Bayern Munich’s search for a new manager has hit a setback as Ralf Rangnick has decided not to join the Bundesliga giants.

Thomas Tuchel and Bayern have agreed to part ways at the end of the season, which means a new coach will be needed for the 2024–25 season. Some fans have started a petition to keep Tuchel, but he has not shown any signs of changing his mind.

Tuchel has taken Bayern to the semi-finals of the Champions League, setting up an exciting clash with Real Madrid after a thrilling 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.

Despite the possibility of winning a European title, Tuchel may still leave the club.

The former RB Leipzig and Manchester United manager Rangnick declined the opportunity to lead Bayern as he plans to fulfill his contract with Austria until the 2026 World Cup.

Rangnick said:

“I am the Austrian team leader with all my heart. This task gives me incredible joy, and I am determined to successfully continue on our chosen path. I would like to expressly emphasize that this is not a rejection of FC Bayern, but a decision for my team and our common goals. Our full concentration is on the European Championship. We will do everything we can to get as far as possible there!”
