Ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Dietmar Hamann has claimed his former side have been in contact with Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino over the soon-to-be vacant managerial position.

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by the Bundesliga champions in September and replaced by Jupp Heynckes.

It's not yet known whether the German will stay on at the Allianz Arena where he's enjoying his fourth spell as manager, and it appears the Bavarians are trying to persuade the Spurs gaffer to head to Munich.
