Bayern Munich have chosen their next manager and former boss, Pep Guardiola, has given his approval.
The Bundesliga champions fired Carlo Ancelotti last week, following a 3-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
His assistant, Willy Sagnol, has taken over on an interim basis and was in charge when Bayern were held to a 2-2 draw by Hertha Berlin on Sunday.
Bayern president, Uli Hoeness, however made it clear that the club was looking for a permanent replacement, with former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel and Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann among the favourites.
Guardiola, who won three Bundesliga titles in three seasons at Bayern between 2013 and 2016, was spotted with Hoeness at a restaurant in Munich.
“I told him who we would appoint in the next few days,” Hoeness told Munich newspaper AZ of Guardiola.
“He was satisfied.”
