Rangnick confirms link with Bayern Munich

Rangnik is currently considered a favorite candidate at FC Bayern, who are looking for a replacement for coach Thomas Tuchel. The 50-year-old is set to leave Munich at the end of the season after being relegated from the Championship. ÖFB sporting director Peter Schattel told ORF that Rangnick had informed president Klaus Mitterdorfer and he “had an offer from Bayern Munich and was thinking about it”. The German feels very comfortable at ÖFB. “On the other hand, when a club like Bayern Munich comes knocking, it's understandable that you think about the interest of this club,” Schatel said.

Rangnick says he hasn't received a firm offer yet. Only then will the German seriously consider a change. “The moment Bayern say: We want you. Then I have to ask myself: Do I want that? “We are fully focused on the European Championship.”

Rangnick left open the question of whether he would fulfill his current contract, which runs until 2026. “If I want to do something else, I will discuss it with the ÖFB first.” Financial matters do not play a role, German stressed. “For me it's about other things: Can I make a difference? Can I make a difference? Is there a chance to make a team and win? That's what drives me. If that doesn't motivate me anymore, it's time to retire,” said Rangnick, the injured team captain. David Alaba (torn cruciate ligament) reiterated that he is unlikely to play at the European Championships.

Schöttel confirmed this. “In terms of financial aspects, he doesn't have to think about it. That's why I'm very confident that he'll appreciate the package we've put together over the last few years and continue with us.
