Bayern Munich have sacked head coach Niko Kovac.
The Croatian who led Die Roten to the German league and cup double last season – was dismissed on Sunday, after meeting CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, president Uli Hoeness and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
His departure comes just over 24 hours after Bayern were thrashed 5-1 by his former club, Eintracht Frankfurt, on Saturday.
That result was only Bayern’s second defeat in the Bundesliga this season in 10 games.
They currently sit fourth in the table, with 18 points, four points behind top spot but have already conceded 16 goals, more than anyone else in the top half.
The last time Bayern elected to sack a manager mid-season, Carlo Ancelotti bit the bullet and Jupp Heynckes returned for
a caretaker spell – leading them to the title.
Bayern haven’t failed to win their domestic league since being pipped by Jurgen Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund in 2012.
