German news outlet Bild, reports that Mourinho, who was recently dismissed by Roma, is gunning for an opportunity to manage the Bundesliga giants, giving recent performances of their current boss, Thomas Tuchel.
The Portuguese coach is known for his desire to manage in Europe’s top leagues and has set his sights on the Bundesliga, disregarding interests from the Saudi Pro League.
Despite Tuchel’s presence in Bayern Munich, Mourinho is said to be prepared to step in if the opportunity arises.
Tuchel has faced criticism due to Bayern’s recent loss to Bayer Leverkusen, which left them trailing five points in the league.
Mourinho’s interest in managing in Germany is not new. In 2019, he mentioned in an interview that he was studying German and did not rule out a move to the Bundesliga.
His willingness to learn the language suggests a serious intent to manage in Germany, potentially at Bayern Munich.
