Ranking the contenders for the Bayern Munich job

FC Yahoo

As recipients of the last five Bundesliga titles and regular mainstays in the latter stages of the Champions League, Bayern Munich are rather used to success.

This season, however, Die Roten haven’t quite followed the script: Carlo Ancelotti was fired last week after a humiliating performance in Paris and they were held to their second successive 2-2 draw in the league at the weekend. They sit five points behind league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Former Bayern star Willy Sagnol is acting as interim manager right now, but the Bavarian outfit are in need of a new permanent manager. Here, FC Yahoo run through the top five candidates for the role.

Be warned: the list might upset Liverpool fans…
