However, Bayern is having difficulties finding a new coach, with Arsene Wenger on Saturday contradicting the claims the club had turned him down as Kovac's successor and slammed the club for a lack of discretion.

On Wednesday, Rummenigge called me and I could not answer at that moment.

But it appears Bayern have rejected his advances and opportunity to step back into work because they could not agree on a length of contract, says The Sun.

"For myself, I wish good luck to Bayern and for me the situation is clear", Wenger told beIN Sports.

'He was in his vehicle going to the game against Olympiacos.

"We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me that they've signed [Hans-Dieter] Flik to be the coach".

Niko Kovac was given his marching orders after his Bayern side went down to a humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga last weekend.

Wenger was in charge of Arsenal from 1996 to 2018 winning the Premier League three times and the FA Cup on seven occasions.

Hansi Flick took temporary charge of the Bavarian giants for Wednesday night's 2-0 win over Olympiakos in the Champions League and will remain at the helm for tomorrow's crunch meeting with Borussia Dortmund. This is the true story'.

When asked about other candidates on Tuesday, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: "I won't talk about any names".

"I have known Franz Beckenbauer, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness for 40 years".

"I send my best wishes to Bayern, who are actually at a turning point right now, because Hoeneß - a key man for this club - is leaving".

"And we will certainly talk in the near future once more on the telephone".

"First of all, I have an incredible amount of respect for Arsene Wenger, I know him for an extremely long time".
