Niko Kovac could still be unsafe in his position, judged as the most likely manager to leave Germany's top tier according to 888Sport. Current odds indicate that Jose Mourinho could be the man to replace him, Paddy Power being especially certain over this outcome.

Jose Mourinho given 1/2 odds to become next Bayern Munich manager

Priced as short as he is, it's becoming increasingly more believable in thinking that Jose Mourinho could be appointed as next Bayern Munich manager.

He's managed at every level and in all major leagues, leading out Chelsea and Manchester United in the English Premier League, Porto, Benfica and Uniao de Leiria in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, Real Madrid in Spanish La Liga and Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A, so he certainly fits the bill in the criteria a team such as FC Bayern Munich would usually look for.

Removing Niko Kovac as manager would now be a surprise after he eventually managed to find some stability in charge of the club. They're in need of a massive clear out in order to revamp a mostly ageing side, so we can only assume that he'll be given a chance instead of appointing Jose Mourinho as manager.

Any chance of managing Bayern Munich could be ruined by Mourinho's past

An issue that puts a larger gap between Jose Mourinho and Bayern Munich would be his past conduct, with his actions only worsening during his last managerial job at Old Trafford.

Over a two-year period at Manchester United, he hinted at fate playing against him, targeted individual players by name, fell out with the club's biggest stars, constantly irritated the media, and raised suspicion on everyone involved at the club, making it difficult for any of Europe's other top clubs to want such a controversial figure in the future.

The Portuguese football manager has many offers according to the odds, Paris Saint Germain, Inter Milan and Real Madrid all rumoured to be interested, and rumours indicate that he wants to be back in management in time for next season.
